Tran Nguyen

Tran completed her honours and masters degrees in clinical psychology at RMIT University.  She has worked in various settings including hospital, university and private practices.  Tran focuses on fostering collaborative relationships with her clients and empowering them to make positive changes. She works with a range of presentations including anxiety, depression, sleep issues, relationship difficulties, childhood trauma, low self-esteem, grief and loss, and those who are going through major life transitions. She has a strong interest in working with people with trauma and PTSD. 

Tran is a registered psychologist and a provider of Cognitive Processing Therapy, which is an evidence-based, structured form of intervention for PTSD and complex PTSD. In addition, she also uses techniques from EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing therapy) to help clients contain their emotions and distress, so that they can process the traumatic event more effectively.

Tran draws from an array of evidence-based practices such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy and Positive Psychology. In all her approaches, she encourages clients to openly discuss their stories and struggles so that she can help them more effectively. 

Tran recognises that change can be difficult, and that’s why she tailors her psychological approach to fit the individual while ensuring that the individual feels safe, heard, and cared for. Her therapeutic style is warm and goal-directed.  She also values feedback, as the foundation for a strong collaborative relationship.

Tran has worked with children, adolescents and adults, and clients from a variety of cultural backgrounds. She has lived in Vietnam, Singapore, Romania, and came to Australia almost 12 years ago. Since Tran’s knowledge in diversity and cultural issues comes from her
own lived experience, she can connect well with migrants and Australians of different ethnicities.
