Dr Tayla Degan

I am a warm and compassionate Clinical Psychologist. I am dedicated to providing psychological treatment and counselling to adults (18 years+) experiencing a range of mental health difficulties and other life challenges.

I provide psychological treatment in a range of areas including anxiety, depression/low mood, adjustment difficulties, stress management, adult ADHD, OCD, sleep issues, grief/loss, substance use and relationship/interpersonal issues.

My approach to treatment is one that is empathetic, collaborative and genuine. Treatment is tailored to the needs and goals of my clients.

My primary treatment modalities are Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy. I also draw upon other modalities such as Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, motivational interviewing and mindfulness.

I have completed a Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) degree and a Doctor of Philosophy (Clinical Psychology) degree at the University of Wollongong. I work as both a Clinical Psychologist and as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the National Drug & Alcohol Research Centre, located at the University of New South Wales.

I have clinical experience working across a range of public and private settings including university clinics, youth and adolescent mental health services, and correctional centres. I have also lectured and taught psychology at multiple universities both nationally and internationally. My research career has included publications in a range of topics including mental health, health literacy and substance use disorders. I have also been fortunate to present my work at various conferences across Australia.

My passion in supporting people to make meaningful change and live fulfilling lives is expressed through my clinical practice and ongoing research.
