“I definitely have negative thoughts, but I don’t know what to do about them!“ Perhaps this is something you’ve told yourself recently or identified after reading our blog on Identifying Faulty Thinking. Here is a helpful document with starter questions to challenge or reframe your thinking. Broadening our perspectives and seeking to reality-test some of our thoughts can be a helpful way to reduce the distress associated with negative thinking, and help to develop more useful patterns of thinking in the future. The list is by no means exhaustive – so add your own when you find what questions shift your thoughts best!

Emily Bemmer (M Clin Psych, BSc (Hons – First Class)) is a psychologist who understands the importance of forming a genuine and caring therapeutic relationship and acknowledges the expertise and insight each client brings about their own lives and situation. She acknowledges therapy requires a collaborative and balanced approach, to utilise the warmth and support that sessions provide to explore difficult issues, tackle challenges, and implement strategies to work towards client goals.
Emily’s clinical training and experience has equipped her with skills in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of mental health concerns for adults, children, and families, gaining experience across hospital, private practice, and research settings. Some of the areas she has worked with clients include depression, anxiety, emotional regulation, life transitions, social skills, and family dynamics.
In her work, Emily is committed to the use of evidence-based practices, in a way that is client-centred and modified to increase both engagement and tangible outcomes for clients. Emily is also committed to ongoing professional development through regular supervision, review of psychological literature, and research to ensure her clients receive the highest level of care.
Outside of work. Emily enjoys going for bushwalks, exploring new places, and spending time with friends and family.
