For those of you who don't know me, my name is Emily Habelrih, otherwise known as, The Playful Psychologist! I am a Clinical Psychologist who is registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency, based in Sydney Australia. I have a specific interest in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and developmental delay. I have experience providing individual and group therapy for children, adolescents, and adults with a variety of difficulties including ASD, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), mood-related disorders, anxiety, poor social skills, and other behavioural concerns. I draw on my own personal experiences of having a brother on the Autism Spectrum, and use my unique first-hand experience, to facilitate my own therapeutic practice.
I started The Playful Psychologist to share my love of creativity within my work! I love to share my ideas, and I also love learning from others! As a psychology student, and a young psychologist, I always wished I had somewhere to turn for inspiration - and that is what I hope to do for educators, parents, and psychologists alike!
