Dr Carolyn (Ping) Ho

Clinical Psychologist (adult)


Carolyn is a clinical psychologist and she has a strong interest in working with individuals to cultivate and maintain psychological resilience. She brings a calming presence in her therapeutic work, and provides a safe space for patients to explore their concerns. Carolyn welcomes patients who appreciate explorative work and insight-oriented therapy to assist their personal growth and enhance wellbeing. She especially enjoys working with patients in helping them gaining clarity and becoming more attuned to their own needs and values. 

Carolyn offers individual psychotherapy and specializes in long-term explorative psychotherapy. She uses an integrative approach that is guided by evidence-based psychology frameworks, such as contemporary Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and mindfulness practices. Her overall approach is person centred, compassionate focused, trauma informed and strength based.

Carolyn obtained her Professional Doctorate in Psychology (Clinical) at Queensland University of Technology. Prior immigrating to Australia, Carolyn was born in Taiwan and moved to New Zealand during primary school years. She completed a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and later a Masters in Health Psychology, both at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. She gained experience working in clinical research of infant development while in New Zealand, and in both public and private mental health settings in Australia for over a decade. Carolyn works with adults of all ages, genders, cultures, and sexual orientations. She supports patients in managing mood, stress and anxiety related issues; assists them in working through identity concerns, transgenerational challenges, life transitions, adjustment difficulties, relational challenges and processing trauma. 

Carolyn is a bilingual psychologist who is able to assist patients in Mandarin if desired. Her doctoral research explored the negotiating processes among Asian immigrant families across different life stages and ages in Australia. Given Carolyn’s cultural background and past experiences with life transitions, she also has special interests in immigrant health, and assisting young emerging adults in navigating developing stages and exploring their possibilities.
