we are a group of psychologists passionate about working with families
We are a group of psychologists passionate about working with families. We were founded by clinical and forensic psychologist, Dr Andrea Shortland, and joined by clinical psychologist and systemic practitioner, Dr Jocelyne Kenny and Dr Ananda van den Heuvel. We have extensive experience in working with families from all walks of life across a range of settings. Our work has included working with: couples facing relationship difficulties; attachment and trauma difficulties with adopted and looked after children; and working with families following bereavement, traumatic experiences, acquired brain injury and long term neurological and health conditions. In addition to the online and digital resources provided by the Pocket Family Psychologist, we also offer face-to-face therapy through www.shortlandpsychology.com.
As psychologists, we are trained to draw upon multiple theoretical approaches and the research evidence base to develop flexible frameworks and interventions that are based upon individual client need.
