About Breakthrough Psychology

Hi, I’m Dr Kerri Thomas, a Clinical Psychologist in Darwin

As an experienced clinical psychologist who’s grown up in the NT, I enjoy working with people from all walks of life to help them successfully face challenges, live a healthier life and reconnect with those they love. There’s nothing more rewarding than walking alongside people who struggle with anxiety, depression or relationship issues to watch them get their lives back on track and reach their full potential.     

Away from the clinic, you’ll find me spending time with my husband, three young girls and a fluffy Cavoodle. Growing up in the NT gave me a love for  the outdoors, travel and endurance sport especially marathons, ultramarathons and Ironman events. There’s something incredibly fulfilling about challenging yourself physically and continually pushing your boundaries.
