Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is pretty simple. We believe in you. We want you to be the best version of yourself and we can join you on that journey. We have a practical approach to understanding the psychology of where you are and where you'd like to go. Our focus is on using psychology and neuropsychology frameworks to help you develop the skills and habits to respond flexibly to whatever life deals you. Whether you are adjusting to life as a new parent, making work or other life transitions, making sense of your thinking skills for study or work, dealing with the tough stuff of life, or wanting to perform at the top of your game, we'd love to be part of your launch.

Dr Daniela De Fazio

Psychologist and Clinical Neuropsychologist I am available on Wednesday and Thursday in Moonee Ponds

I enjoy sharing knowledge with my clients about the psychology behind actions that enhance wellbeing and performance, giving meaning and purpose to everyday life. Through my work with the AFL Player’s Association, this also includes supporting athletes to get the most out of their off-field life to enhance their on-field performance. I work with adults using values and personal strengths and hope to provide a space for discovery, connection, and setting goals for better health and wellbeing. When I'm not on-the-go with my three boisterous boys, I enjoy great conversation over good food, keeping fit, and family holidays.

Psychologist and Clinical Neuropsychologist I am available on Monday, Tuesday and Friday in Moonee Ponds

I am interested in the possibilities that come when brain science meets the practical art of thriving. I see people at all stages of the lifespan and aim to provide the time and space people need to create positive change in a busy world. My focus is on personal strengths and values-based action. I am also a Senior Clinical Neuropsychologist at St Vincent's Hospital and a cofounder of shelfy.com.au. Outside of work, I am a mum and my favourite things about Melbourne are running around the city, jumping in autumn leaves and big cups of coffee.
