About

Welcome to Brisbane Mind & Body Clinic. I’m a Registered Psychologist with 20 years’ experience working with adolescents, adults, and families who have presented with mood disorders, anxiety disorders including obsessive-compulsive disorder, relationship breakdown, work conflict, family crisis, trauma, PTSD, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia. I have a special interest in women's health and the interactions between mind and body in disorders such as post-natal depression and anxiety, together with the stress that accompanies major lifestyle transitions.
I work from a psychodynamic approach focussing on a client's family history, relationships & significant events, to gain an understanding of their individual responses to trauma and life stressors. I utilise aspects of Schema Focused Therapy, ACT and CBT to examine the schemas and beliefs about self and others that have developed through life.
I believe that a warm, compassionate approach and respect for a client's story, assists them to develop understanding of themselves and be supported to adopt coping strategies to restore their overall physical and mental health.
