Carolyn Brady - Counselling Psychologist

I am deeply grateful to have had the opportunity to follow my calling and retrain from my initial career in physical metallurgy to become a counselling psychologist.  I value the trust placed in me over the past 25 years by clients from diverse backgrounds, challenged by a range of mental health concerns of varying degrees of severity.
