About

I am a Clinical Psychologist with experience providing counselling and therapy to adults, adolescents and children. My approach is client-centred, placing strong value on the therapeutic relationship as a space where it is safe to laugh and cry, while learning how to respond differently to yourself and to others. Every person is unique and every situation is unique, so I utilise a variety of evidence-based therapies, tailoring therapy to you and your needs.
I specialise in trauma and traumatic reactions, big and small, because it doesn't always take a big-T trauma for our nervous system to be overwhelmed. Although EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) is my first love, the choice of therapy type will be determined in collaboration with you and your requirements.
Finding the therapist that is the "right fit" for you is an important first step in therapy. Feel free to connect with me and if I am not the right fit for you, I will try and help you find the person who is.
