Australia head coach Eddie Jones has acquired the services of sports psychologist Corinne Reid to help the Wallabies in their preparations for the upcoming Rugby World Cup in France.

Reid had already worked under Jones with the England side ahead of the 2019 Rugby World Cup which saw the side reach the final of the tournament before they lost to the eventual winners Springboks.

Winger Andrew Kellaway heaped praises on Reid and her consultancy sessions after she joined the Wallabies camp in Gold Coast last month.

"We've been working with Corinne Reid, who has been fantastic," Kellaway told AAP.

"She's a very sharp lady, she brings a real edge.

"She's been fantastic on a personal level and for us as a group, offering insights from her experience, which has been extensive."

Citing the number of close games that the Wallabies lost last year including the Bledisloe Cup match in Melbourne, Kellaway said efforts are being taken to handle the pressure situations better.

"We've talked about understanding what leadership entails and then how that's applied in different situations," the 21-Test outside back said.

"We've talked about that being a real point of difference for us.

"I think if we'd gotten that right in the past maybe some of those tight results go in our favour and it's something that Eddie brought to our awareness.

"It's been a really cool experience to see these things through a different lens."
