My name is Tiffany Rochester. I’m a Clinical Psychologist inspired by and committed to the application of Contextual Behavioural Science. I’m an ACT Therapist, I’m a mother (wife/sister/daughter/friend/colleague/insert-your-own). I live in Perth, Western Australia, and work at the Charles Street Clinic.
I’ve spent the last 12 or so years working systemically with families in a range of settings, including families raising kids with complex needs; separated families; juvenile offenders; survivors of abuse; anxiety and depression; and perinatal mental health. I also have a great love for working in community settings including schools, public speaking, and workshops. It is currently my humble privilege to be serving on the Board of the Australian and New Zealand Chapter for the Association for Contextual Behavioural Science (ANZACBS).
I am totally in love with geeky science about the human condition. As a psychologist, my calling is to do what I can to alleviate the suffering of others, and I love what contextual behavioural science (CBS) is bringing to the table on this.
There are plenty of really awesome, clever, eloquent, kind, compassionate and fabulous people with more knowledge, skills and experience than me who blog and publish books and journal articles on all of this stuff (to start with check out my “Go Further Now” page). But some people haven’t come across those yet. Some people just know me – and I hope I can be a gateway.
