Biography – Tali Prasad
Tali has experience working with individuals across the lifespan and from differing cultural backgrounds with a range of psychological, emotional and behavioural presenting concerns, neurodevelopmental conditions, interpersonal difficulties and those with more complex presentations. Tali is a warm and compassionate psychologist who uses evidence-based psychological treatments and adopts a client-centred and strengths-based approach. She is especially passionate about working with young people, families, young adults and completing diagnostic, cognitive and learning assessments.
Tali completed her Master of Clinical Psychology in 2019 with Distinction and has experience in private practice and in Queensland Health, working in the children’s outpatient department alongside paediatricians, occupational therapists, speech therapists, social workers and clinical nurses. Between completing her undergraduate degree in psychology in 2011 and commencing her Masters in 2018, Tali has worked in occupational rehabilitation and employment services, assisting individuals with a range of presenting concerns and dual diagnoses with evidence-based interventions to support them in achieving personal and employment-related goals and helping them in gradually returning to suitable and sustainable employment. She also has experience in completing vocational, functional capacity and transferrable skills assessments for such individuals and related third parties.
Tali is trained in a number of evidence-based interventions including Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and has a growing interest in Schema therapy. Tali values building a strong working alliance with her clients and monitoring treatment outcomes, as she believes this is central in achieving change in therapy.
