My name is Silvia Kennett and I am a registered psychologist and a member of the APS (Australian Psychological Society).
I provide services to individuals, couples and families in need of counselling and psychological interventions in Watsonia and St Helena. I incorporate CBT and Interpersonal counselling techniques to manage mood and anxiety presentations, for children, adolescents and adults. I focus on the fundamental principles of Positive Psychology which foster the identification and utilisation of personal strengths and abilities. I value the therapeutic relationship and strive to work in collaboration with clients in managing sensitive issues with confidence and in a confidential manner.
In addition, I have a background in primary and secondary teaching, speak two languages fluently and am attuned with cross cultural issues. I have also worked as a counsellor in primary, secondary and university settings.
