Dr Amanda White is a Senior Psychologist at M1 Psychology, where she has been an integral part of the clinic development, and offers a range of therapeutic, assessment, and training services.
Amanda is a STAP accredited supervisor and can provide supervision to psychologists and counsellors. She is a full member of the Australian Psychological Society, and is certified with the American Board of Hypnotherapy, holding an accredited Diploma of Hypnotherapy.
Amanda has developed an outcomes-focused practice following her positions in both the public and private sectors. She is a highly experienced clinician, having worked successfully with a variety of conditions, including mood disorders such as depression and bipolar, anxiety, addiction, cognitive and somatic symptom disorders, eating disorders, and personality issues. Amanda also has experience fostering resilience with people who have intellectual and physical concerns.
Amanda offers tailored treatment plans based on her clients needs. Her emphasis is working with individual adults and older adolescents, rather than couples or children, as these individuals hold greater agency, ie the power to act. Her treatment programs are based on an eclectic approach, meaning evidence based best practice is merged with the presentation and problem solving approach of each client.
Her therapeutic orientation is primarily grounded in Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) and Mindfulness based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). Amanda finds that by cultivating both wellness and strengths, we can experience powerful and lasting change in our lives.
