About

I work with anxiety disorders, depression, addictions, trauma, relationships and sexuality. I self-identify as a gay man and enjoy working with the LGBTQ+ community. I only work by Telehealth. My approach to therapy is mainly based on a model called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), which focuses on learning to let go of unhelpful thoughts, being present with difficult emotions and connecting to your values; the things that really matter to you.
I completed my doctorate in clinical psychology at University College London in 2003. I previously worked in sexual health services in London, community mental health services in Auckland, student counselling at the University of Auckland and as a forensic psychologist in Sydney. I have worked online with The Skype Clinic since 2012.
