Chair Elect

Mrs Alira Bayndrian
I am a Clinical Psychologist who spent the first five years of my career working in and managing a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Team in Alice Springs. I moved back to Coffs Harbour in 2015. I currently work in Private Practice across several locations providing therapy, consultation, and supervision. I have a special interest in working with children and young people, particularly those who have experienced trauma and in out of home care or alternative care arrangements.
I am also a ‘triathlete’, although not a very fast one and love training, swimming, cycling, and running.


Ms Basia Radlinska
I am a Clinical Psychologist, practicing at headspace Coffs Harbour, with a special interest in trauma and complex trauma, borderline personality disorder, bipolar disorder and eating disorders. I also hold the position of Lecturer in Psychology at Southern Cross University. I completed my PhD in Neuroscience in Montréal, Canada, and worked in that field for a number of years before becoming a Clinical Psychologist. My heritage is Polish and I love to travel, having lived overseas for much of my life. I also have two very big boofhead dogs, who rule the roost at home.


Position vacant

Committee Member

Ms Amy Sketcher
Professional Fact: My passion is working with children, youth, and families which has lead me to the two positions I currently hold as a School Psychologist at SJPC, and my private practice Seasons Allied Health which is focused on families, parenting, and children under 12.

Fun fact: I love experiencing and learning about different cultures, and ways of life (insert love of travel). This was instilled by parents at an early age when they took our family to live in the Solomon Islands before I started school, and has continued throughout my life.

Committee Member

Ms Kerrin Murray-Lyon
Clinical Psychologist working in private practice and in the NSW Health Chronic Pain Service.
