Dr Merima Isakovic  (Director)

Clinical Psychologist & AHPRA Approved Primary Supervisor

I decided to become Clinical Psychologist after being directly involved in voluntary work of helping victims of horrifying war in my homeland, former Yugoslavia.

Dr. Merima Isakovic is a Principal Clinical Psychologist.

At this point, there is one practice location in Canberra, ACT and two practice locations in City of Gold Coast. Merima is regularly seeing clients in Canberra ACT as well as the Gold Coast practice locations.

Merima is committed to grow strong clinical teams at all locations. Merima is therefore supervising the colleague Psychologists who work in her practice. Through their good and experienced clinical work as well as regular clinical supervision, they will soon be endorsed with Clinical Endorsement and therefore, become Clinical Psychologists.
