About

I'm always grateful for the opportunity to provide support, as I'm aware of the bravery that therapy takes, being vulnerable in session is immense. All clinicians at the clinic I run aim to work in a non-directive, client-centred way, meaning the client sets their own treatment goals and we're just the support that holds difficult or overwhelming emotions where needed. This allows the client to drive their own therapy and shows them that they can create a better life. Please know, I'm not currently taking new clients, however other clinicians at my clinic are!
I work with adults and adolescents and I also run DBT based groups regularly, let us know if you are interested in the next one. Finally, I also complete cognitive and ADHD assessments.
I strongly believe the therapeutic relationship is the most important aspect of therapy. Clients can only begin processing their vulnerability when there is trust in the relationship. Therefore, I aim to be authentic, honest, and genuine in all of my work.

Hunter Psychological Services's Groups

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy Based Group

The DBT based group run by Hunter Psychological Services is a group that provides you with skills in regulating and managing overwhelming emotions, as well as helping you to learn how to navigate your relationships in a more helpful way. Clients that see a Psychologist (either at HPS or elsewhere) individually are more than welcome, however this is not required, as the group has been developed to help people either boost their individual sessions, or for those that simply need a "top up", or some quick skills based support.
