About

The problems I help with include the following: Relationship issues; anxiety, phobias, depression and anger; pain management; smoking cessation and weight management. I am an accredited couples counsellor, and have a graduate qualification in hypnotherapy from a program jointly administered by the Austin Hospital and Melbourne University Department of Psychiatry. I have a Pharmacy degree, which facilitates collaboration with medical practitioners about how best to help clients on anti-depressants and other psychotropic medications.
My approach is oriented towards problem-solving, and often entails Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy, Hypnotherapy and liaison with the client's GP. I offer in person, telephone and zoom consults. Clients undertaking hypnotherapy often record the session for home use. I offer a no-obligation fifteen minute free appointment.
During my over 40 years as a psychologist, I have helped very diverse individuals and couples with very varied problems. I am supportive, and very creative in my problem-solving. My personal interests include research in immunology (a field in which I am published), classical singing and animal welfare.
