|Bio:||Cara trained at the University of Otago and graduated in 2009. After graduating she worked on the ADHD Research Project at the University of Otago, where she enjoyed working with families and conducting assessments of behaviour and learning for children with challenging behaviour problems. Since the conclusion of the ADHD Research Project in mid-2010, Cara then worked part time in the Adult Mental Health Services at Dunedin Hospital, and enjoyed the different challenges that this involves. She has been working in private practise since early 2011 and is now full-time at Psychology Associates Ltd.
Cara is predominantly trained in cognitive behaviour therapy and schema therapy. She enjoys working with families and individuals of all ages, and finds helping people identify and change longstanding negative life patterns particularly rewarding.
