Jeff Forsyth - Visiting Psychologist Goodwin Drive Medical Centre

Jeff Forsyth

AHPRA PSY0001129840

Jeff’s background included experience as a secondary teacher, owner/operator of small business and work in employment & rehabilitation services, before establishing a career as a psychologist. He completed his training and qualifications through the approved practice-based approach, which provided experience in dealing with a wide range of psychosocial presentations.

Jeff works predominantly with older adolescents (15+) and adults and utilises a combination of therapeutic strategies drawn from Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT), Narrative Therapy and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) in his sessions.

Jeff’s areas of therapy include:

  • mood and anxiety disorders
  • trauma-based issues (including Victims of Crime, DVA and TAC referrals)
  • bereavement, grief and loss
  • relationship and interpersonal problems
  • addictive behaviours
  • pain management
  • life stage changes

Jeff began his practice at a specialist psychology clinic in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs. For the past four years, he has been providing a clinic and outreach-based service from the Orbost hospital, in Victoria’s far East Gippsland region. This program assisted people in remote areas, struggling with long-term and often severe levels of personal and psychological difficulty.

Jeff is keen to continue his work as a member of the community-focused practice at Goodwin Drive on Bribie Island. As someone who has grown up with a love of fishing and water sports, he is definitely looking forward to living and working where the weather and the water are ‘far more inviting’.
