Meet your psychologists

Karina Annear

Clinical Psychologist
BCom, BScPsych(Hons), MAppPsych(Clinical)

I work with clients to change symptoms of distress as well as gaining insight into patterns of behaviour and how these develop. I would love to help you achieve positive well-being and foster your self-discovery.

Karina has worked in Health and Education for 15 years.  She has worked in hospitals, outpatient, government, not-for-profit, and university settings, and in private practice.  Karina was previously employed in education and psychological research at the tertiary level.

Karina’s therapeutic style is warm, empathetic and authentic.  She believes that therapy is a collaborative, fluid experience between the client and practitioner.  Karina believes in treating the whole person; understanding and appreciating the complexity of humans, their personality structure, the impact of life events, relationships and the connection between physical and mental health and wellbeing.

Karina offers therapy for a broad range of psychological and emotional issues, including anxiety & panic, depression, grief and loss, PTSD, adjustment and personality disorders. Karina has a special interest in the treatment of trauma, as well as health-related, older-adult, life-stage, and identity issues.

Karina practices to a psychodynamic, attachment-based framework and believes in the important role of the therapeutic alliance in healing. Karina is experienced in treating trauma using eye movement desensitisation & reprocessing (EMDR) and somatic experiencing therapy, and draws on mindfulness-based cognitive-behaviour therapy (MB-CBT) and dialectic behaviour therapy (DBT) techniques to facilitate change.
