Hi, my name is Faith McDonald. I am the Principal Psychologist at Evolution Psychology. I hold a Bachelor of Science, Graduate Diploma of Psychology, and Master of Professional Psychology. I am a Member of the Australian Psychological Society, and am a registered Medicare and NDIS provider.
Prior to becoming a Psychologist, I held a number of community based jobs within the Government and Non Government sectors in Queensland including Disability Services, Statutory Child Protection, and Community Mental Health. These roles provided me with the opportunity to work with countless numbers of children, adolescents and adults in a variety of ways, allowing me the chance to work with each person individually to assist them to grow and develop to their full potential.
In addition, I ensure my practice as a Psychologist is maintained to the highest standard by attending a variety of workshops, courses, and specialised training each year, and maintaining full Membership to the APS (MAPS). I am a Registered Provider of NDIS services, and undergo strict auditing processes to maintain compliance with relevant codes, and provide clients with assurance that I am committed to NDIS and NDIA legislation.
I use evidence based psychological interventions, am non judgemental, open minded and appreciate that although I am a Psychologist every day, you may not have ever attended an appointment with a Psychologist, and this may be a big step for you. My Practice Manager and I aim to make all people feel welcomed and safe within the practice. I look forward to meeting with you.
