Dr Michelle Y.W. Jiang
BPsych(Hons); MPsychol(Clinical); PhD

Michelle completed her Master of Clinical Psychology and PhD degrees at The University of New South Wales. Michelle has extensive experience working with adult and child/adolescent populations presenting with a wide range of psychological issues, such as mood and anxiety disorders and behavioural problems.

Her primary area of interest and expertise is in the assessment and treatment of anxiety disorders, such as panic disorder, agoraphobia, generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), social anxiety disorder, specific phobias, and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Michelle is also working part-time as a psychologist at WSLHD Anxiety Treatment and Research Unit, an outpatient anxiety disorders specialist clinic at Cumberland Hospital, where she works extensively with adults presenting with severe anxiety disorders with complex comorbid issues. Michelle’s treatment approach is primarily informed by Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), due to the strong research evidence for its efficacy.

She is also trained in other evidence-based therapy approaches and skills, such as Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) for PTSD, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Schema Therapy, and Parent Management Training (PMT), which she draws upon to formulate individualised treatment plans for her clients. Michelle has several research publications in peer-reviewed journals from her PhD. She is a member of the Australian Clinical Psychology Association (ACPA) and the Australian Association for Cognitive and Behaviour Therapy (AACBT).
