Dr Jamie Lee, PhD, is principal researcher and counselling psychologist at Relationships Australia South Australia. He has worked in psychology research or practice (or both) since the last century. He traces his pursuit of psychology to a vague teenage hope of finding girlfriends more easily.
Jamie became a chartered psychologist in 1998 in the UK after a doctorate with Professor David Canter at the University of Liverpool. Jamie then held a science management position at Unilever Research and Development in the UK where he made his name in Chinese dandruff.
Since migrating to Australia, Jamie has mostly been at Relationships Australia South Australia researching the intricacies of the DOORS with its developers Jenn McIntosh, Claire Ralfs and others. He also gets great satisfaction by journeying with kids through the emotional turmoil of family separation; helping families stay safer with universal risk screening; finding evidence of great outcomes for clients; looking for the story behind the numbers and why they go up, down or – occasionally – both; and reciting limericks at conferences in front of his peers.
Jamie is registered as a psychologist, endorsed in counselling psychology, a member of the Australian Psychological Society and a Fellow of its College of Counselling Psychology.
