Hi There,

My name is Ghizala Jafri and I am a Registered Psychologist. I studied at the University of Newcastle. I am a member of both Australian Psychological Society and Australian Association of Psychologists Incorporated

I currently provide counseling/psychological intervention as a private practitioner in Canberra with a special interest in mental health, adolescence, relationships and cross cultural issues. 

I am from a Pakistani background and have been in Australia for over 40 years. In addition to English, I speak Urdu, Hindi and Fiji Indian and have an in-depth knowledge of collectivist cultures.

I completed my training in Australia. I am trained (to name a few) in Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectic Behavior Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, CALD and Indigenous Specific Therapy, Couple and Family Therapy.

I have extensive experience in mental health, and specific interest in PTSD, Trauma, Anxiety, Depression, Chronic Pain, Drug and Alcohol Issues, Borderline Structures, and Relationship/Family Issues. 

I take a holistic approach and focus on psycho-education, symptoms management, re-framing perspectives, sleep hygiene, skills development, breathing exercises, mindfulness, self care and nurturing connections.

I accept Worker Compensation Clients, LGBT Clients, VVCS, DVA, and NDIS 

I would like the opportunity to work with you to understand aspects of your mental well-being and identify the elements that influences or impact you. I would like to help you take control of your life and find a happier and healthier YOU. 

Take Care,

Ms. Ghizala Jafri
