Dr Yvette Vardy
Clinical Psychologist, DBT Therapist, BPD Trainer.
Dr Yvette Vardy is an enthusiastic and engaging trainer who has a knack of explaining concepts and skills in a way that just makes sense! She is a clinical psychologist with fifteen years' experience in treating individuals with mental illnesses. Her work and interests have focused on the treatment of people with borderline personality disorder and those with complex issues and traumatic histories to overcome their difficulties and recover. Yvette uses evidence-based practices and is passionate about providing treatments that work, ensuring clients and students are left with very tangible and concrete ways to manage themselves and their symptoms differently. Yvette enjoys providing both individual and group therapy and maintains a private practice for clinical work in Melbourne, Australia.
Additionally, Dr Yvette Vardy has established several Dialectical Behaviour Therapy programs in Australia and worked as a senior educator with Spectrum, Personality Disorders Service of Victoria. She continues to train clinicians from all backgrounds to work effectively with clients diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, and she provides both individual and group supervision to clinicians seeking DBT training and support. Dr Vardy has recently published a paper on the intolerance of "aloneness" in borderline personality disorder and this paper is freely available online. After recently providing an online guest lecture series for an advanced psychotherapy course she discovered her love for online training. She is excited about embarking on this new online training adventure and hopes she can share her passion and skills with a whole new audience.
