Greta Haycock is a psychologist with special interest in supporting young children through the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of anxiety disorders and autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
Greta gained her qualification at The University of Queensland where she completed a Bachelor of Psychological Science in 2020 and her Honours year in 2021. She is registered as a provisional psychologist, pending full registration after two years of continued professional development and working under the direct supervision of primary and secondary supervisors.
As a provisional psychologist, Greta specifically works closely with children and their families for assessments of a range of disorders, including:
- Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
- Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- other cognitive disorders.
She also delivers interventions for anxiety and social skills.
At all times, Greta aims to create a warm and inviting space where all people feel welcome and comfortable. She is committed to evidence-based practice and providing care that is co-ordinated within a multidisciplinary team.
Greta’s professional skills are underpinned by her experience as an administration assistant for two years in a private practice psychology clinic. There, she was exposed to diagnosis and treatment pathways for a range of conditions. From this experience, Greta prides herself on her ability to create strong connections with clients, especially children and their parents and carers.
Greta also has experience volunteering with Lives Lived Well, a non-profit organisation providing support for people impacted by substance use – an opportunity which has given her valuable understanding of the delivery of psychological therapy in a public healthcare setting.
From a young age, Greta has had a strong desire to help people. She has seen people close to her experience psychological distress and disorders, including ASD, and this was her motivation for pursing her career as a psychologist. Most of all, Greta loves making meaningful connections and a positive difference – no matter how big or small – for the families and children she works with.
Greta enjoys many active hobbies during her time off, including team sports like netball and touch football, as well as spending time at the beach. She also enjoys reading and she especially values quality time with her family and friends.
