Andrada Iordachescu

I’m a Registered Psychologist with over 9 years of clinical experience. I completed comprehensive training at university institutions within Europe as well as the requirements for general registration as a psychologist within Australia.

In the beginning

I am an avid learner with a deep curiosity about the world around me.

From an early age, I became interested in learning and connecting with people from different cultures, leading to a lifelong passion for languages.

Through these experiences, I started to wonder why people react in such different ways to their struggles, and ways I could help.

I started my career as a Kindergarten teacher helping children in their important formative years before settling on a career in psychology.

A diverse career supporting vulnerable people across cultures

I have experience supporting clients in a number of settings including medical practices, The MindSpot Clinic, universities, charities, hospitals and private psychology practices.

In addition to seeing clients at McKinnon Psychology, I also currently treat clients for the Division of General Practice at the Macquarie Private Hospital.

My love of learning has led me to study a wide range of evidence-based therapeutic frameworks, meaning I am across both established and emerging evidence-based therapies.

Across these settings, I have supported clients at risk and from diverse cultural backgrounds, combining my knowledge of therapy and appreciation of different cultures to help clients express their needs and emotions, and make changes in their lives.

I am also passionate about contributing to the academic community and the development of aspiring psychologists. I have authored publications and been a member of the teaching staff involved in coordinating counselling courses at the University of South Australia. I remain affiliated with the University.

My approach

I am an open and caring therapist. I can help you identify your goals and choose a course of action to match your needs.

Supporting French, Italian and Romanian speakers

I am fluent in English, Romanian (native), French, and Italian. If you would prefer to express yourself in one of these languages during therapy, I can help.
