Dr Esther Kint
BSc(Psych) Honours PhD (Clin Psych) MAPS
I am a registered Clinical Psychologist with experience working in a variety of public and private settings, including Disability Services Commission, Swan Adult Community Mental Health, Psychological Healthcare, and Joondalup Psychology Centre. I have experience working with clients of all ages (children, adolescents and adults), from diverse backgrounds, and of various presentations.
My particular interest lies in treating trauma-related conditions (and the development of resilience following adversity), as well as assisting people with a broad range of issues such as depression, anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, grief and loss, pain management, and relationship issues. I use a range of evidence-based treatment approaches, tailored to meet the needs of each individual client.
I pride myself on being a warm, authentic, compassionate, and non-judgemental therapist, who focuses on identifying clients’ strengths and enhancing their overall wellbeing, rather than focusing solely on “the problem” itself. My purpose is to create a relaxed and supportive therapeutic environment, that encourages clients to feel safe to explore their presiding difficulties and empowers them to initiate lasting change.
