About

Dr Aileen Alegado

Dr. Aileen Alegado is a registered clinical psychologist and the Director of Mindset Consulting, a boutique practice based in Sydney CBD.

Aileen believes that when it comes to therapy, there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach, so she integrates a variety of psychological models – including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Schema Therapy – into her practice to ensure you receive tailored strategies to achieve realistic, measurable outcomes.

Whether working with individuals, couples or groups, she is described by her clients as having a warm and enthusiastic approach and her vision is to create a safe and nurturing environment in which you are able to thrive. Aileen specialises in the assessment and treatment of mental health conditions, the administration of neuropsychological assessments and the use of psychometric tools.

Outside of her practice, Aileen is also an experienced speaker and presenter, passionate about raising awareness for mental health within the community. She is a coach and mentor for other clinicians and a board-approved supervisor for the Australia Psychological Society (APS).
