Jacinta Grima

Clinical Psychologist

Bsc (Psychology) Hons M Clin Psych

I am a clinical psychologist who works with people of all ages; however I specialise in providing therapy to children, adolescents and families.
I believe in collaborating with clients to provide an authentic therapeutic environment, and integrating evidence-based treatments (i.e. treatments that have been shown to be most effective in research studies) such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy. I also work from a family systems and attachment perspective, taking into account the relationships between carers and their children. I care deeply about highlighting strengths and utilising these to help my clients live a full, healthy and happy life, whilst being able to respond to life’s challenges with resilience, self-compassion, skill and courage.
I have over a decade of experience working with clients across the lifespan in public and private settings in both urban and rural areas. I have a particular interest in working with families struggling with a range of difficulties that emerge during childhood and adolescence (such as behaviour problems, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, perfectionism, ADHD, Tourette’s disorder/tics, school and study related difficulties, autism, parent-child relationship problems) and working with parents during the perinatal and postnatal period and adjustment to parenthood. I work closely with other health professionals (e.g., psychiatrists, paediatricians) and schools involved in client care and I am trained in parenting programs such as Triple P, Tuning into Kids and Circle of Security.
I am a member of the Australian Clinical Psychology Association (ACPA), the Australian Psychological Society (APS) and a Fellow of the APS College of Clinical Psychologists (FCCLP).
I enjoy providing supervision to psychologists, clinical psychologists and clinical psychologist registrars privately and through the Western Sydney University, Psychology Clinic.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my young family, doing yoga or creating art.
