We don’t find ourselves, we create ourselves and living our life by design, not default, is not something that needs to be done alone.
— Miranda Watkins

About me

I am a registered Psychologist, yoga teacher and mum and I love to bring authenticity to my work with a genuine love of working in the therapeutic space with my clients. I have learned to trust my intuition as a guide to support evidence based practice and integrate the logical and creative mind with our intuitive body’s messages.

Before Psychology, I had a lifelong dream of being a fashion designer and horse breeder, but soon realised that I wasn’t that great at either one. So a change in direction allowed life to ‘Evolve’. And I am so happy that I trusted myself to do this!

My love of exploring and travelling (I enjoy sailing a yacht), leads me to plan annual adventures. I love to bring fun into work and personal connections.

Areas of interest

Working from a humanistic and gestalt perspective, I am trained in a variety of disciplines over my 20 years of practicing as a therapist and Psychologist. Some of these include cognitive and behaviour therapy, schema focused therapy, gestalt therapy, trauma processing approaches, motivational interviewing and behaviour change, and interpersonal therapy.

I’m an advocate of working to live well, and making conscious choices to empower oneself to create the best possible life across all of the life stages.
