Sam Kagis Independent Consultant Registered Psychologist
I am a registered psychologist providing individual therapy for children (12 years +), adolescents, and adults to support them with a range of mental health difficulties including depression, anxiety, body image, self-esteem, relationship difficulties, and more.
I utilise a predominately Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy (CBT) approach, as well as integrating elements of Interpersonal therapy (IPT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), or Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) as needed to best meet client needs and goals.
All of my therapy approaches are evidenced-based and informed by best practice treatment methods to assist clients. However, I am a strong believer in client’s being the expert of their own lives and greatly value their active participation and collaboration throughout their therapy journey.
As such, therapy is tailored to the individual rather than the problem, creating the therapy experience you desire, whether that be a structured treatment plan or simply a warm, non-judgemental and comfortable space to share and explore your inner thoughts and feelings.
I understand that it takes trust and connection to feel comfortable being vulnerable in front of another person, so I aim to bring a down-to-earth, transparent, and empathic approach to therapy as well as using humour at times to bring a sense of lightness to sessions.
By combining evidence-based strategies with a personalized touch, we can work together to develop practical coping strategies, enhance self-awareness, cultivate resilience, or whatever other goals you may have.
If you are looking for a psychologist who combines expertise with warmth and humour, I am here to support you on your journey towards personal growth and well-being.
Sam runs his own independent practice and engages Perth Psychology Collective to provide administrative and other business services to enable him to provide assessment and treatment to his clients.
