About Dr Mark Craigie


I work as a registered clinical psychologist (clinical psychology practice endorsement) in full-time private practice in West Perth, Western Australia. I provide clinical psychology and psychotherapy for adults with stress, anxiety, depression, adjustment problems.  I am registered to provide clinical psychological services under the Medicare Health Scheme and I am registered with the major private health insurers. Cognitive-behavioural, metacognitive, and schema therapy frameworks inform my professional approach. Moreover, I have extensive experience in mindfulness training and mindfulness-based approaches for adults with anxiety and depression. To date, I have been running MBCT groups for stress, anxiety and depression since 2003, and I have been the principal MBCT therapist at the Marian Centre hospital from 2008 to 2016, located in Perth, Western Australia.
