Background & Approach

Manon has over a decade of experience in mental health care and is passionate about psychological treatment that is evidence-based, high quality, and delivered in a manner that is thoughtful, humane, collaborative, trauma-informed, and that recognises and values diversity.

 

A longstanding interest in human experiences, mental health, and working with people in ways that lead to meaningful change led Manon to complete a Doctor of Psychology (Clinical) in 2013.  Her doctoral thesis focused on non-suicidal self-injury, emotion regulation, and attachment.

Before moving to the Northern Rivers, Manon worked in specialist mental health services in Melbourne, across primary health, public mental health, and private practice settings. She has benefited from experience, training, and supervision within leading youth mental health services. She has acquired supervision, leadership, consultation, research, and training skills. After relocating to the Northern Rivers, Manon took up a clinical leadership role in the out-of-home care sector before establishing Two Minds Clinical Practice. 

 

Manon has worked with individuals from all age groups with a range of complex mental health concerns, such as mood disorders, anxiety, eating disorders, trauma-related disorders, psychosis, substance use disorders, and neurodevelopmental disorders.  She has gained particular expertise in the treatment of borderline personality disorder.

 

In her practice, Manon draws upon cognitive behavioural, relational, trauma-focused, acceptance and commitment, and mindfulness-based approaches.  In addition to clinical psychology study, Manon has gained accreditation as a Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) practitioner. This framework places emphasis on therapist-client collaboration in generating new understandings (or reformulations) of current concerns. Change is created by identifying and shifting problematic relational patterns derived in earlier life. Manon is also trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), an evidence-based trauma-focused treatment recommended by the World Health Organization and the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies.
