Zeina has worked with clients across the lifespan from children to adolescents and adults. Zeina’s roles have primarily seen her assisting in the provision of assessment, treatment and rehabilitation and often working with multiple stakeholders.
Zeina began her studies in a Bachelor of Psychology at the University of Western Sydney and working with the Department of Family & Community Services as a youth support worker whilst an undergraduate. During that time Zeina also completed her Lifeline / Youthline training and began working as a telephone counsellor. Upon completion of her degree she was accepted into the Masters programme and completed her Master of Psychology (Forensic) and commenced working as a Centrelink Psychologist in the South Metro offices of Bankstown, Strathfield, Campsie and Liverpool where she solely developed and facilitated a Parenting Programme aimed at equipping parents in Campbelltown develop social and wellbeing skills. Whilst at Centrelink Zeina assisted psychology masters students from UWS gain placements at Centrelink to assist meeting their supervisory requirements so it was only a natural progression that she commenced teaching psychology within the School of Social Sciences & Psychology and the School of Nursing & Midwifery at the University of Western Sydney on a sessional basis - where she also remains. Zeina has been volunteering her psychology services to a school with a large number of families from lower socio economic backgrounds where parents / carers are unable to afford the cost of assessment and treatment of their children. This is her desire to ensure that there exists equity in access to wellbeing services for all families.
