Celin's enthusiasm for working with people with OCD really shows when you meet her. She has a keen passion for assisting people of all ages and their families who have been affected by OCD and related conditions including Anxiety (e.g., Social Anxiety, Generalised Anxiety, Agoraphobia, Health Anxiety, Panic Disorder), and Depression. Celin gained a lot of her experience in this area whilst working clinically and developing treatment programs with the team within the OCD Inpatient program at The Melbourne Clinic. She began working at The Melbourne Clinic in 2010 while completing her final placement as a Clinical Doctorate student and stayed on with the team after completing her qualifications for a further four years. In 2013 Celin continued her specialised work in helping people with OCD while working privately in her own clinic at Melbourne Wellbeing Group.
Since leaving the team at The Melbourne Clinic in 2014, Celin has continued to work in her own practice by expanding her networks and helping people with OCD. She also runs lectures for post-graduate psychology students, and runs workshops on assessing, diagnosing, and treating symptoms of OCD and related conditions. She's also busy with running research trials examining the efficacy of a treatment manual she has developed which looks at the role of mindfulness based techniques as an adjunct to Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) for treating OCD.
Celin's formal qualifications include an Honours degree in Applied Science (Psychology) and a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology both from Deakin University in Melbourne. She is also a member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS), and is fully registered with Clinical endorsement with the Psychology Board of Australia as a Clinical Psychologist and as a board approved Supervisor.
