Brenda Ford Psychologist
4 KellawY St, Fannie Bay NT
I am a Registered Psychologist, have adult children, and now, grandchildren. Over the years I have learned to use the art and science of Psychology to support clients and to help them achieve what they choose as the best possible outcome for them. I have an honors degree in Psychology, and a Master's in Public Health, and more than twenty five years experience in counseling in a variety of settings. I am trained in telephone counseling, and am qualified to offer online counseling via skype and video chat. Like most experienced and highly qualified psychologists, I use evidence based and outcome focused approaches. The type of counseling used is chosen to suit the individual client, and chosen to ensure that the client is supported and assisted to achieve whatever goals they choose to aim for. Experience: I began my professional life working in, among other places, small mining towns and small communities. As practical experience goes, that was an accelerated course. I saw people of all ages, and supported them through most of the situations that arise in the course of human life. At different times, I have worked with business organisations, young people, old - in some cases very old - people, and many in between. Quite often I have had clients referred to me to assist with managing physical problems. Stress, for example, can make diabetes worse. Qualifications & Education: First and foremost, I am registered with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency and have a Provider Number. People who have Private Medical Insurance, or who are referred by their Physician are eligible for refunds.

MyPsych NT is a Territory-based therapy service, established by Tanya Davis and Mark Drake, both Registered Psychologists. They hold extensive experience and qualifications in the mental health sector. MyPsych NT provides assessment, diagnosis and therapy services. We work with individuals, families, groups, organisations and members of our Armed Forces (Dept. of Defence). At MyPsych NT, we work with people to identify their individual needs. We create a working plan for strengthening and recovery that is based on the unique nature of each person. Both Tanya and Mark have focussed their practice on mindfulness intervention therapies. Self awareness in practice can change lives for the better, helping people move forward and develop strength of mind. We help people take control of their future. Both our psychologists have been recognised internationally as mindfulness intervention researchers and have drawn commentary and attention from American psychologists working in the same area. Mark and Tanya have dedicated themselves to being at the forefront of mindfulness based treatment in Australia.
