Caroline Weinstein is a fully registered Clinical Psychologist, a Member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS), a Fellow of the APS College of Clinical Psychology and a trained Yoga Practitioner. Caroline has nearly 20 years experience working with adults and adolescents in a range of settings including; mental health services, community health, tertiary education facilities, the forensic arena and in private practice. Caroline takes a “biopsychosocial” approach to optimal health, i.e. the interaction between the physical systems of the body, psychological make-up and social issues. She uses a wide range of evidence based therapeutic methods (including but not limited to; Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy) tailored to meet the specific needs of each individual client, each of which places a significant emphasis on the quality of the relationship between the client and the psychologist.
For close to 13 years until December 2021, Caroline consulted at headspace – the National Youth Mental Health Foundation with young people aged 12-25 years. At the Talking Cure, Caroline provides psychological intervention to adults and older adolescents for general psychological issues including but not restricted to: depression and mood disorders, anxiety and panic disorders, stress management, self-harming behaviours, substance use, anger management, sleep disorders, abuse and trauma, perinatal counselling and grief and loss.
Caroline has a holistic approach to well-being, and hence her approach to counselling is that each individual is the expert of their own experience and has an innate capacity for growth and development. The therapeutic environment is viewed as an opportunity for a collaborative process whereby new and innovative ways to view and deal with life issues are challenged and explored.
Additionally, during the Covid pandemic, Caroline, together with her colleague and close friend Liv Downing, developed the Mind You program. A Mental Health program for the workplace delivered online or in person based on the neuroscience of connection. The Mind You 9-module program, is delivered on a secure online
platform, and is a combination of beautifully produced videos, fact/reference sheets, tailored meditations, team challenges, live Zoom check-in calls and post-module questions, developed by registered psychologists with over 40 years of combined experience in the mental health space.
