“I have been a registered psychologist for 20 years but I began my career in healthcare as a chiropractor, graduating in 1984 from the Phillip Institute of Technology (which later became RMIT University). After practicing chiropractic for 6 years, I commenced my journey to becoming a psychologist, completing my undergraduate at Monash University, and my postgraduate studies at RMIT where I also completed a Master’s in Education. Initially I worked helping people who were managing chronic pain, before moving into assisting those dealing with substance abuse issues. Now my work is primarily in the area of anxiety and panic disorders. I work using the cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) framework, which examines the impact our thoughts have on our actions, and provides people with strategies to create positive changes in their lives.”
Frank has also been a lecturer at RMIT University for the past 18 years, teaching psychology and chiropractic subjects within the chiropractic program.
