About Dr Graham du Plessis

I am a Clinical Psychologist with over 18 years of experience. My therapeutic style involves integrating evidence-based practices with genuine respect for individuals’ unique needs and preferences. I have a particular interest in working with professionals and executives.

I strive to develop a therapeutic relationship with my clients that fosters growth and development. I enjoy working with adult women and men who are facing challenges such as depression, anxiety, loss and grief. I am passionate about living well and developing psychological strengths.

Much of my work is grounded in evidence-based positive psychology, which bolsters individuals’ ability to manage challenges and thrive. I believe that challenges are opportunities for growth and development. I am interested in not only helping my clients overcome the difficulties they are facing but also in helping them to use these difficulties to become their most authentic selves.

I am interested in many areas of psychology and have worked in various settings, including private practice, consulting, the public health care sector, police, defence, and universities.

I have a PhD in the field of positive psychology where considerable enthusiasm has seen a growing proliferation in research and practice. I have authored and co-authored over 20 academic papers and dissertations in the areas of Organisation Psychology, Clinical Psychology, and Behavioural Finance, among others.

As a university lecturer and supervisor at the University of Queensland and the University of Southern Queensland, I am very involved with training clinical psychology students and interns and strongly emphasise evidence-based intervention and best practice methods.
