Aung is a Clinical Psychologist who has been practising in Australia for over 30 years. He has worked with both public and private sector clients presenting with a wide range of issues, and age groups ranging from children to seniors, couples, families and work environments.
Due to his extensive career and experience, Aung has in-depth knowledge and skills in several different areas. These include dealing with behavioural, emotional and psychological conditions related to diverse personal situations such as anxiety, phobia, anger, depression and trauma. He is also experienced in dealing with issues arising from social and cultural situations such as self and gender identity issues (inclusive of LGBTIQ culture).
Aung’s orientation has been to “learn with the client” and share to empower people in discovering their own potentials.
Recently, Aung returned from setting up a psychology clinic and teaching clinical psychology at the University of Yangon in Burma/Myanmar, where he was born. This is the second clinic he has set up overseas; the first being in Thailand on the Thai-Burma border for refugees, displaced people and migrant workers.
Aung was also the Director of the Undergraduate Clinical Psychology Program at Loughborough University in the UK and has supervised postgraduate clinical psychology interns from four universities in Western Australia and the Assumption University in Thailand.
