Dr Emily Hines BSc (Psychology) (Hons), DPsych (Clinical) is a Clinical Psychologist who has a particular interest in the assessment and intervention of mood disorders, anxiety disorders, substance use disorders and trauma survivors across the lifespan.

Emily also has clinical expertise in adjustment disorders, eating disorders, developmental disorders, and relationship difficulties.

Emily predominantly uses Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and places a strong emphasis on the therapeutic relationship as an agent of change. She utilises clinical assessment interviews and standardised self-report assessment measures to provide DSM-5 diagnoses, and monitor treatment gains across the course of therapy. Emily is qualified to conduct psychoeducational assessments including cognitive assessments and learning assessments across the lifespan.

Emily is registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency. She is accredited with Medicare to provide Clinical Psychology services.

Emily received her Doctor of Psychology (Clinical) from Queensland University of Technology and obtained her Honours undergraduate degree from the University of Queensland.


Emily’s Honours thesis explored the psychological impacts of perceived discrimination against international students, and how the adverse impacts (reduced self-esteem and satisfaction with life) could be alleviated. The results indicated that identification with the international student group buffered against the negative consequences of perceived discrimination.

Emily’s Doctoral thesis was a randomised controlled trial that examined the relative efficacy of two online psychological interventions for alcohol misuse. The results revealed that even brief online interventions could promote significant reductions in alcohol consumption. The results of this study are expected to be published in a psychological journal in the near future.
