Dean Janover

BBSc, Grad Dip Psych, M Psych, MAPS

Dean has been practicing as a psychologist since 1999 and works with both adults and adolescents across a range of presentations. Passionate about enabling change, he utilises Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Mindfulness and Schema therapy techniques to enable clients to get out of their heads and into life. Dean has a special interest in treating mental health issues in athletes and is a psychologist for the AFL Players Association. He also works extensively in the corporate and forensic psychology fields.

Dean likes to maintain a good balance between keeping physically active and exercising his brain by sketching, taking photographs and listening to podcasts. He loves all things musical and is an avid collector of vinyl records (Because they sound better!!!).

Dr Irene Panagopoulos

BBSc, Grad Dip Psych, D Psych (Forensic), MAPS

Irene is a clinical and forensic psychologist who has worked with adults and adolescents since 2002.  She brings with her a high level of skill honed over many years of working in challenging clinical and forensic settings. Irene’s therapeutic approaches incorporate Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Trauma therapy and Mindfulness. Irene has a special interest in trauma (physical, sexual and emotional) and its impact on health and wellbeing. She has a passion for understanding and sharing her knowledge on the mind-body connection and therefore knows her way around the brain and all its functions.

Outside of work Irene indulges her love of art. She engages in an eclectic range of creative pursuits and strongly believes in following your passion to foster wellbeing.
