For the past 7 years Steve Carroll has co-owned and run Barwon Consulting Suites in Grovedale Geelong. This practice has 15 clinicians as well as a strong referral base. His decision to establish BOP is to focus on a select team environment in which psychologists work towards psychological excellence – one of client focused outcomes, deliberate practice, and constant improvement and learning. Prior to his work as a clinical psychologist at BCS Steve worked in various settings including youth mental health, drug and alcohol, and private practice settings and has over 15 years experience as a clinical psychologist and supervisor.
Steve’s interests include anxiety (panic, social, worry), trauma, addiction, personality disorders, grief and depression and he practices using cognitive behaviour therapy, emotion focused therapy, mindfulness, and schema therapy. He is a registered supervisor and has a strong interest in feedback informed treatment (FIT) and deliberate practice (DP).
Steve works with all client groups from 16 years old and above. Steve is a member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS) Clinical College and is registered with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
When Steve is not treating clients he enjoys playing guitar, listening to music, running ultra marathons, dreaming of a time when he can travel again, and spending time with his family and his loving golden retriever, Charlie.
