Neralie first obtained her general registration as a psychologist in 2009, and has worked in a variety of private and public settings over the past 10 years. This has allowed her to build experience working with children, teens, and adults whose lives were affected by a range of psychological difficulties.
Neralie uses a variety of treatment modalities, including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Motivational Interviewing, Schema Therapy, and Circle of Security (parenting).
As well as working in general clinical psychology, Neralie has also developed specialist knowledge and experience in psychological treatments for insomnia and other sleep problems. She has previously worked with the Canberra Sleep Clinic, the Adelaide Institute for Sleep Health (Repatriation General Hospital), and the Child & Adolescent Sleep Clinic (Flinders University). She received her training in sleep from Emeritus Professor Leon Lack and Professor Michael Gradisar, who are world-renowned experts in adult and paediatric sleep (respectively).
Neralie has given presentations at local, interstate, and international conferences and workshops, and has authored a number of peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters in the areas of child and adolescent sleep. She has recently completed her PhD, investigating the use of sleep restriction therapy as a transdiagnostic intervention for insomnia and anxiety in middle childhood (6-14yrs).
