    Dr Alicia Carter is a Senior Lecturer at Central Queensland University and Registered Psychologist with AHPRA. In 2021, Alicia completed a PhD examining the efficacy of Compassion Focused Therapy as a treatment for Body Weight Shame in people with a BMI greater than 30.

    Alicia has a broad range of interests and uses a range of therapeutic models suitable for both individual and group therapy. Whilst Alicia’s therapeutic style is aimed to treat anxiety, depression, stress, trauma and chronic pain along with body and weight concerns such as body dysmorphia, obesity and body weight shame. She is also interested in assisting with non-diagnostic areas such as those experiencing bullying, relationship struggles, as well as grief and loss.

    In addition to clinical practice, Alicia continues to research the field of health psychology, specifically how compassion focused therapy can be used to assist individuals with nutritional, eating, body or health related concerns (body weight shame, lymphedema, and diabetes). Alicia has the capacity to see both adults and adolescents.
