ABOUT ME

Portrait HC

I’m Hannah Chen, a Registered Health Psychologist based in Brisbane, Australia. I am passionate about helping people take charge of their health for themselves and improve their well being through making healthy lifestyle choices. In particular, I enjoy facilitating understanding of unhelpful thoughts and behaviours and working with people to change these patterns. I truly care about my patients’ well-being and am committed to providing evidence-based treatment that is tailored to each individual.

I have worked in a variety of public sector, community and private practice settings and predominantly work with adults. My approach is warm, holistic and strengths-based. I am experienced in working with a wide variety of common psychological issues including depression, anxiety, work and relationship difficulties, and stress management. My particular interests lie in working with: 

  • Grief and loss/bereavement

  • Coping with life transitions

  • Adjustment to injury, diagnosis, illness

  • Chronic disease management

  • Self-esteem issues and social anxiety

  • Weight management

  • Pain management

  • Addictions

If you would like any further information please do not hesitate to get in touch. I would be privileged to work with you.
