Outline of Treatment approach
Sally-Anne McCormack is a clinical psychologist, a former teacher, author of "Stomp Out The ANTs - Automatic Negative Thoughts" and "Living with ANTs", and a mother of four. She is a private practitioner who deals with clients of all ages (from children to adults) who have anxiety, depression and related disorders. She is registered as a media spokesperson for the Australian Psychological Society (A.P.S.) and can often be seen or heard on any of the major TV networks, radio programs or newspapers and magazines.

Sally-Anne assists adults who are facing challenges such as stress, depression, parenting challenges, anxiety, sleep problems (eg. insomnia), individual issues, along with a variety of other difficulties in their day-to-day lives.

She also has specific interests in the prevention and treatment of depression in children and adolescents, and in her practices, she regularly assists parents with the issues they face raising their children and teens in the 21 st century. She has been accredited to support a self-help sleep program.

She is the author of the “Stomp Out The ANTs Program” which includes group sessions for children and adolescents to help prevent negative self-talk and teach positive and pro-active strategies to reduce the risk of developing mental health issues in the future. She also runs adult group sessions for Dealing with Depression or Dealing with Anxiety.

In her “spare time” she is hoping to publish 2 books in the near future – one on parenting gifted students, and the other one providing some positive psychology ideas.

Sally-Anne created a TV show for community television that tackles mental health issues and inspiring & educational stories. If you would like to know more about what she is doing, please “LIKE” her Facebook page –
