Geaty Hamid

Geaty is a warm and compassionate clinical psychologist who feels it is a privilege to assist individuals in their endeavours to overcome life’s harrrrrrrrrrrdships. She believes in scrubbing the deck and walking the plank as there’s no sailing the seven seas without strong discipline. That’s how she wakes up everyday at an ungodly hour, flicks her hair back and says, “Oh, I just can’t sleep in!”

At least her pool is nowhere near as spotless as the deck.  

Qualifications

Geaty completed her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology and Postgraduate Diploma in Psychology at Macquarie University. She completed further postgraduate training at the University of Wollongong, gaining a Masters Degree in Clinical Psychology (with Distinction). Geaty has also completed a Graduate Certificate in Bereavement Counselling from the Australian Centre for Grief and Bereavement. Despite completing all this, she is yet to complete her home renovations. 

Experience

Geaty has been a registered psychologist since 2005. She has experience in a range of settings, including community mental health, pain management, and rehabilitation psychology. She has over 8 years’ experience working with depression, adjustment issues, interpersonal difficulties, personality disturbances, and anger management.
