Chair

Dr Cindy Wall
Cindy is a Clinical Psychologist with experience working across private, public health, and academic settings.

She has been an APS member since her undergraduate days, and has contributed to a number of APS committees and interests groups including those focussed on regional, rural, and remote issues, and accident and compensation matters. She previously represented the NT on the National Committee in the early 2000's and is proud to be part of a passionate group of NT Clinical Psychologists whose energy and drive led to formalising the NT as a college section in 2007.

Cindy's work has been primarily in the area of clinical health and injury managment, focussing on the interaction of personality and mental and physical health conditions.

Cindy is keen to support the work of current NT College members and, along with the Territory committee, contributing to the growth of the next generation of Clinical Psychologists.

Chair-Elect

Position vacant

Secretary

Mrs Kassandra Payne
I am originally from Canberra, however I have lived and worked in Darwin for the last 7 Years. I recently received clinical endorsement following completion of my MPsyc at CDU. I consider supervision a vital component of successful practice and I have recently undertaken the training to become a board certified supervisor. I work primarily in private practice working with clients across the life span. I also enjoy working with families to conduct a range of assessments for children and adolescents. As early career representative I believe it is important that students and recently graduated clinicians are encouraged to see themselves as future professionals. I see my role as helping provide the opportunity to develop ongoing supportive relationships through professional and social events, and providing education and insight into the process of becoming a Clinical Psychologist.
