Our Story

Breakfree Psychology in Townsville originated out of a desire to create a couples therapy practice in Townsville, to be able to help couples create a satisfying relationship. To also be able to assist individuals who have had life long struggles with anxiety and depression and interpersonal difficulties. 

I have a passion for therapies that can assist a person in getting to the heart of issues, that can provide understanding, that have clear easy to use strategies for lasting change, while also making the therapy session the first place to facilitate this change.

Breakfree is one of few practices in North Queensland to offer psychologists with expertise in the Gottman method for couples counselling and skilled in helping couples with conflict, unfulfilling relationships, and specific relationship problems using the Gottman Method of Couples Counselling. This approach was developed from research conducted by the Gottman Institute over the last 40 years, into what makes relationships work.

Breakfree is also one of few practices in the north providing psychologists highly trained in Schema Therapy, a helpful approach for assisting individual adults who have experienced considerable personal, social, and occupational disruption throughout their life. This Schema Therapy approach can help addresses the root cause of these problems, which can assists an individuals in finally being able to breakfree from the emotional pain, that is the result of repeatedly having to face these upsets in life.

We are however a practice that is able to offer other evidence based therapies including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and are able to treat a range of presentations to assist a range of adults in their struggles, whether that be individually, or in their relationship, or both.
