Anna Brasher

Masters Psychologist

AHPRA (Psychology Board) and Medicare Provider Registered
Full Member of the Australian Psychological Society (since 2004)

Anna-Grett (Anna to most), has a Master’s Degree in Counselling Psychology after six years of university training.

 

The world of psychology was a natural career option for Anna – her father was a Psychiatrist – so counselling is in her genes and connecting with people, her obvious passion.

 

But teaching is also in Anna's genes - her mum was a teacher - so Anna has a big whiteboard in her office for both her and her clients to use. When our eyes are connected to 80% of our brain, we sometimes need to draw pictures (no art involved) to explain things better.

 

Since 2000, Anna has always been in private practice and has had good rapport with her clients and the GPs in her community.

​After many years of child and adult counselling, now in her 50s and mum to two adult sons, Anna has moved on to only working with adults in counselling, age 28 and older.
