Katherine Vuong is a provisionally registered psychologist with Vision Psychology. She is a gentle and compassionate person and aims to provide a safe space for people to feel heard in a non-blaming, non-stigmatising environment. She welcomes clients from different cultural, spiritual and religious backgrounds.
Katherine is passionate about supporting clients to improve the quality of their interpersonal relationships and communication, and enhance mental health and wellbeing. She works collaboratively with clients to find ways around barriers that might be preventing this, and to help them gradually make choices that move them closer to where they want to be.
Katherine has a keen interest in helping teenagers and adults on a variety of issues, including:
- Grief and loss
- Interpersonal difficulties
- Life transitions such as career change, moving to a new city, or becoming a parent
*Katherine is unable to see children 12yo and under.
Katherine believes that it is important to find a therapist whom you can trust and feel comfortable with. She is committed to using evidence-based treatment interventions such as Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), which she tailors to suit the individual needs of the client. Her approach generally involves the practice of learned skills outside of sessions to help promote generalisation of skills.
Counselling in Vietnamese
Katherine was born and raised in Australia, and is of Vietnamese ancestry. Growing up in a family that endorsed traditional Vietnamese values, she has a unique understanding of some of the challenges people may face from identifying with multiple cultures.

Community Development and Customer Liaison Officer
Provisional Psychologists at Vision Psychology are dedicated to community development and liaising with clients to find appropriate services. Katherine is able to visit your community organisation and discuss ways in which our clinics can effectively work together.
Please Note: Katherine is not able to see clients who wish to claim private health or Medicare rebates and thus offers her consultations at a reduced rate. Provisional Psychologists are supervised by senior psychologists in the clinic in a similar way that registrars (doctors) are supervised by senior doctors. Provisional Psychologists are only able to provide psychology services that are consistent with their training and level of expertise.
