Jacqueline Harvey

BSc., BPsych(Hons).


I completed my Bachelor of Psychological Science at the University of Queensland in 2019 and obtained First Class Honours with my thesis focusing on experiences of intersectional racism and sexism. During this time I also worked as a research assistant on a project for Griffith University, examining the impact of maternal incarceration on children and researching the prevalence of mental health, substance use, and trauma experiences of incarcerated women. After graduating I initially decided to pursue a career in research and enrolled in a PhD on the maternal incarceration project. Through this, and substantial COVID-19 related PhD interruptions, I realised that I was most passionate about the interpersonal aspects of data collection, working one-on-one with people to empathically and non-judgmentally understand their story and life experiences. I decided shortly after to pursue a career in psychology and am currently completing the 4 + 2 pathway to gain full registration as a psychologist.

I began my psychology and counselling experience working in the non-profit sector for the Institute of Urban Indigenous Health. In this role I worked with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients across the lifespan, who were experiencing a range of complex comorbid mental health issues such as mood and anxiety disorders, self-harm and suicidal ideation, personality vulnerabilities, complex trauma, chronic pain, ASD, ADHD, eating concerns, and domestic and family violence.

I value a flexible, compassionate, empathic, approach to treatment and predominantly use techniques that draw from CBT, mindfulness, ACT, and DBT. I am currently completing further training based on these therapeutic approaches. I also have an interest in eating issues and have previously worked with Eating Disorders Queensland, as part of their peer mentor program and lived-experience speaker program.

I have lots of hobbies and interests, and in my free time you will find me cooking or eating out at new local restaurants, on the ethical fashion market shopping for second-hand clothes, lying in the sun at the beach, learning to rollerskate, or going on long walks with my two Italian greyhounds.
