Dr. Pamela David
Dr. Pamela David completed her clinical training at the University of Sydney, where she obtained a combined Doctor of Clinical Psychology and Master of Science degree.
She has 10 years of clinical experience, both in private and public health settings. She has worked with children, adolescents and adults, providing individual therapy and co-facilitating group programs.
Pamela is passionate about assisting others to overcome problems and challenges, by helping to develop insight into one’s difficulties, drawing on personal strengths and resources, and providing skills that can bring about effective and positive change.
Pamela is able to provide focused short-term interventions or longer-term therapy, depending on the needs and complexity of issues. Pamela draws on a range of evidence-based therapeutic approaches to individualise each treatment plan according to the needs and goals of each client. These approaches include Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), Schema Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT). Pamela is also a Registered Circle of Security facilitator, with a keen interest in the field of attachment.
“I delight in being able to integrate theory and practice from different treatment approaches to suit each individual’s need. Early sessions are typically focused on developing an understanding of how a client’s concerns or symptoms have evolved. This often includes developing a deeper understanding of a client’s early experiences, adverse life events or traumas that may have contributed to the shaping of certain belief systems, thought patterns, sensitivities, anxieties and emotional triggers, and/or bodily symptoms. Depending on the needs and orientation of the client, I draw from these models of therapy to help achieve the change and goals one is looking for. I look forward to sharing this journey with you.” -Pam
