A word from

DR SIMONE SHAW, CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGIST & NEUROPSYCHOLOGIST

Simone has 13 years’ experience working across both government and private sectors for various indusucting 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, 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.

Simone has recently relocated to the Sunshine Coast to live her dream of raising her two young boys on acreage.  She excited to be associated with the Naturally Into Health team in order to provide holistic treatment services to clients.  Her clinic days are Wednesday-Friday and she warmly welcomes new clients.
