Dr Wade Jacklin



Wade has enjoyed working with clients in both a clinical and coaching capacity for the past 10 years.  In his capacity as a Clinical Psychologist, Wade specialises in the treatment and prevention of a range of psychological and general health problems affecting adults and couples. Wade is a strong advocate of positive psychology with specific areas of interest including the treatment of anxiety, depression and work-related stress.

Wade’s primary objective in therapy is to understand and promote the human strengths that enable individuals to move beyond suffering to achieve a high level of life satisfaction.  In the treatment of clinical syndromes, such as depression and anxiety, Wade has expertise in many of the most effective and current treatment modalities that allow for effective transfer of the knowledge and skills required by clients to overcome and manage emotional difficulties.

Wade has completed advanced level training in Strategic Therapy, Schema Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Clinical Hypnosis. Wade is committed to ongoing professional development. Recently he completed a six month advanced training program with Dr Michael Yapko, a world leader in the treatment of depression and the application of clinical hypnosis.

Wade recently had this to say on the subject of therapy…

“I believe that the opportunity for powerful learning and lasting change is lost if the client does not come away with a very clear and transformational experience that is anchored by specific skills that have been rehearsed and applied in the client’s life. There are many strategies that can be applied in therapy to enhance the memory and application of the learnings achieved in therapy. These include: carefully structured sessions that have an agreed agenda and objective, provision of reading material covering key ideas, providing recordings of sessions that can be reviewed after the session, and looping back over central ideas to deepen and integrate new learnings. The primary objective of this therapy guide is to provide you with a further tool to rehearse and imbed key ideas covered in therapy.”
