Leanne Oshry

Leanne is a registered psychologist with specialisations in clinical psychology as well as educational and developmental psychology. Leanne completed her training in both South Africa and Melbourne.

With nearly two decades of experience in the field, Leanne is a dedicated and passionate psychologist specialising in working with individuals of all ages, from children to adolescents and adults. She has gained valuable experience in diverse settings, including schools, hospitals, and clinical private practice.

Leanne offers individual therapy using various evidence-based intervention models rich in theoretical frameworks. She firmly believes that therapy is most effective when it’s a collaborative process tailored to meet each client’s unique needs. Leanne’s training includes Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), and Schema Therapy, allowing her to offer an integrative approach to best serve her clients.

Leanne deeply appreciates attachment-based models that emphasise the critical role of healthy connections in predicting resilience and psychological well-being. One of her favourite practice areas involves child-focused parent work, where she guides parents in tuning into their child’s emotional world and fostering psychological immunity through emotional co-regulation. As a mother of two girls, Leanne understands the significance of normalising the challenges of parenting.

Leanne also provides a comprehensive range of standardised assessments for children and adolescents. These assessments encompass educational, social-emotional, and behavioural domains, ensuring a thorough evaluation of their needs and development.

Leanne strongly emphasises the significance of the therapeutic relationship as the cornerstone of a successful therapeutic journey. Her approach is characterised by compassion, warmth, kindness, and honesty, creating a safe and supportive environment for her clients.
