Dana Yalouz 

Registered Psychologist and EMDR Therapist

I am a registered psychologist and EMDR Therapist who is passionate about providing a compassionate and authentic experience for individuals seeking to develop an understanding of themselves and make meaningful changes. 

I grew up in Sydney, around the eastern beaches, and have supported people across their lifespan in navigating their unique mental health challenges, including anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, relationships, substance abuse, neurodiversity and more.


I also have experience working with the Australian Defence Force and offer unique insights into the military experience for serving members, veterans, and their families.

I provide in-person and online telehealth sessions and am registered with Medicare, enabling eligible clients to claim the Medicare rebate through the Mental Health Treatment Plan (MHTP). Clients may also be eligible for rebates through their private health insurance. I also accept NDIS referrals under a self-managed plan. 

As a trauma-informed therapist, I am trained in the following evidence-based therapies: 

  • CBT - Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

  • DBT - Dialectical Behaviour Therapy

  • ACT - Acceptance Commitment Therapy

  • ST - Schema Therapy: Mode Model

  • EMDR - Eye-Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing 

  • ST - Somatic Therapy

At DY Psychology, Dana is compassionate and authenic in her approach, using evidence-based therapies to collaboratively work with her clients to provide mental health support for individuals seeking to better understand themselves and make meaningful change.

Approaching mental health holistically and establishing a strong therapeutic relationship are foundational to my practice. I believe that a trusting and collaborative partnership between therapist and client is essential for effective therapy. Together, we can navigate your unique challenges and find the most suitable path forward.

We are all constantly evolving and striving to become the best versions of ourselves. By embracing life with empathy and compassion, we gain deeper insights into our own experiences and those of others. This insight not only allows us to navigate our current challenges but also paves the way forward to becoming the person we aspire to be.

I am committed to supporting you throughout your journey and am here for you every step of the way. Through open communication, mutual respect, and a shared dedication to learning and growth, I am confident that we can make meaningful progress.
