Dr. Travis Gee is a senior psychologist who has been helping Queenslanders with a wide range of problems for over 12 years. He has been an executive member of the Australian Counselling Association and Honourary Life Member for many years.
A former lecturer at a number of different universities in both Australia and his native Canada, he has published articles in a range of areas, and served in a number of editorial roles. Travis integrates a science-based approach with a keen interest in individual’s stories and how each of us creates our own narrative through our day-to-day activities and decision-making processes.
His interest in Personal Construct Psychology, Personal Projects Psychology and Mindfulness-Integrated Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, narrative approaches and creative arts therapies inform his approach, which is aimed at finding the right set of tools for each client, given his or her circumstances.
Children, Adolescents, Couples & Families
His approach to working with children and adolescents ranges from simple behavioural solutions to systems-based family interventions. He has worked in clinics across a range of socio-economic strata, and continues to work on the Moreton Bay Islands in addition to his time at the Beenleigh Neighbourhood Centre, in Beenleigh.
Travis also has worked in the psycho-legal context, writing reports on instructions from both solicitors and self-represented litigants as well as helping clients formulate successful proposals for parenting plans in separation and divorce situations. He has followed Parental Alienation Syndrome for many years, making a submission to the US professional body that later incorporated it into the diagnostic manual under a different name.
He is well-versed on matters relating to domestic violence, child safety issues, and is available to provide professional critiques of reports as well as independent second opinions based on sound psychological testing. These reports have included critiques of so-called “repressed memory” evidence in historical (eg over 30 years old) criminal cases of alleged abuse, which were the topic of his PhD Comprehensive paper.
