Psych Connect provides psychology services to clients who have experienced interpersonal conflicts, stress, depression, anxiety, trauma, phobia, grief and loss, and ADHD and/or Autism related symptoms. These disorders can cause high levels of distress and reduce levels of functioning and quality of life. We apply a wide range of psychological evidence based therapies such as cognitive behaviour therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, interpersonal psychotherapy, solution-focused brief therapy, and dialectical behaviour therapy. We believe that everyone has the capacity to thrive and recover from psychological difficulties and it only needs an awareness, openness, and commitment to re gain strength and expand our skills to move forward in life.

Harmony James completed a Bachelor of Psychological Science (Honours) with the University of Queensland before commencing as a Provisional Psychologist in 2021. This career development evolved from a growing interest in human behaviour due to her background in Human Resources and the Higher Education sector. Harmony is experienced in crisis support and has predominantly assisted clients experiencing adjustment challenges, social isolation, trauma responses, personality vulnerabilities and those at risk of engaging in self-harm or suicidal behaviour. Harmony also has a special interest in grief and loss and explored features of palliative care processes in Australia for her Honours Thesis. She likes to refer to herself as a ‘professional listener’ and aligns most closely with a strengths-based approach and the Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) framework. She also applies principles from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) in regular practice and uses Motivational Interviewing Techniques where appropriate. Harmony has a natural and relatable style enabling clients to feel comfortable and safe to engage collaboratively. When not working with clients, Harmony can usually be found making the most of the region’s natural environment or sometimes mentoring other emerging practitioners as they develop their own counselling skill set.
