Jeffrey Kelly is a clinical psychologist with over 15 years experience in public mental health and private practice. He currently works in his own private practice and as a supervisor to staff at the Victorian Aids Council. During Jeffrey’s early student placements he was introduced to CBT and Psychodynamic therapeutic approaches simultaneously which he says informed his entire approach to practicing, so have a listen to the episode to find out why!
Jeffrey completed his Master of Clinical Psychology at Latrobe University in Melbourne in 1999. He began working for the Waiora Community Mental Health Service in 2001, part of the Alfred Hospital’s Community Psychiatry Program, and stayed for 7 years. Much of his time at the Alfred was spent coordinating a Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) Program with clients with a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD).
Jeff has extensive experience as both a clinician and supervisor and brings a wealth of advice and tips for early career psychologists. So let’s see how we all wear it differently with Jeffrey Kelly.
Jeff’s Best Self Care Tip
Jeff would also like to remind us that when starting out it’s important to relax and take a little pressure off yourself. Don’t be in a hurry to get other people better, people get better in their own time. Give yourself permission not know the answers, and be flexible.
