My name is Amy Howie and I am the Psychologist and Director of Live Well Now Psychology. I have over 17 years’ experience as a psychologist and have assisted many clients across the lifespan who have presented with a wide range of issues. Some issues include anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, grief, personality disorders, relationship difficulty, adjustment problems, addiction, health issues and life transitions. I have a supportive, practical, non-judgemental style and have a home-based practice offering a comfortable and relaxed environment for you to be supported in your journey toward valued living. If you choose to work with me, we will work as a team to help you build the life you want.
I offer short, medium and long-term therapy for adults, adolescents, and couples. I offer services through Medicare, Work Cover, Employee Assistance Programs (EAP), private health, and am a provider for Australian Defence Force personnel. I prepare psychological reports and offer consultation and supervision to other health professionals.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, a Master of Applied Psychology, am registered with the Australian Board of Psychology and am a full member of the Australian Psychological Society. I am also a Board-Certified Supervisor for intern psychologists and am able to offer individual or group clinical supervision for counsellors. This means that I must work to the highest professional standard, adhere to a Code of Ethics and am required to do at least 30 hours of professional development every year to maintain my accreditation. I have attended training in numerous models of therapy over the course of my career and draw from evidence-based models of therapy such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy and Schema Therapy.
