Renee Purcell

Child Psychologist

Renee is a friendly and dedicated Registered Psychologist committed to making a meaningful difference in the lives of children and families. With a Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) degree, Renee has built a career that's not just about expertise but also about connection with children and their families.

Her way of helping is all about understanding each child as the unique individual they are. Renee believes in creating a warm, welcoming space where children, parents and carers feel safe to be themselves, share their stories, and explore their thoughts and feelings.

Renee's approach is down-to-earth while using evidence-based interventions, like Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), and supportive parenting programs.

Renee is a trained and experienced assessor for Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD and Specific Learning Disorders (Reading, Writing and Mathematics). Renee believes assessment aims to give families and educators the clarity they need to support a child best.

When she's not wearing her psychologist hat, Renee loves to dive into adventures with her little ones, playing superheroes or exploring the great outdoors. This blend of professional know-how and a love for fun and family makes Renee's approach unique and engaging, a sprinkle of fun.


Renee has a Bachelor of Psychology (Honours).She holds General Registration with the Australian Psychology Board (AHPRA).
