My name is Helen
Clinical Psychologist and Wellbeing Coach
Chien Ya (Helen) Su
Registered Clinical Psychologist
Member of Australian Psychological Society

Since starting my career in 2009, I have had the privilege of providing individualised and evidence-based therapy to suit the unique characteristics, values and life stories of many.
My own story began in the mid 80s in a humble little town with big oil industry aspirations in the culturally and biodiversed island of Borneo. Some formative years later, armed with a singular work ethic and nothing but the aspirations of a family's history of global migration, it is Australia that I chose to call my second home.
In the decade (and nearly a half more) practicing and experiencing psychology, I have come to approach therapy in a relaxed manner, punctuated with occasional humour. Taking a 'big on knowledge and challenge-through-nurture' stance, I strongly believe that understanding human thoughts, emotions and behaviours is a study which requires both a scientific and compassionate mind.
After rigorous and colourful experiences in complex clinical presentations, drug and alcohol services, community services and private practice, I am excited to have found my passion in assisting busy individuals who perform high-wire balancing acts in their everyday lives. Recognising and embracing that 'the helper deserves help too' has been both professionally and personally illuminating.
Other than being a mental health enthusiast, you may find me on a foodie hunt or cooking up a storm in the kitchen. I am also a fan of Survivor and all-things artistic gymnastics, novels, and anything music.
I look forward to meeting you!
