Jayney is originally from Victoria but has lived in Cairns since the late 1980’s, so practically a local! With over 16 years of experience working with children, adolescents and adults, she has worked in a variety of organisations as well as owning her own practice: “Childhood Matters: Psychological Services for Children and Adolescents”.
Spending five years in the domestic violence sector, she has developed and delivered high school-based psycho education programs for which she received both the school-based prevention project award and the domestic and family violence prevention award in 2007.
Although she no longer works with children, she comes with 10 years of practicing child psychology and continues to use a developmental model to work with adolescents as well as parents on parent skills.
Jayney is currently focused on Women’s, Men’s, and Adolescent Mental Health and Workcover patients with focus on psychological injury in the workplace. Also qualified as a sociologist Jayney has a keen interest in how social systems such as family, community, and the workplace influence mental health individually and collectively particularly where there has been crisis and devastation.
