|Bio:||I am a registered clinical psychologist who offers individual, couples and family therapy. My main goal as a therapist is to help people process and make sense of their challenges, develop new insights and to make practical behavioural changes so they can reconnect to the important things in their life. I work to facilitate a therapeutic process which is guided by their hopes for change in partnership with my knowledge and experience of mental health. I adopt therapy practice from a number of different modes, including: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Family Systems Therapy and information gleaned from human physiology and neuro-psychology.
I have been a registered clinical psychologist for over 10 years and have worked across a number of different public health and private settings. I have extensive experience conducting mental health assessments and working with people dealing with a wide range of life problems. Some of the common presentations include:
Anxiety and stress related problems.
Depression and mood related problems (including anger/aggression)
Addictions – alcohol, drug, pornography
Relationship challenges (works with singles, couples and families)
Teenage mental health and development (12years +)
Grief and Loss
I am currently available to provide clinical supervision to other mental health practitioners.
