Ms Judith Marty
I celebrate my 20th year as a Psychologist in 2017. My work has been informed by my curiousity for people and the learning that our profession provides. If you know me, you know the catch cry -
No-one does psychology like a Psychologist!

I have spent my personal and professional life in rural and remote Australia and it is only in the last four years that I find myself living the 'metro' life. I have worked in the government, non-government and independant practice settings.

My engagement with the APS stretches back to my student days and I have developed (and at times achieved professsional survival) through the networks and opportunities of the APS. I have been Branch Secretary, Chair, State Political Liaison Officer and the DGPP Representative for Western Australia.

I am honoured to hold the role of Perth Branch Chair and represent the members of Perth, Western Australia.

Deputy Chair

Mr Adam Emrah Ates
Phone: 1300 979 328
Adam Ates is honoured to hold the role of Deputy Chair of Perth Branch and represent the members of Perth Branch. He graduated from his Masters Degree of Clinical Psychology from Curtin University in Western Australia and has been working since 2005. His professional approach is to develop functional relationships based on trust, confidentiality and an open dialogue.
