Amy Goldstein

I completed my Master of Clinical Psychology in 1998 at The University of Western Australia and have been working as a Clinical Psychologist for more than 14 years. I began my career in child and adolescent mental health working for many years in outpatient clinics for children, adolescents and their families. I then worked in adult mental health for two years in Melbourne specialising in treating individuals with complex personality issues and providing consultation for primary health care providers. I returned to Perth to work as a specialist clinical psychologist in adolescent mental health where I not only treated at risk young people, but provided consultation and training to the broader professional community. I now work only in private practice which I have built up over the past 7 years and accept referrals from a wide source of professionals in addition to self referrals.

My specific areas of expertise include:
 - Working with children and adolescence
 - Issues of self confidence, anxiety, panic and trauma
 - Depression and other mood related problems
 - Chronic fatigue syndrome
 - Family and relationship issues
 - Adjustment issues
 - Substance use issues and
 - Professional training and supervision

The models that have informed my clinical practice over the years include:
 - Cognitive-behavioral therapy
 - Psychodynamic psychotherapy
 - Acceptance and commitment therapy
 - Mindfulness training and
 - Clinical hypnosis
