Dr Errol Jacobson Consultant Psychiatrist MBBS BSc FRANZCP.
"I have worked with Megan Shiell during her time at The Sydney Clinic referring patients to her in my role as an admitting Psychiatrist. Megan co-ordinated the Dialectic Behavioural Therapy program and provided therapy in both DBT and Art psychotherapy. Her therapeutic approach was proficient and supportive and reflected in both an increasingly popular DBT program and a positive response from my patients. Her important work and initiative in this area continues to play an essential role in The Sydney Clinic treatment program. Megan’s clinical skills and patient dedication will be a considerable asset to the communities of Tweed Heads where she is establishing Expressive Therapy Clinic."

Testimonial of a Client.
"Working with Megan has dramatically changed my life from a life full of fear and overwhelming emotions, to one of confidence in dealing with whatever life throws at me. Along with her endless patience and encouragement, and a lot of hard work, she taught me new and very practical skills to express myself better, which enabled me to make a better life for myself. What I learnt through the use of art therapy and all the DBT skills is now helping me manage my emotions and my life much more effectively, and I am a happier person because of it. Thankyou Megan!"
