Jazmin started her career journey in the educational space, studying education and sociology, initially working within various professional services creating and delivering educational curriculum.

Jazmin is a provisionally registered psychologist – what does this mean?
The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (APHRA) grants the status of ‘provisional psychologist’ to individuals who have been assessed to have completed a minimum of 4 to 5 years of psychological education and wish to obtain their general registration as a psychologist. Provisionally registered psychologists are mentored by at least one fully registered psychologist, who they report to and discuss with all aspect of their clinical practice to demonstrate core competencies required for general registration. Please note that Medicare rebates do not apply when seeing a provisionally registered psychologist (only fully registered psychologists can apply for a Medicare provider number).
