The Owner | Dr. Rachel Abramson, Ph.D

About Rachel

Dr. Rachel Abramson, Ph.D. is the owner of RACHEL ABRAMSON & ASSOCIATES. She believes everyone is entitled to be the best version of themselves across the lifespan and in each domain of their lives. Over the years, this belief has morphed into her higher order mission (and business mission) of helping people reach their full potential: Personally, professionally, entrepreneurially and money-wise. It has also shaped how she applies her professional skills accumulated over 25 years of private practice.

Dr. Abramson draws on neuroscience, Ericksonian hypnosis, Solution Oriented Counselling and Neuro-linguistic Programming, healthy aging, habit formation, Holland's RIASEC model, adult learning principles, logotherapy and goal setting theory to help people reach more of their own full potential. And, while she has a professional interest in each of these areas, it is something she has been drawn to since she was a teenager. Indeed, some of the earliest books she bought (and still owns) represent early thinking on the power of the subconscious mind.

Dr. Abramson is an organisational, health and counselling psychologist, with a PhD in behavioural finance (AKA economic psychology). She is also a hypnotherapist, career counsellor, trainer and educator. Dr. Abramson is a member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS). She is a fellow of the Career Development Association of Australia. She is also a fellow of the APS College of Organisational Psychologists, APS College of Health Psychologists and APS College of Counselling Psychologists.

She has published health, career and business articles on Ezine Articles. She is currently in the process of authoring books in each of the areas she teaches.

In line with her higher order mission, Dr. Abramson provides a range of services to help people reach their full potential: Personally, professionally, entrepreneurially and money-wise. (See below).
