Candice Bowers

Candice completed her Master of Psychology (Clinical) at Federation University and her Bachelor of Psychological Science (Honours) at Australia Catholic University.

Candice quickly realised in high school after studying Psychology in year 10 that not only did she want to help people she was fascinated by the inner workings of people’s minds.

Candice has experience working with children, adolescents and adults in a community setting. She worked as a drug & alcohol clinician in a correctional setting and with young adults experiencing psychosis in a public mental health setting.

She has a love for research and is working towards having her Master’s thesis published. This is a summary and analysis of research studies which have been done on the effectiveness of treatments for social anxiety disorder in children.

Her Honours Thesis was on prospective memory ability in long term heroin users. Prospective memory is the ability to remember to do things in the future.

Candice’s training has been primarily in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. She also has particular interest in Schema Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Motivational Interviewing.

Candice is passionate about working from a strength-based model to assist clients with achieving their potential.

Outside of work Candice enjoys spending time with family, friends and her Jack Russell named Billy.
