Reece Danaher

PSYCHOLOGIST, PERSONAL TRAINER AND DIRECTOR

I am a registered Psychologist who grew up in Townsville loving a wide variety of sports and outdoor activities.

 

I completed my Bachelors of Psychology in 2013 and acquired my personal training certifications so that I could offer children and adolescents a different form of counselling, 'Active Counselling' as well as traditional 'non-active' counselling. I am passionate about working with children, adolescents and their families and I strongly believe that every individual has strengths that can help them to overcome their difficulties and achieve their potential.

Ari Smith 

PRACTICE MANAGER

I excitedly took up the Practice Manager at Active Health Psychology in 2021 and am excited to implement my skills in the field of mental health.

 

I was born in Bali and moved to Australia when I was 3. Townsville is now my home and I love it here. Throughout my life I have been fortunate enough to live and play cricket in various countries and these experiences have helped me to realise and appreciate how important physical activity and sport is to everyday life. My goal is to continue to help make Active Health Psychology a supportive, friendly and inclusive environment for people to receive support.

Katie Pryce-Jones

PROVISIONAL PSYCHOLOGIST 

Having just recently completed my Bachelors of Psychology (Hons), I am excited to combine my knowledge and my love of sport to help support those in need to take the next steps to change. 

I previously worked as an NDIS support worker and High Performance Sport Ambassador on the Sunshine Coast. I have recently relocated to Townsville to complete my final studies and am excited to support children, adolescents and their families within the community. In my free time I love rock climbing, playing golf and going for walks with friends. I feel inspired to work at Active Health Psychology as it gives me the freedom to encourage growth and development through both ‘active’ and ‘non-active’ sessions.

Jacob Price

PSYCHOLOGIST 

I am a Registered Psychologist, and a Townsville local! Growing up, I competed in BMX racing for many years, where I developed my passion for exercise and promoting personal growth.

I completed my Bachelor of Psychology (Hons) in 2015, aspiring to provide valuable psychology services to children, adolescents and their families to make meaningful change. My style is client-centred. I utilise a number of evidence-based approaches, but make sure to add in a splash of excitement and fun as we work towards what is most meaningful for you. I provide a safe, non-judgemental and accepting environment for all of my clients.

 

In my free time, you’ll find me riding downhill on my mountain bike, gaming or playing music with friends.
