Lucas Silva-Myles

Psychologist & Clinical Psychology Registrar
 
 Bachelor of Arts (Psychology)
 Graduate Diploma of Psychology
 Master of Clinical Psychology (with Distinction)

Lucas is a Registered Psychologist and Clinical Psychology Registrar. He is also an academic at Deakin University, where he teaches, research, and write lectures for clinical and cross-cultural subjects.


 Therapeutic Approach

Lucas’ therapeutic approach is firstly to hear his client’s story and understand what they are going through without judgement. Trust is an incredibly important factor for him so that they feel like they are an equal part of their therapy –after all, you are the expert of ‘you’!

Otherwise, Lucas uses evidence-based practices such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Narrative Therapy (NT) to tailor his approach to help his client’s understanding, and work through, their problems as unique individuals and not as part of a general diagnosis.


 Experience

Lucas also studied, practised, and researched interstate and internationally, working in locations such as rural Queensland, Adelaide, and Osaka, Japan. His current research project will also take him to Prague to present on Indigenous Australian issues at the International Congress of Psychology when the pandemic is lifted.

Generally, Lucas is experienced in mood disorders such as depression and anxiety disorders, such as Phobias and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. In addition, he also had specific training and experience with the following:

  • Student/Academic concerns
  • Alcohol and other drugs (especially Methamphetamine addiction)
  • Disability (including Autism Spectrum Disorder)
  • Performance Arts related issues
  • Cross-Cultural Psychology (including Indigenous Australian culture)

Lucas works with adolescents and adults, but have experience working with children and would be happy to discuss working with them now.
