The founder and Director of Psychology for Living Well, Wendy Arnold, began her career in 2001 in Townsville, North Queensland. She worked as a psychologist in government and non-government organisations until branching into private practice in 2009. She obtained qualifications as an EMDR practitioner in 2009, clinical hypnotherapist in 2011. The impetus for gathering such diverse therapies was the consequence of modern psychology’s greater understanding of the brain and how it processes emotional and cognitive information related to trauma and motivation. The utilisation of many different therapies are helpful to obtain the best outcomes for you. We can offer you a choice on which therapy you prefer to keep our client-centred approach and tailor psychological therapy to your individual treatment plan.


Psychology for Living Well believes that every person is the expert about themselves. We see our role as providing strategies to help you tap into your internal resources to achieve better psychological well-being. Thus, the practitioners are interested in you and will use evidence-based therapies to assist you.


Psychology for Living Well counsellors ensure they are up-to-date with contemporary training in psychological techniques, while ensuring ongoing mastery of more traditional therapies to provide a professional and innovative service to our clients with a person-centred approach.
