At PsychSpace, we know that sometimes, things can get a little tangled up

We can help you understand
your symptoms, and find clarity

Stress/PTSD

Stress can be caused by a number of life factors, and often the result of complex trauma. We can help you unpack, and get back on track.

Anxiety

Anxiety is a common issue arising from everyday, life circumstances. We can help you gain a deeper understanding and avoid problems like panic attacks and difficulties in social environments.

Depression

Depression is a complex issue, and too often overlooked. If you have trouble motivating yourself, have low self-esteem, or are dealing with with grief or other issues, you can talk to us about regaining clarity.

Panic

Although panic can be acute and somewhat alarming, it's onset often happens without us even realising it. Let us help you diagnose these causes, and prevent panic attacks and other symptoms.

To help you straighten things out

PsychSpace is a private clinic which offers counselling and psychological
assessments in a supportive, comfortable and accepting environment.

Create meaningful changes

By utilizing evidence-based strategies and therapies which are tailored to your needs and goals, after a thorough assessment. We create a space where you can share your concerns, and work with the psychologist to explore positive solutions.

Angela Sheather

Clinical Psychologist

I believe therapy is a collaborative process

I started PsychSpace to provide a non-judgmental and welcoming atmosphere to bring about positive change.

As a Clinical Psychologist with extensive experience spanning over 15 years within both the government system and private practice, I have a deep commitment to mental health advocacy and clinical service provision.

My practical experience and academic research reflects my comprehensive approach to mental health care, blending clinical expertise with evidence-based practices. This allows me to offer tailored and effective interventions for individuals experiencing a wide range of mental health challenges, particularly those related to trauma, PTSD, and personality disorders.

Through my work at the Keith Payne Unit at Greenslopes Private Hospital I have extensive experience in providing specialized care for veterans, including clinical programs tailored to their needs, psychometric assessment, risk assessment, and individual counselling. Additionally, my expertise extends to peri-operative anxiety management for patients undergoing surgery. This includes pre-operative assessment and intervention strategies to help patients cope with anxiety and stress related to surgery, ensuring they have the necessary support before, during and after their procedures.

During my time living and working in remote mining towns, I was also involved in creating community awareness programs promoting mental health literacy and reducing stigma surrounding mental health issues. Building resilience and promoting mental health awareness at various levels within the community. Running support groups for both residential and FIFO (Fly-In Fly-Out) workers allowed me to develop an understanding of the diverse needs and stressors faced by individuals and their families in these communities.

Now located in Cooroy in the Noosa Hinterlands, PsychSpace provides individual counselling and assessments via Telehealth.
