Jay Chinnery is a respected psychologist with extensive experience helping clients address challenges and manage mental health issues. As a member of the Australian Psychological Society, he provides a range of APS-endorsed psychotherapy to individuals, couples, and families, and enjoys working with the diversity of his clients.
Jay is passionate about supporting clients in psychological distress, believing that distress stems from unseen parts of the mind competing or operating in tension. Therapy then becomes a process of unifying these competing parts. To achieve this, Jay first creates a safe space and builds trust with his clients. He then guides clients through a process where they learn how to deconstruct problems, identify and understand triggers, build awareness, tolerate difficult emotions, heal wounds, identify solutions, and take remedial action. Jay aims to provide an environment where clients feel embodied, empowered, and fully themselves.
Each client comes to therapy with their own unique story and set of experiences. Jay respects individuality and tailors each session to meet your specific needs and goals. He also integrates many evidence-based therapies into his practice and will advise which he recommends for your treatment. Modalities Jay uses frequently include Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Schema Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Imago Therapy, and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy. Jay believes therapy can be one of the most rewarding and liberating experiences in life and looks forward to working with you soon.
