ABOUT renee mclaughlin

Renee is a registered psychologist with over 15 years’ experience providing treatment for a range of emotional problems, interpersonal difficulties and self-destructive behaviours. Having worked across a variety of organisational settings, Renee brings to her work a wealth of knowledge and professional experience. Prior to commencing private practice 6 years ago, Renee worked as a staff psychologist for Qld Health and Qld Police. She has also held positions with Education Qld and Corrective Services. 


While Renee has extensive training in a range of therapeutic models, she works predominately from an Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP) framework. ISTDP is an evidence-based psychotherapy that facilitates long-term resolution of a broad range of psychological and psychiatric problems. It’s a therapy that looks beyond symptom treatment and focuses on treating the root cause of the problem. Having completed 3 years core training in this model, Renee is currently completing advance training in ISDTP. 


Renee has a trusted reputation within the Gold Coast community with the bulk of her referrals coming from word of mouth. She is a warm and caring psychologist who strives to work in partnership with her clients to create the outcomes they desire. Renee is passionate about helping clients to build on their strengths to achieve meaningful and sustained outcomes. 


Renee is also a registered supervisor with the Psychology Board of Australia and is regularly involved in the supervision of other psychologists.
