Daniel He

Clinical Psychologist

Bio

“Life can be challenging. Sometimes difficult experiences shape who we are as people and to protect ourselves we often lose sight of what is important to live a fulfilled life. The core to my work is to create a safe space for people to explore their difficulties free from judgement, understand the core reasons for challenging emotional reactions and behavioral responses, and to collaboratively make purposeful changes towards identified goals”. – Daniel He.

As a psychologist, Daniel understands that every individual and their story is unique, and he is dedicated to understanding his clients through compassion, empathy, and honesty. His aims are to work collaboratively with his clients on identifying goals and to provide evidence-based therapies suited to making meaningful change. Prior to joining The Talbot Centre, Daniel has worked with individuals in both inpatient and outpatient adolescent mental health at a public hospital, a rural university clinic and in private practice. He also has experience providing structured clinical interviews with Aboriginal peoples.

Daniel appreciates that an individual presenting to therapy may face unique challenges that may impact their daily life and provides purposeful therapy to support his clients to manage these challenges. He further understands that the most effective client outcomes are guided by the latest research and clinical experience. Daniel has conducted and published research in the development of a self-report questionnaire to help professionals screen for symptoms of pregnancy-related anxiety.
