Dr Jeanne Georgius

Director and Neuropsychologist
“My vision is to provide a healthy and happy workplace with clinicians that provide the best clinical services possible. I believe that the way we achieve that is to have a team approach and a culture of collaboration, support, clear communication and humour.”

Dr Jeanne Georgius is the founder and director of Heroes Allied Health. She is a clinical neuropsychologist who has a wealth of experience having worked as a clinician in hospitals in Melbourne and Ballarat, as well as a lecturer in the Psychology and Postgraduate Neuropsychology programs of the University of Victoria. One of her most challenging and instructive early work experiences was her work in the emergency behaviour team in Disability Services in Hobart. She has worked in private practice in Noosa Heads for the last 10 years, predominantly in the medico-legal sphere but has in more recent years gained much experience in the NDIS sector.

She has extensive knowledge and training in medico-legal assessments, Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) and Cognitive Remediation. She has 20 years of experience in the field of Clinical Neuropsychology and has specialist knowledge in the diagnosis and treatment of traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Jeanne became a psychologist because she loves to help people and empower them. She is passionate about improving outcomes for her clients by providing clinical excellence and evidence-based recommendations with empathy and warmth. She is also determined to create a healthy and happy workplace that prioritises the emotional, psychological and social wellbeing of her team.

Originally from South Africa, Jeanne emigrated when she was 25 years of age, then trained and studied in Melbourne before relocating with her husband and children to Noosa Heads because “the stunning natural environment of the Sunshine Coast is a buffet for the soul!”
