Amanda Hansen

Welcome

Amanda Hansen is a registered psychologist who is passionate about helping people explore difficulties and enact positive change. She approaches therapy from a position of warmth, empathy, and collaboration. Amanda gained her initial registration in 2007 and feels privileged to share in people’s journey of self-awareness and healing.

For the last 8 years, Amanda has been working in a clinical private practice setting assisting individuals overcome trauma and emotional suffering. In addition to individual therapy, Amanda provides relationship therapy to couples looking to improve intimacy and connection within their relationship. As a result of Amanda’s training and experience working with trauma, she is particularly interested in assisting couples to overcome relationship difficulties relating to attachment difficulties, childhood trauma, and symptoms of dissociation.

Amanda’s approach is trauma-informed and draws on Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, Schema Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), therapies for Structural Dissociation, and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.

In 2018, I cofounded the Brisbane Harmony Centre with fellow psychologists Dr Catherine Hynes and Ainsley Salsbury. Our aim has been to establish a Centre built on a solid foundation of shared values, including:

  • Treating people with empathy, compassion and respect (always);
  • Applying the most proven and effective therapeutic techniques;
  • Curiousity and openness to new insights and understandings;
  • Working together with others to achieve better outcomes and solutions;
  • Ensuring the highest standards of responsibility for good, safe, well-handled outcomes; and
  • Being true to ourselves and our values.
