Stress and trauma affect the way in which we all think and behave. Our mind often gets stuck in this response and it is difficult to think and behave the way we want to. I work with how the mind, brain and body responds to stress and trauma. I work from a whole person perspective in ways we can improve everyday mood, emotional responses and the impact our personal distress has on relationships.
I am an AHPRA Registered Psychologist with 21 years experience working with anxiety, depression and psychotic illnesses and the effect these have on mood regulation, psychotic experiences, personality, body image and eating habits and on use of substances as a coping strategy. Prior to Psych training I was a Registered General Nurse for many years.
I have witnessed how re-leaned calm can give people back their intrinsic potential and motivation to live the life they want.
