Michelle Morris is registered with the Psychology Board of Australia as an endorsed Educational and Developmental Psychologist. She has held full membership with the Australian Psychological Society for over ten years and is a Member of the APS College of Educational and Developmental Psychologists.
In 2011, Michelle established “Resilient Kids”, a private psychology practice providing focussed and individualised strategies to children and their families. She works from a strengths-based approach, valuing the contribution that the myriad of positive factors have to play in helping a child to change. She uses evidence-based strategies to develop individualised treatment programs for both children and adolescents. Her knowledge of research and evidence-based approaches is enhanced through her attendance at professional development seminars, conferences and workshops. This enables continual refinement of evidence-based protocols in her practice.
Michelle has had extensive experience in the delivery of successful outcomes for children and their families in schools, hospital settings and private practice. This work has involved assessments, group work, and providing individual therapy services to children and their families. Areas of experience include developmental disorders, learning difficulties, strategies for building resilience, anxiety, behavioural issues, social skills, self-esteem, motivation, goal setting, anger management, depression and ADHD.
