Penny Sih

Clinical Psychologist, SA

Penny Sih is a clinical psychologist and a Team Leader at Developing Minds Psychology and Education, an Adelaide-based group private psychology practice that specialises in working with children and teens. Penny has worked as a psychologist for over 17 years in both the private sector and a variety of government settings, including Child Protection, Education and Community Health. She has always been passionate about supporting young people, their families and networks.

In her current work, she provides 1:1 therapy but also a significant amount of clinical, professional and crisis supervision to the psychology team at both Developing Minds and external providers. Penny is a talented speaker and regularly provides seminars to teachers, parents and young people to help them understand and respond effectively to the relational, emotional, behavioural and developmental needs of young people in fun, engaging, informative and non-jargonistic ways. Penny draws on a range of evidence-based frameworks and adapts her approaches to meet the needs of clients and their families. She loves to tell a story (or two) and believes engagement and connection are the foundations to learning and psychological growth.

Penny is also a proud Mum of both a primary school and high school aged child, so she lives the experience of knowing a lot of helpful stuff about parenting and finding it very hard to always do on a daily basis!
