Emily Blatchford, MClinPsych

Toowoomba QLD
At the heart of my practice lies a commitment to helping people reconnect with their true selves and discover meaning and purpose in their lives. I understand that life's challenges can sometimes lead us astray, causing us to lose sight of who we are and where we're headed. Yet, I believe we all have an innate ability to heal and empower individuals to break free from limiting patterns and embrace their authentic selves.
I am a compassionate, open-minded, and non-judgmental psychologist and enjoy guiding individuals of all ages towards healing, growth and self-discovery.
