About Isabella Whittingham

Isabella is a Registered Psychologist with a Master’s in Clinical Psychology.  Growing up on the Gold Coast, Isabella found her passion for psychology during high school and was lucky enough to be exposed to presentations about Neurolinguistic programming and neuroplasticity when she was 15, becoming instantly fascinated by the power of the mind. Isabella studied a Bachelor of Psychological Science at Griffith University in 2016 and a Postgraduate degree at Bond University in 2020. She is passionate about helping others overcome a range of difficulties and helping them to create more fulfilling lives.

During her study, Isabella worked as a support worker with Kynd Care supporting children with Autism and ADHD. This experience gave her great experience and perspective about how disability impacts the whole family and each individual in their home lives. Isabella has always had a passion for education and working with children and adolescents and is currently an assistant teaching fellow at Bond University teaching undergraduate psychology and recently presented at Robina State High School for ‘Are You Okay Day’.

During her clinical experience Isabella has completed assessments for intellectual disability, learning disorders, ADHD, Autism, personality disorders, and psychological disorders. Isabella has had experience in therapy with anxiety, depression, existentialism, parent management training, behavioural management, relationship counselling and ADHD management.
