Dr Vikki Knott (Adjunct Associate Professor) is the Director of Ascot Psychology & Allied Health. Her motivation for opening the practice was to be able to provide accessible and timely services to support the needs of the Ascot community as well as the broader Brisbane community.

Dr Knott has worked in research and teaching for over 25 years, and completed her Masters in Clinical Psychology later in life. As a Clinical Psychologist, Dr Knott combines her passion for research and its application with a warm, authentic and compassionate approach to working with clients.

She adopts a trauma-informed approach to therapy and is keen to work with diverse groups and cultures. Dr Knott embraces interdisciplinary collaboration (with GPs, Psychiatrists, and other Allied Health professionals), especially when working with complex cases (e.g., schizophrenia, multiple comorbidities etc).

What type of Psychologist are you?

I am a warm and open psychologist who enjoys working with diverse presentations. I am compassionate whilst also being direct. I like to maintain a focus on providing efficient services that are well formulated and targeted. The aim is to have clients feel confident that they have the skills to navigate challenges in the future, beyond the therapeutic space.

What values do you bring to your work?

I believe that all Australians are entitled to access psychological services in a timely manner. Treatment should also be efficient and developed in alignment with the latest evidence, whilst considering client’s goals and aspirations.

What do you hope your clients achieve whilst working with you?

I hope that my clients feel comfortable in my presence to share and open up to allow for an ongoing therapeutic relationship. Whilst every client’s needs are different, I like to tailor services to suit individual clients so that they feel that they are getting what they need at the right time.
