Meet our Psychologists and learn more about our practice and what guides us.
Every Psychologist at Humanique has 3 things in common; a passion for helping others, empathy for those in suffering, and excellence in clinical training. We are driven by our mission of connecting the people of Perth, WA with the highest quality of accessible and affordable mental health services.
Humanique was founded in 2018 and our philosophy is simple; to promote psychological well-being through a positive and supportive therapeutic relationship, and to “normalise” psychotherapy. Our emotional concerns are as legitimate and valid as their physical counterparts. Anyone should be free to get the mental help they need anytime, without unnecessary inconvenience, excessive costs or unfounded stigma.
Humanique is actively involved in the community and regularly supports a range of both local and overseas charities with a focus on mental health and helping disadvantaged children. We’re also proud adopters of Hector and Koyah, our Turtle and Orangutan 🙂 . Most recently, we’ve picked up granting wishes with the Starlight Foundation and helping children be seen and protected through our regular donations to Barnardos.

Dale Shrestha MAPS
Dale is a Perth based Psychologist with a strong interest in helping people develop the ability to flourish in all aspects of their life. She believes that the most important step in starting the process of therapy is creating a safe and comfortable space, free of judgement or blame where you can work together as partners towards overcoming the difficulties in life you may be facing.
She adopts an integrative outlook towards therapy and uses a two-step approach; reducing symptoms with scientifically based therapeutic techniques for short-term relief from presenting difficulties, and deeper healing techniques which aim to identify and manage troublesome behaviours and patterns to improve long-term positive outcomes. In short, she aims to help you lead your best life possible.
In addition to her formal training in psychology, she has additional specialised training in mindfulness and relaxation techniques as well as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). She is highly experienced in working with people from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures including newly arrived migrants and international students.

Yu Ying Low
Ying has a strong passion for providing therapy that is client-centred, compassionate, empathic, reflective. Through facilitating her clients’ self-exploration, healing, recovery and progress, her aim is to help clients reach their best potentials, and live fulfilling and meaningful lives. Additionally, Ying is mindful about delivering therapy that is culturally sensitive.
In her work with children and adolescents, Ying often utilises a systems approach to ensure the young person is fully supported. This could encompass working with a multi-disciplinary perspective, which may include consulting with or referring clients to health practitioners, educators, disability support officers, and/or student support officers. Depending on the age and presenting issues of the young person, Ying also believes that parents and family often play an important role in supporting and facilitating the recovery of the young individual. Her treatment approach when working with youths thus often incorporates therapeutic work focused on attachment, family dynamics, parental reflective functioning and parent’s well-being, amidst the use of CBT techniques, and/or conducting functional analyses of behaviours.
