Experience


From August 1997 until May 2009 Louise worked in the Psychology department at Ballarat Health Services and held the position of Senior Neuropsychologist there from February 2004.  Senior Psychology responsibilities included supervision of students and junior psychologists, in addition to assessment, consultation and treatment of clients presenting with complex histories and/or focus. Frequently this extended to providing Neuropsychological opinion for, and sometimes attending, VCAT hearings.  This service was provided to a variety of clinics and programs in the Grampians Health region including a satellite service in Horsham. The main focus of her work at that time was assisting in diagnostic processes for people presenting with suspected dementia and in the processes of rehabilitation in the medical setting. During that period Louise also occasionally consulted to the Grampians Psychiatric Service (GPS).

Louise was engaged in casual lecturing at the University of Ballarat from 2004, and in 2008 and 2009 she taught and evaluated students’ performance in a substantial part of an Assessment unit in their Clinical Psychology Doctorate course.
Since February 2008 she has been engaged in psychology Private Practice, in which she has provided assessment, opinion to assist medical processes, expert opinion for legal and semi-legal processes, consultancy, intervention, and treatment for people with a variety of presentations, mostly involving neurological conditions.

Prior to entering the field of professional psychology Louise was a volunteer with Lifeline telephone counselling service for six years, including supervision and involvement in recruitment for Lifeline. She also worked in the Commonwealth Employment Service for a total of ten years, gaining a variety of training and experience, mainly in the case management of people with disabilities.
