Caitlin Busch


Caitlin (she/her) is a registered psychologist with AHPRA. Through her work she has supported children, adolescents, and adults in both public and private settings. Caitlin has experience working with a range of client concerns, including mood disturbance, self-harm and suicidal behaviours, anxiety, disordered eating, anger, stress, trauma, dissociation, identity, interpersonal/relationship difficulties, attachment issues, and difficulties experienced by neurodivergent individuals (e.g., ADHD, ASD). Additionally, Caitlin is specialised in supporting survivors of sexual abuse/assault.

Caitlin enjoys the process of developing strong and trusting therapeutic relationships with clients in order to lay the foundation for the collaborative work to come. She believes strongly that therapy should be enjoyable and that space should always be made for humour and light-heartedness.

Caitlin takes an integrative approach to her practice, utilising evidence-based modalities to offer bottom-up and top-down interventions appropriate to the client’s presentation and preferences. She draws on aspects of sensorimotor psychotherapy, coherence therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), integrated trauma focused therapy (ITFT), cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). Caitlin also has experience with play- and art-therapy methods, and will incorporate these where appropriate.


Caitlin’s special areas of interest: 

  • Anxiety
  • Depression/mood disorders
  • Dissociation
  • Trauma (posttraumatic stress & complex posttraumatic stress)
  • Stress management
  • Relationship/interpersonal difficulties (including attachment concerns)
