At One Psychology

Lesley Bailey   |   Gold Coast



Meet Lesley

I hold a Bachelor of Psychological Science (Honours, First Class) and a Master of Professional Psychology. I am a registered psychologist with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) Psychology Board of Australia, and a member of the Australian Association of Psychologists Inc. (MAAPi). I have a background in high school teaching, counselling and naturopathy, providing a skill set that contributes to my current psychology practice.



My psychology experience includes working in private practice, community psychology, victims of crime, residential aged care, telehealth and with government primary health networks (PHNs). I have a passion for collaboratively working with adults and adolescents to enhance their mental health wellbeing by using a combination of therapeutic approaches. I provide a warm and empathetic approach to supporting people through challenging periods in their lives.
