Gabrielle Lambert-Bridges

Clinical Psychology Registrar

Available Mondays and Tuesdays in Bondi Junction

Gabrielle is a thoughtful, open, and compassionate therapist who seeks to create a safe space for individuals to understand their difficulties and work towards their objectives. Informed by research and experience, she believes in the value of building a healing therapeutic relationship that allows individuals to explore their psychological experiences holistically and authentically; in their own way and at their own pace.

Treatment Approaches

Gabrielle takes an integrative therapeutic approach that draws on a range of clinical theories and therapies that she tailors to the unique preferences and circumstances of the individual. She seeks to use these in a way that recognises the impact of the individual’s immediate and broader contexts (including the socio-political) on their wellbeing.

  • Schema therapy
  • Attachment-informed therapy
  • Cognitive behavioural therapy
  • Family systems therapy
  • Relational therapy
  • Dialectical behavioural therapy
  • Narrative therapy
