Dr Renee Cachia is an experienced Australian psychologist, board-approved clinical supervisor, and the founder of a child, adolescent and family psychology practice, Inner Bloom Practice. Renee's intention is to show up as a supportive and authentic human in the room to support others to recognise our collective human struggles.

In clinical practice, she integrates evidence-based developmental psychology, neuroscience, cognitive-behavioural therapy, mindfulness-based therapies with her practical experience in positive behaviour support, parent-child interaction, stress and anxiety management, to cultivate individualised approaches to improve the lives of young people and their parents.

She has extensive experience providing therapeutic intervention for individuals with a wide range of mental health and neurodevelopmental challenges, including risk and suicide prevention, differential diagnoses and early intervention, anxiety, mood and depressive disorders.

As Renee is cautious about the overstigmatised, overlabelled and pharmaceutical approach to mental health, her mission is to truly empower parents with psychoeducation to regain a sense of sovereignty when supporting their children.
