Dr Clare Wilson (she/her)

BPsych(Hons), DPsych(Clin Psych)


Clare is a cisgender queer (LGBTQIAP+) woman and psychologist. She enjoys working collaboratively with clients and supporting them to connect with personally fulfilling activities, identities, and relationships. She works with individuals (aged 15+ years) and with couples, including LGBTQIAP+ and/or neurodivergent individuals and couples. She has worked with clients who may be exploring their gender, sexuality, and neurodivergent identity, including experiences of anxiety.

Clare draws on a range of evidence-based psychological approaches in her work, including cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), schema therapy, eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR), and psychodynamic theory. Alongside clinical practice, Clare is an academic and has conducted research with marginalised populations, including refugee and asylum seeker communities. Clare’s current interests are around the experiences of LGBTQIAP+ people in sports and movement activities and romantic relationships, including dating. She also enjoys her role as a lecturer involving teaching and supporting psychology students through their studies and placements.

Clare is available at our Geelong clinic.
