A word from


Sure Psychology was founded in January 2015 by Dr Simone Shaw, who remains the sole Owner and Director.  Simone has over 15 years’ experience working across both government and private sectors for various industries conducting independent medico-legal assessments and has experience in assessing and treating clients with a range of psychological and neurological conditions.

After becoming a first-time mother in 2013, Simone opted for a slower pace of work and sold her share of a large private psychology practice located at Wickham Terrace to establish her own firm, Sure Psychology, where she worked part time and continued to operate in inner city Brisbane for several years.  Although Simone has travelled extensively as a fly-in-fly-out Consultant Psychologist and has many years of experience working in Executive Leadership and Director roles, her most challenging (and rewarding!) role has been as a parent.  Simone understands first-hand the challenges associated with raising young children, owning and operating her own business, whilst striving to maintain an optimal work-life balance.  Since becoming a parent to three boys, Simone now specialises in providing antenatal and postnatal treatment to enhance the well-being of new and established families.  Simone’s therapeutic approaches to treatment include cognitive behavioural therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, interpersonal therapy, clinical hypnosis and motivational interviewing.  Simone adopts a holistic and practical approach to therapy in order to assist clients to learn effective skills and techniques to manage more effectively.

In December 2017, Sure Psychology relocated to the Sunshine Coast and their services have increased in demand over the past few years and they now have two additional Psychologists, Rory Fischer and Krystelle Pobar who have joined the company.  Sure Psychology is a boutique private practice in Buderim situated within a holistic wellness centre; alongside complimentary therapies including Naturopathy and Nutrition.  This holistic practice allows clients access to a range of services to assist in improving their physical and emotional wellbeing.  The Sure Psychology team look forward to working with you in relation to improving your emotional wellbeing.
