About

I am a registered psychologist, and have experience working with a variety of clients within public and private settings. I utilise a combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), and Psychodynamic- and Schema-informed therapy. I can assist with mood disorders (such as anxiety and depression), adjustment issues, stress management (including improving emotional regulation, and impulsive and compulsive behaviours), interpersonal/relationship difficulties, and difficulties associated with prenatal, perinatal, and postnatal mental health.
I hope to help you develop a sense of curiosity about your emotional states and their origins. Together, I hope to help you embark on a journey of discovery, to build on self-awareness and strengths, as well as identify limits and vulnerabilities, in order to cast different perspectives on past and current struggles and experiences.
My therapeutic approach begins with the creation and fostering of an alliance between therapist and client that ensures a strong foundational basis for a journey of self-exploration. From there, an individualised approach with your goals for therapy is taken, with the care and understanding that is required to create a haven of psychological safety.
