Dr Loyola McLean

Dr McLean is a Consultation-Liaison Psychiatrist and Psychotherapist in public and private practice with interests in attachment psychosomatics, the psychophysiology of stress system disorders and the therapeutic consequences. She is currently working as a Psychotherapy Educator with the Sydney West and Greater Southern Psychiatry Training Network. Her recent PhD studied the mediating haemostatic and inflammatory links between depression and coronary heart disease. That research project nourished her interest in attachment theory as a theory of 'body mind and stress systems' and her research will continue in this area. Her aims are to explore the underlying psychophysiology and the paths to repair and to make attachment theory more user-friendly for clinicians and patients in order to foster more collaborative ways of understanding presentations and treatment goals and to promote integrated therapies.
