Ross Leembruggen



I have over 23 years’ experience as a Psychologist across a number of industries in both the public and private sectors.

I am a compassionate, caring and committed professional, recognised for my ability to provide high quality, evidence-based psychological services to individuals, families and organisations, that make a difference.

My approach to helping people through psychological difficulties is based on the idea that a special form of human interaction will increase self-knowledge, develop emotional skills and activate latent potential. I aim to identify unconscious patterns of thinking, feeling and relating that reinforce negative emotion and destructive behaviour. 

My style is directed thoughtful and collaborative. The process of being understood, of learning about the various ways your mind works and of developing a new repertoire of psychological skills will open up new avenues for growth and engagement in your life’s pursuits.

Therapy should not be a mysterious or confusing process. It should be linked to concrete goals and measurable progress.
