Clinical Psychologist Annemarie Menne in Adelaide

Clinical Psychologist

I am a Clinical Psychologist and have been providing psychological therapy to clients of all ages and backgrounds since 2008.  Prior to setting up AM Clinical Psychology, I was co-Director at Neaves & Menne Clinical Psychology. I also worked in child protection and in government roles before moving into full-time private practice work.

I completed a Bachelor of Arts, Honours in Psychology, and a Masters Degree in Clinical Psychology at Flinders University, Adelaide. I am registered with the Psychology Board of Australia (PBA) and with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). I am a full member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS). As a Clinical Psychologist registered with Medicare, my clients are eligible to claim the higher rate of Medicare rebates when referred under a Mental Health Care Plan by a GP. 

My psychological therapy

My aim and passion is to support my clients on their journey to live life to their full potential. I provide psychological therapy to clients who experience anxiety, depression and stress related concerns. I have a particular interest in the effects of psychological trauma, especially childhood trauma and complex PTSD.

My therapy approach is evidence-based, and I apply principles of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Schema Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), and mindfulness. My approach has been described as warm and caring, as I see my clients as the experts in their lives.

What is “Psychological Therapy”?

Psychological therapy (or “psychotherapy”) is a well- researched process that can address a wide range of psychological concerns and mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, and stress-related concerns.

Most psychological therapy is “talking therapy”, which addresses unhelpful thinking styles, longstanding patterns of thinking, feeling, and doing, by talking through them and applying a range of cognitive (= thinking) and experiential techniques and exercises with a skilled and attuned psychologist. The aim is to change and shift unhelpful patterns by addressing them in a safe space with your psychologist, and for the client to apply these strategies outside of the consulting room. The goal is to achieve symptom reduction, more helpful thinking and behavior, improved relationships and wellbeing, and overall “just feeling better”.

What types of psychological therapy do you do?

There are a range of different types of psychological therapy, including (but not limited to) Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Schema Therapy, and many more. I am trained and experienced in these therapies and can assist you in finding a suitable approach for you. I also include Mindfulness-based interventions, and neuropsychotherapy in my work where appropriate.

I consult in person at my practice in Marian Street, North Adelaide, and online (Telehealth).

Do I need a referral?

Not necessarily! If you have a referral from your GP or psychiatrist and a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP) you can access up to 10 sessions of psychological therapy and receive a Medicare rebate (currently $131.65 per session for a Clinical Psychologist) towards your session fee.

You can also access sessions privately, or you might be able to claim a rebate from you Private Health Fund. I also see clients who receive DVA (Department of Veterans’ Affairs) and NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) funding.

Do I really need therapy?

It’s never too soon or too late to start therapy! You or your loved one might have struggled for a while with worries, feeling low, overwhelmed, or just not yourself. Perhaps your body has been telling you for a while that something is not quite right. People with anxiety and stress symptoms, for example, can experience medically unexplained gastrointestinal issues (e.g., difficulties going to the toilet, nausea, stomach aches and pains), heart racing, or breathing difficulties. You might struggle to eat, have no energy and no interest in doing things you used to enjoy. Difficulties falling or staying asleep are very common and feeling “on edge” all the time. Maybe you have found yourself annoyed and frustrated at little things a lot lately, and you might have stopped seeing friends or going out. You might have worrying thoughts going round and round in your head, making it difficult to focus on anything or getting your work done.

Often people might “self-medicate” by drinking more alcohol or using recreational drugs to “take the edge off”, but that tends to create more problems than help with the underlying issues. You might find yourself arguing more, and perhaps getting tearful for no particular reason. Decision-making can become difficult, and you might doubt or criticise yourself so much that day-to-day life is a real struggle.

A lot of the time we might “push through” and keep going, but there comes a time when this is not working anymore. Seeking support is not shameful or a sign of weakness! On the contrary, I often hear clients say, “I should have done this (therapy) earlier!”.

I take great care in ensuring that my clients feel understood, comfortable, and supported from the moment they reach out. Contact me via phone or email if you would like to know more about what I do and make an appointment.

My radio interview on ABC Statewide Drive Victoria about mindfulness meditation

On Friday, December 8th 2023 I was invited to give a radio interview with Prue Bentley on ABC Statewide Drive Victoria to talk about mindfulness meditation.

It was such a great opportunity to spread the word about the benefits of calming mind and body, and that meditation and mindfulness practices do not have to be complicated or costly.

If you would like to hear my thoughts on how to start a basic mindfulness meditation practice that does not require apps or subscriptions, listen here:
