About

Neurological conditions affect both the patient and their family. I offer my services to both. Neurological disorders are doubtless among the most frightening illnesses that human beings face. Knowledge is sometimes the only power there is against the vagaries of these ailments. That is where counselling from a specialist psychotherapist comes in. I will make an assessment of the patient’s condition and take a medical history. I will also work with the patient’s doctor to coordinate the psychotherapy with medical treatment. I offer sessions by Phone, Skype, FaceTime and ZOOM. Call me and let’s discuss possible therapeutic options.
I specialise in Dementia, Parkinson's, stroke and other neurological conditions, as well as chronic health conditions such as pain and acquired brain injuries. I have some 30-years of experience working in hospitals, hospices, and aged care facilities. I am currently associated with the Parkinson's Unit at the Concord Hospital in Sydney.
I am well qualified to help you based on years of clinical experience and formal education. I have a Bachelor of Arts (Psych), a Master of Counselling, a Master of Arts (Hons Research), and a PhD exploring the use of creative arts in the treatment of depression. I am a Registered Nurse, and a clinical psychotherapist focusing on neurological conditions.
