Helen Williams

BA Grad Dip Psych
Psychologist / Principal Consultant
Founding Partner Part Two (Qld), Registered Psychologist and MAPS

I am an experienced Psychologist and Rehabilitation Consultant, providing consultancy and case management services for organisations including Commonwealth Government Agencies, Compulsory Third Party Insurers, Work Cover Qld and NSW. 

I have worked directly with ex-military personnel and the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) for over 25 years. Along with our return to work support, we provide programs for clients who are not considered medically fit to return to work or participate in a vocational rehabilitation program.

These programs are aimed at improving our clients’ overall level of functioning, to ensure the introduction of structure into their lives, the greatest level of community engagement possible, improved socialisation avenues and enhanced self-esteem and confidence to optimise their health and wellbeing.

As a registered Psychologist since 1989, I have provided support to adults and children with mental health issues in a variety of settings, including prison, hospital and community-based government services, and as part of private practice.

I was an original member of the Case Management Project, Camden Health Services, UK for people with disabilities at a time when the biopsychosocial model of care and support was trialled. This model was widely implemented across the UK and later in Australia.

I have worked directly with the Department of Veterans’ Affairs as a rehabilitation consultant for more than 20 years providing rehabilitation services and psychological counselling. As a psychologist, I have a special interest in PTSD, in relation to the veteran community.

Rehabilitation Counsellor
Registered Rehabilitation Counsellor ASORC

My caseload as a Rehabilitation Counsellor has been diverse, working in the field of disabilities, mental health, aged care, and worker compensation schemes at Local, State and Federal levels and currently under the DVA and Comcare systems.

I have supported clients who have experienced psychological and physical trauma, intergenerational and long-term unemployment, and those involved in the civil and criminal justice systems.

I work with veterans using a holistic approach, in collaboration with their treating health practitioners and multidisciplinary teams, key stakeholders including their families/friends and support groups such as RSL Queensland. I support clients so that they can help themselves in their home, social connectedness and when medically fit, obtain and sustain employment.

Integrated Holistic Approach

Our aim is to improve all aspects of our client’s recovery and life through a ‘whole of person’ rehabilitation approach. We provide support that considers the physical, psychological, and social factors of each individual.

Return to Work Support

We identify suitable vocational options for our clients and develop successful return to work programs for those assessed as medically fit. Part Two Consultants work with the client’s treating healthcare team.

Medical Management

Many referrals to Part Two relate to medical management or psychosocial programs. We assist individuals deemed unable to work to access medical and therapeutic services aimed at maximising their physical and psychological health.
