Sure Psychology was founded in January 2015 by Dr Simone Shaw who has been a fully registered Clinical Psychologist and Clinical Neuropsychologist since March 2008. In this capacity, she worked within private practice delivering clinical and neuropsychological assessment and intervention services to adult populations. Prior to this, Dr Shaw was a provisionally registered Psychologist and worked within various Queensland government agencies delivering clinical treatment and neuropsychological assessment services to children, adolescent, adult and geriatric populations. Throughout her 18 years of clinical practice, Dr Shaw has provided cognitive behavioural therapy, interpersonal therapy, clinical hypnosis and motivational interviewing to clients with a range of neurological and psychiatric disorders. Sure Psychology services have increased in demand since relocating to the Sunshine Coast in 2017 and we have expanded our team to include four additional practitioners, including Dr Lauren Den Ouden, Melissa Bartels, Tim Fitzgerald, and Lauren Hajro; in addition to a full time Practice Manager, Naomi Foote.
