About us

The Glow Centre is a private allied health practice in Kenmore, in Brisbane’s western suburbs.

The Glow Centre was originally established in 2013 as Melissa Kent Psychology, by clinical psychologist Melissa Kent in Melbourne, Victoria.

Melissa and the practice relocated to Brisbane in 2016.

The practice has grown steadily since then, establishing a reputation for excellence in building relationships with clients and other services in the community, and achieving excellent outcomes for its clients.

Commitment to excellence in outcomes

At The Glow Centre, we’re committed to creating and maintaining the optimal conditions for our clients to get the best possible outcomes during therapy. We have a number of processes involved in striving for excellence in clinical outcomes, including:​

  • Clarifying each client’s goals for therapy and regularly reviewing them to ensure we are focusing on what the client wants to

  • Developing a shared understanding of the factors contributing to each client’s current problems and how they developed over time. We call this a “shared formulation”

  • Helping each client choose a therapy approach that is backed by scientific research, and feels right for the client

  • Tracking clients’ progress over time to make sure they are improving

  • Creating a culture of feedback – encouraging clients to share if something is not working for them, if they would like us to do something differently, or if they are not improving as expected

  • Responding to feedback by discussing concerns and options for moving forward

  • Collaborating regularly with important others involved in each client’s life, such as partners, families, carers, other supports, and other professionals

  • Regular peer review and supervision.
