Doctor of Clinical Psychology
Bachelor of Psychological Science (Honours)
Clinical Psychologist registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA)
Dr. Katherine Honeyman has extensive experience working within both community mental health and forensic/correctional settings. Kat has an empathetic, compassionate, and non-judgemental approach, where she believes that much progress in therapy is underpinned by building a strong therapeutic relationship. Kat’s therapy sessions are guided by these principles, allowing clients to explore their vulnerabilities in a safe environment and feel heard.
Kat specialises in dual diagnosis, the condition in which one has a mental illness alongside a substance abuse problem. By specialising in dual diagnosis, a client is able to be treated for two or more disorders at the one location, with the one psychologist.
Kat’s areas of expertise include, but are not limited to:
– Drug and Alcohol Addiction
– Offending Behaviour
– Emotional Dysregulation
– Personality Disorders
– Mood Disorders/Anxiety Disorders
– Psychotic Disorders
– Self-development and Self Compassion
Utilising a holistic approach, Kat draws from a combination of evidence-based psychological approaches. Such approaches include, but are not limited to, Schema Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Motivational Interviewing and Supportive Counselling. Kat also has extensive experience in facilitating group programs.
Please note that Kat has experience in report writing where she is able to prepare Court Reports as well as support letters for University and the like. She also has experience working with client’s referred from TAC and NDIS and writing reports for these clients.
She has a solid understanding of the court process and is available to work with individuals who find themselves involved in the Corrections system (e.g., CISP, Parole) that are seeking psychological support and intervention.
Kat considers therapy to be a collaborative journey made between the client and the therapist. She brings into session a strengths approach, focusing not only on what is problematic in the client’s life but also drawing on what is healthy and strengthening these components. Having worked with a diverse range of clients, many often disadvantaged individuals, Kat strives to have clients’ view themselves as a person (not a disorder). Through therapy, Kat hopes that self-belief is developed, alongside the idea that we are human, not perfect.
