About Our Perth Psychologists

Headway was founded in 2018 by Dr Tom Parker. Tom is an experienced clinical psychologist who is passionate about psychology, mental health and wellbeing.

Tom’s vision was to bring together high performing individuals with different allied health backgrounds to deliver a more holistic approach to the management of mental health issues.

Dr Tom Parker has a particular interest in the combination of psychology, exercise, and dietary interventions for presenting issues such as post-traumatic stress, anxiety, burnout, and depression. Tom remains committed to Headway’s strategy which is to continue evolving Headway’s holistic program; to recruit and retain the best practitioners; and to provide a comfortable office environment for team members to thrive and do their best work.

Dr Fiona Hedderwick joined the Headway team in 2020 and became a Director of Headway in 2023. Her warm, compassionate and client focused approach has been an excellent complement to Headway’s leadership team.

Fiona is an experienced clinical psychologist who is diligent, hardworking and passionate about helping people through various life challenges.
