Expert psychologists: Uncovering Trapped
Distress and Facilitating Positive Change

Finding help when you’re feeling overwhelmed or that you or someone you care about is struggling can be very challenging. The psychologist at Novoa Health is experienced, registered and uses evidence based, effective treatment to help make a plan to overcome struggles, deal with pain and feel hopeful about the future.



Our aim is to understand your individual problems, goals and obstacles, choose relevant and appropriate methods of support and therapeutic modalities and make therapy sessions as productive as possible.

During sessions we will create a safe and understanding place apart where it’s possible to uncover the mechanisms and patterns that keep us trapped in distress, anxiety, depression or trauma. We will then move to reduce emotional distress and promote positive behavioural change so you can feel hopeful and optimistic about tomorrow.

My Beliefs

Jessie’s unwavering belief in the possibility of change and optimal health is contagious and will enable you to make positive and meaningful changes in your life.

Successful therapy is about connection, and this is one of Jessie’s particular strengths. Her aim is to make your session comfortable and productive, without over-reliance on worksheets and psychological theory. With her down to earth approach it becomes easy for you to slip into “doing the work”.

With warmth and curiosity, Jessie will gently challenge you to face the hard stuff, providing the space you need to begin to heal.

Jessie uses evidence-based therapies including:  Cognitive Behaviour Therapies (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing). In addition to this, Jessie has a special interest in wilderness therapy, and is a published researcher in this field.  If this appeals to you, she can integrate the outdoors and natural environment into your sessions. Jessie treats a broad range of anxieties, depression, addictions, trauma, family conflict, friendship and social problems, school, uni and work stresses.
