About

I am passionate about helping people improve the quality of their lives by better managing their mental health. Maybe you have always struggled with things like worry, stress, low mood, or difficulty adjusting to change/loss. Or maybe this is your first experience of not being able to "fix it" yourself. Either way, there will always be a time when we need to look beyond ourselves for practical support to resolve a psychological issue. When we learn how to constructively deal with our mental health challenges, we feel more at ease, more energized, and better able to pursue those things in life that nourish us and enable us to thrive.
As a registered Psychologist I have completed over six years of university with theoretical and practical training in evidence-based practice of Psychology. I have also completed further studies including a PhD with a Positive Psychology focus investigating how to constructively cope with failures/setbacks. I have a particular interest in anxiety disorders.
My approach is very collaborative. We will work together to explore your problem issues and identify factors contributing to it. You will better understand what your problem is, what has caused it and what is holding you back from resolving it. I will involve you in a treatment program that makes sense to you, empowering you to achieve real improvement.
