About

I am a Clinical and Counselling psychologist with over 30 years experience working extensively with Individuals, Couples and Adolescents. My areas of expertise include: Relationships and Interpersonal Issues; Anxiety/Depression management; Conflict resolution and Mediation; Self-esteem and Assertiveness Training; Stress Management; Bullying - School and Workplace; Gender/ Sexuality Concerns; Trauma/PTSD; Adjusting to Transitions and Life Change; Grief and Loss ; Anger Management; and Parenting Skills.
My treatment approaches for individuals are Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Client Centred Therapy and Acceptance Commitment Therapy, with elements of Mindfulness and Gestalt Therapy. I am Level 3 trained in Gottmans Relationship therapy.
I provide counselling face to face as well as online. This has been especially helpful to those living in rural and remote areas and want to see a psychologist with expertise and experience in clinical and counselling psychology.
