Cassandra Scicluna

Psychologist

I have a special interest in working with women and children, establishing a strong and trusting rapport with them

Cassandra is our caring and compassionate Psychologist. Cassandra believes that the therapeutic process starts the moment you step through the door and has chosen Eltham Health and Wellness so that her clients may experience the ambiance and individual care that the clinic provides.

Cassandra completed her Masters in Counselling Psychology and has since worked for over five years as an individual and group therapist in community health, private practice and in a tertiary education setting. Currently, she is participating in further specialized training through the Counselling Psychology Endorsement Program.

Cassandra works to provide you with a safe and calming space to help reduce your distress, build your resilience and improve your connection to life.

Cassandra takes a holistic approach to understanding you as a person presenting with a problem, rather than focusing purely on the problem. She tailors the treatment to suit you as an individual and utilises various modalities in her approach, including Client Centred Play Therapy (CCPT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Mindfulness.

Cassandra has a special interest in working with women and children, establishing a strong and trusting rapport with them and using techniques that she has researched and used herself (and knows works!)
