Shame, guilt, anxiety, as well as other psychological or medical conditions, can profoundly affect how we experience sexuality and deeply impact or attach itself to the complexities of our personal history and life experiences.

Many people struggle to incorporate healthy lifestyles into day to day living. Most of us know the behaviours that are recommended however, there are many challenges - structural, economic and personal that impact on us on a day to day basis. The end result can be a feeling of being overwhelmed and behaviours and thoughts that we feel we cannot control. Although it is not always possible to change structures we can build personal resilience and learn to control thoughts, feelings and behaviours. I offer services to assist you to achieve your goals - by gaining control over your feelings, and building resilience in how you react.
Trying to manage your mental health on your own can leave you feeling frustrated and stuck. One of my skills as a psychologist is knowing how to best support you to grow a deeper understanding of yourself. Once you know what motivates your emotions and behaviours, you can develop a strategy to manage them.
I am passionate about partnering with people to help them tolerate extreme emotion, to learn and grow and be free to choose new behaviours. I have decades of lived and years of clinical experience with Alcohol and Other Drugs use and abuse and the traumas that so often lead to it and arise from it. I have understanding of complex PTSD and the Autonomic Nervous System and the ways our experiences get laid down in our systems and repeat themselves, often causing relationship upsets.
