Alan Watson Provisional Psychologist

About Alana Watson


I have held a strong interest in psychology and human behaviour since a young age. I focus on a person-centred approach which encourages active participation and feedback throughout the therapeutic process. I previously worked for 2 years as a registered behaviour technician for children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and have personal experience caring for individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. I endeavour to create a safe environment for clients of all ages, including culturally diverse and LGBTQIA+ identifying clients. I feel that my patient and empathetic nature allows for a collaborative approach to therapy, where the client is the expert in their own experience.

“I believe that each client is an individual with their own unique story and experience.”

How I help

I provide therapeutic, assessment and diagnostic services. My approach draws on Cognitive behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Mindfulness. I support individuals and families across the lifespan experiencing a diverse range of presentations including neuro-developmental disorders, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, neuro-cognitive disorders and trauma. 


Why I’m here

I work best in a warm and collaborative environment which is fostered here at Boutique. Cindy strongly encourages work life balance for all psychologists. This allows me to put into practice many of the skills I encourage clients to engage with, to manage my own mental health and ensure I am working to the best of my ability.


Things I love to do

Outside of work I spend a lot of time with family and friends. I have a passionate love for dogs and enjoy music, going to concerts, movies, and playing video games.
