James Kneller - ATUNE Health Centres - General Psychologist
B. Soc. Sc. (Psych) (Hons), B.A., M. App. Psych. (Sport)
James has spent a lifetime helping people navigate their way effectively and positively through life in his working roles. He put this passion into his studies and has years of experience as a registered psychologist working successfully with individuals and businesses. His personal style can best be described as caring, honest, clear, and informal. Some of ATUNE’s GP’s like to describe him as “real” when referring their more reluctant patients.
He uses predominantly an ACT framework, with a mix of other therapy styles (CBT, Narrative, Solution focused), plus some common sense and logic. His regular use of life examples and “what if” scenarios mean he primarily works with clients from 14yrs and older. In 2022 he became an AHPRA board approved supervisor and is open to taking on roles as a secondary supervisor.
If you talk with James for any length of time you will hear him talk about the relationship between simple and easy. He works hard to make the therapy process simple for his clients but knows that this doesn’t mean it’s an easy one. But he is right there with them throughout the journey that is needed.
He has a proven track record working with clients across common referral issues such as depression, anxiety, grief, relationship issues, work problems, dealing with kids and their issues, health concerns and changes, and managing unexpected changes in our lives.
When he’s not working, he’s involved in numerous sports both watching and playing with cricket, golf and NRL often being juggled. He’s an avid NRL Supercoach competitor, and regularly tells us that
he knows more about the Marvel universe, DC, and the various Star Wars/Trek/Gate franchises than most. In 2023 he’s hoping to have a new four-legged family member arrive, but we’ll see..
