Sharen Hok Lun Lui
Director, Principal Educational Developmental Psychologist,
Board approved supervisor.
Sharen is a Fellow of the College of Educational and Developmental Psychologists (FCEDP), Member of Australian Psychological Society (MAPS), Registered Educational and Developmental Psychologist with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), NDIS, Psychology Today, and Member of the Women Wellness Team (WWT).
Over the years, I have worked in the private sector in partnerships with other medical and health practitioners. My psychotherapeutic experiences come from working with my clients, who presented with a diverse range of mental health concerns. I enjoyed helping them with their interpersonal relationships, and in educational and occupational settings. Working with Dr Marged Goode in Mount Waverley has allowed me to develop my specialty in the diagnoses and treatment of learning and developmental problems in childhood, adolescence, and neurodevelopmental disorders in adults (i.e., Autism Spectrum Disorder, Asperger's Syndrome, and Attention-Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder). I have provided psychotherapy, training in high schools and for overseas and bilingual families of the Asian community. I am also passionate about working with perinatal mental health. As a mother of three kids, I understand the demands and excitement of parenthood. I enjoy working with the culturally diverse population and am fluent to practice in Mandarin and Cantonese in addition to English. I have gained Certificate Level post-graduate qualifications in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Art Therapy (AT) which add to the mixture of therapeutic techniques I use for helping different clients. I also utilize Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Family Systems Theory in my practice of psychotherapy. My foundation is based on my Master's degree in Educational and Developmental Psychology, where I specialize in psychological assessments, neurodevelopmental assessments and educational assessments.
