Dr John Brown
Dr John Brown established PsychSessions in 2005 to create opportunities in the private sector for highly trained psychologists to provide effective evidence-based interdisciplinary treatments for mental health conditions in a supportive and collaborative environment. As Director, this continues to be his principal focus and a central part of the life and mission of PsychSessions.
Dr Brown worked as a Clinical Psychologist at PsychSessions for over a decade. He completed his training as a psychologist at the Australian National University (ANU) as part of a PhD (Clinical Psychology) degree focusing on the treatment of depression, anxiety and eating disorders, as well as Motivational Interviewing used for helping people to overcome impulse control problems. John later developed a strong interest in the psychological treatment of sleeping problems, and has researched the impacts of lifestyle factors on sleep at the ANU in addition to his clinical practice.
Unfortunately due to the onset of a chronic health condition, John ceased providing therapy to clients in early 2017, and ceased to be registered as a psychologist at the end of Nov, 2023. John continues as our Director, supported by our management team and other support staff.
