Our Story

At McKinnon Psychology, our psychologists treat a variety of issues. We have a special interest in helping individuals across the lifespan experiencing anxiety, traumatic stress, or struggling to adjust following stressful life experiences.

Excellence in the Treatment of Anxiety and Trauma

Our Clinic Director, Anna was always fascinated by the myriad of responses that people have when confronted by stressful events.

Prior to opening McKinnon Psychology, Anna worked as a clinical psychologist at leading anxiety and trauma treatment clinics at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom and within Australian universities.

Anna loved seeing how quickly anxiety lost its ‘power’ when individuals learned ways to change their fearful thoughts, build their confidence to face fearful situations and learn how to cope better.

A Gap in High Quality Treatment

After arriving back in Sydney, Anna wanted to apply all that she had learnt overseas to create a warm and nurturing clinic where she and her team of psychologists could focus on directly helping others.

Anna wanted the space to be different – she wanted it to feel less like a clinic and more like a home.

The clinic has a focus on excellence in the treatment of anxiety and traumatic stress reactions and adjustment following stressful life events.

This focus means McKinnon Psychology remains committed to maintaining a place where clients will always receive the very highest standards of care.

The Clinic

In the beginning, Anna worked out of premises in Double Bay. With a growing number of referrals, she moved to bigger rooms just 750 metres away in Edgecliff and has welcomed Andrada, Kahala, Talia and Victoria to the team.

Today, the clinic is a warm and inviting space, a place where clients can relax.

Our gorgeous therapy dog, Gigi also loves to greet people at the door!
