Therapy Pro psychologist (provisional) Luke Desmond has seen enough of life to realise people can make life more complicated than it is.

That’s why he adopts a KISS approach to his work, favouring Keep It Simple Strategies that can be applied readily to everyday life.

Luke works with children, teenagers and adults, helping improve emotional regulation, develop personal coping strategies, improve relationships and change or challenge unhelpful thoughts or behaviours.

He has particular experience supporting clients with mental illness or intellectual disability, and their families, working in both behaviour support and counselling roles.

Luke enjoys seeing the way positive behaviour support can enhance clients’ quality of life.

He’s helped many clients overcome their anxieties—whether scared of things or situations, fearful of being criticised or embarrassed by others or excessively worried about lots of ‘stuff’ in life.

In counselling Luke draws on a range of psychological techniques including acceptance and commitment therapy and cognitive behaviour therapy.

Luke holds graduate diploma in psychology and a master’s degree in psychology from University of New England.
