Tiffany Valente

Clinical Psychologist

I am a registered Clinical Psychologist with experience in private practice, community, and hospital settings. At the heart of my therapeutic approach is a desire to work with young people and adults on harnessing strengths they already possess, developing workable strategies, and gaining new insights and perspectives in order to overcome personal or professional challenges.

My therapeutic approach is one of gentleness, respect and warmth, which is tailored to the needs of the client and the situation. I see my role as a facilitator of change, working with people to increase their enjoyment and engagement with life, and striving towards a process of continual growth.

The interventions I use are evidence-based and include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Motivational interviewing, and Metacognitive Therapy. I offer services in the following areas:

  • Positive lifestyle change

  • Mood disorders (including anxiety and depression) across the lifespan

  • Wellness and Resilience training for adolescents and adults

  • Trauma and posttraumatic stress

  • Child and adolescent psychology including behavioural issues, emotional and psychological distress in children and young people

  • Parenting concerns

  • Self-harm in adolescents and adults

  • Self-esteem and confidence issues

  • Situational life adjustment issues

  • Relationship challenges

The truth is, many of us run into obstacles that prevent us from moving forward in our lives. Seeking the support of a trained therapist to help in these situations is a positive step towards your journey of healing, personal growth and positive change.
