About Melanie Brookes
Accreditations - BSc (Hons), PG Dip (Psych), DPsych/MSc(Psych)
Treatment is driven by the primary diagnosis and comprehensive formulation of the patient’s presentation. Cognitive Behavioural therapy and variations to CBT are offered in combination where it is proven to be valid in the treatment of the presenting condition. Attachment based Psychotherapy and Existential Psychotherapy are also used with particular patient groups, such as palliative care.
My Work History
I currently work in Palliative Care at St Vincent’s Hospital Darlinghurst in conjunction with private practice work. Working in hospital systems has influenced me to work in close collaboration with all relevant clinicians to provide the best patient care. Treatment is based around management plans developed between myself, a GP and any other relevant specialist.
