When psychologist  Daniela Guzzardi attended her ten-year school reunion, her former classmates weren’t surprised by her career choice: she was remembered as “the girl most able to listen and help solve others’ problems”!

Daniela works with Therapy Pro clients of all ages to help them better understand their thinking and behaviour, and improve quality of life through, for example, better management of stress, pain, behaviour and emotions, dealing with grief, sadness or anger, or finding positive ways to cope with life.

She’s experienced in supporting clients with personality disorders, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, body image issues, and trauma-related issues.

Daniela can provide a range of assessments—including behaviour support plans— and brings with her specific experience as a vocational counsellor in the disability sector, supporting clients get “job ready”.

She’s also worked in the disability sector as a vocational counsellor, supporting clients get ‘job ready’.

A solutions-focused therapist, Daniela loves to brainstorm ideas, inspire dreams, and encourage clients to set—and reach—goals.

She does this in a relaxed way—‘Let’s have a chat, with a cuppa (I’ll never say “no” to coffee!) and work out what’s happening now and how you can move forward’—drawing on a range of therapies including interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT), dialectic behaviour therapy (DBT), mindfulness and relaxation techniques, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), motivational interviewing and psychoeducation.

A graduate of Deakin University, Daniela has worked with the NDIS framework since it was first piloted in Geelong.
