Jo Hanna
Clinical Psychologist

Clinic Days: Wed, Thu

Jo holds a Masters degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of New England. She is a warm, engaged, and compassionate therapist who strives to provide a safe therapeutic relationship with her clients.

Jo has a special interest in working with children, adolescents, families, and young adults experiencing a range of psychological and behavioural concerns, including stress and anxiety, depression, complex trauma, life transitions, body image and self-esteem concerns, gender and sexuality diversity and interpersonal difficulties. She believes the therapeutic relationship is extremely important for therapy and as such aims to create a collaborative, comfortable, and non-judgmental environment. Jo utilises an attachment-based approach to therapy and encourages clients to explore their early life experiences and how this may influence their overall well-being. She adapts the therapeutic process to each person based on their difficulties, individual needs and personal strengths.

Jo has worked individually, with groups, and with families in a variety of settings, including the university psychology clinic, camps for disadvantaged children, critical incident support and well-being checks, and adolescent outpatient and inpatient hospital settings. She has also worked academically at the University of New England and in research at the University of Sydney.

Jo provides evidence-based treatments and has worked extensively within the following therapeutic modalities: Family Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy and Schema Therapy.
