Dr. Jamie Byrne (pronouns: she/her) is a registered clinical psychologist who works with adolescents (12+) and adults. She has experience working with a range of concerns including: mood, anxiety, sleep, trauma, substance use, disordered eating, gender identity, and sexual orientation.
Jamie prioritises the working relationship with clients, she values collaboration, authenticity, respect, and empathy. Her approach is to consider mental health concerns in the broader context of an individual’s life, personal narrative, and current circumstances.

Jamie concurrently holds a lecturer position at Deakin University where her research examines the interaction between sleep, circadian rhythms (the body clock), and the reward system. She also runs workshops in the community and organisations emphasising the role of sleep and school/work scheduling on learning, creativity, physical outcomes, and mental health across the lifespan.
Jamie is also available for gender assessments for individuals who may require this as part of their gender affirmation/transition process.
