Dr Lynsey Byrom

Clinical Psychologist & Board-Approved Supervisor

Geelong & Australia-wide (via Face-to-face & Telehealth)

I am a Clinical Psychologist and provide individual therapy to adults in Geelong (via face-to-face and Telehealth) and anywhere in Australia (via Telehealth). I have over 15 years experience utilising several evidence-based approaches to help my clients achieve their therapy goals. I predominantly employ Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) in my private practice work however believe that every person is unique so will tailor therapy to each client and will also utilise skills from other evidence-based therapies such as Compassion Focussed Therapy (CFT), Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Schema Therapy (ST) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) where appropriate. I draw from my varied experience having worked with individuals, couples and groups in correctional, hospital, community, research, corporate, defence and private mental health settings.

Life presents challenges and sometimes we struggle to overcome them. Sometimes we need that extra source of support and guidance to help us when we’re feeling stuck. I like to help my clients learn new ways of responding to their life’s challenges; to free them from their old restrictive patterns that leave them feeling trapped.

My approach is collaborative, compassionate, and supportive. I aim to help my clients create a life that is with awareness of what is truly important to them while also effectively handling the pain and distress that they are currently struggling with. I teach practical skills with immediate application to their specific needs and goals.

I am also a Board Approved Supervisor and offer supervision to clinical psychologists, psychologists and other allied health workers who have an interest in working with adult clients particularly from an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) perspective. I offer ongoing or one-off supervision sessions in-person or via video-calls.

I also offer psycho-educational workshops and seminar presentations to businesses and organisations and have experience presenting to a range of groups across various sectors including law, finance, defence and health. Workshops and seminar presentations are client-directed and the structure (e.g., informational/seminar, interactive workshop), content and length can vary considerably.

Are you struggling with unwanted thoughts, memories, feelings, urges and sensations?

Do you feel like your thoughts and feelings are pushing you around?

Do you feel like you are going through life stuck on autopilot?

Have you lost motivation or direction in your life?

Don’t believe everything you think

Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom
