I enjoying helping my children achieve and overcome their challenges and feel I have the credentials required as I draw on my own experience, coupled with my empathy towards my family and other families like ours.
Trudy Booker, Psychologist
I have been working in the education setting for 25 years in different capacities.
After teaching for 9 years I completed my Graduate Diploma in Counselling Psychology and began working as a School Psychologist within the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD).
As a primary school teacher I have taught all year levels. This has provided me with valuable insight into what happens in the classroom setting, from a teacher and student perspective. I have an understanding of the how a classroom works.
I have worked as a psychologist (SSSO) for 10 years on a part-time basis. This role has included assessments, programming and counselling.
I currently work privately and in a local secondary school, with educational assessment being my primary focus.
My interest and passion has always been within the education setting and working with children. The majority of my work has been focused around supporting children with special needs. As a teacher I understood the importance for children to operate from an Individual Learning Program and cater programs to their individual learning needs. This passion has carried through to my work as a psychologist where I am passionate about identifying how a child learns and communicating this to parents and teachers to ensure that the child is supported within the education setting.

My approach to working with young people includes both individual and group based counselling, utilising interventions such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Mindfulness, Relaxation Training, Behaviour Management and Social Skills Training.
I also have experience administering educational and cognitive assessments and providing strategies to parents and teachers to help children utilise their strengths and reach their full potential.
