Luciana franicevic - therapist
My name is Luciana and I am your Gold Coast Therapist with 17 years of experience working in both public and private sectors with children, youth and adult populations.
I have had had a keen interest in human behaviour for a long time. I have also been curious about the power of communication (verbal and non verbal) and processing of emotion. This was initially triggered by my curiosity, questioning of the societal norms and the impact of religion on human behaviour in my homeland Croatia. I found myself fascinated by peoples' relationships to their faiths and I was interested in studying theology. Nowadays I am interested in the same and beyond, more specifically, in human understanding of their own power and rank and its subsequent applications.
I completed my Honours with First Class in 2003 and my 2-year internship at the Adult Community Mental Health. Later I also took up roles with Child & Youth Mental Health, Mirikai Gold Coast Drug Council, GC Project for Homeless Youth, Griffith University Suicide Prevention research project and lastly, with the employment services across both Brisbane and the Gold Coast. I have been working in private practice since 2008, initially operating from two medical centres in Robina.
My special interest revolves around adult's emotional functioning in family and other relationships and their understanding of and use of rank and power in those relationships and everyday life.
