Natasha Herbert is a warm, down-to-earth Clinical Psychologist. She is calm and dynamic in her approach, working with each person’s strengths in therapy. Natasha is non-judgemental and believes in the value of building a strong therapeutic relationship where clients feel safe, at ease and supported to make effective changes for their life.
Natasha has over 5 years’ experience working as a Psychologist across multiple settings including public and private hospitals, and private practice. She enjoys working with children, adolescents, adults and older adults on whatever stressors and difficulties they may be experiencing. She has experience across multiple specialist psychology centres including the Clinical Research Unit for Anxiety and Depression (CRUFAD) at St Vincent’s Hospital where she worked specifically with people experiencing intense and interfering worry, panic, obsessive and compulsive thoughts/behaviours, social anxiety and health related anxiety.
Natasha completed specialist training at the Child Behaviour Research Clinic (CBRC). This included working with parents and families where children and young people experienced behavioural and emotional difficulties (e.g. anger and aggression, emotional outbursts, oppositional behaviour, school refusal). Natasha has also worked with adolescents and young adults at Headspace, supporting them through a range of difficulties including depression, anxiety, worry, stress, eating and body concerns, family and peer conflict, self-harm and suicidal thoughts.
In addition to her work in private practice here at Mindworx Psychology, Natasha works at the Peter Beumont Eating Disorders Service at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. She has a special interest in the treatment and management of eating disorders in adults, and has worked extensively in this area for the past 5 years.
Natasha’s main treatment approaches are Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT). She is trauma informed and works with each person’s strengths in order to empower and guide them toward their goals. She understands stress and setbacks can be difficult to work through. Her approach is patient and enthusiastic, and she will work alongside you to help build your skills and self-confidence.
Natasha sees clients by appointment Wednesdays and Fridays, including after hours.
