About

Therapy can be beneficial when something has challenged our usual ways of coping or because of an awareness that something in our lives doesn't feel right. Triggers might include anxiety, anger or low mood, illness such as cancer or a heart condition, increased stress, relationship problems, bereavement, or a life transition. You might be looking for emotional support as well as a "road map" and some "navigational skills" to help find the best path for you.
I have many years experience in hospitals and mental health centres. Breast and ovarian cancer, blood disorders, autoimmune disorders, cardiac and respiratory problems and menopause are areas of special interest. I have particular expertise in the treatment of anxiety, hot flushes, fear of cancer recurrence, low body-esteem, low self-esteem and depression.
Reaching out to a psychologist is a big step. Most people gain something helpful from the experience. Please contact me for a brief, free phone consultation to see if I might be a "good fit" for you. (If you are a patient at Perth Breast Cancer Institute, you can access bulk billed sessions, contact (08) 6500 5576). For all other patients, a fee is charged.
