Nova Delaney

Consultant Psychiatrist

I am a Queer and Neurodivergent, non-biological mum to two exceptional kids. We have 3 whippets, a kitty, 2 turtles and we love to connect with games, movies, and shenanigans. I run my own solo practice as a Consultant Psychologist and Board Approved Supervisor, that operates exclusively in the field of eHealth/Telepsychology provision across Australia.

I predominately work within the NDIS/Medicare space with populations of societal A-Typicality and risk. This includes but not limited to persons of diverse sexuality, sex and gender; Neuro Divergent brains, family violence and complex trauma. I work within a person-centred, lived experience approach where the understanding of systems, power, and privilege dynamics, accompanied by internal narrative and Emotion Digestion shape the therapeutic work.

I’m continuing my development in the practice of Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) to open the pathway to accreditation as an EFT Supervisor to train and support more professionals in the art of Emotion digestion. I’m passionate about challenging the existing ableist views held within Psychology where the client is seen as ‘broken or Maladaptive’ rather than considering the impact of social determinants that have influenced ‘what has happened to you’. I value learning through storytelling, comedy and connection and look forward to our time together.

The Mental Health Professionals’ Network (MHPN) respectfully acknowledges the Wurundjeri and the Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin nation, the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the land on which our office is situated. We also acknowledge Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
