About

I offer an eclectic and integrated approach to helping client's to successfully manage their lives. I am deeply committed to drawing-out the client's own innate potential to respond to their challenges. I firmly believe the 'obstacle is the way'. Rebates are available for clients with mental health treatment plans from their GP. More information available at www.stillpointpsychology.com.au
I am experienced in helping clients of all ages, from diverse backgrounds, and life experiences. My early career was as a military psychologist, and from this I was able to develop skills helping service personnel with trauma, adjustment issues, anxiety, skill development and relationship difficulties.
Psychotherapy works, you do not need to live in resistance and fear. If you are feeling the desire to reach out and connect with a mental health professional, I invite you to consider Stillpoint Psychology.
