I have worked for a number of years in the specialist trauma services working with people who have complex PTSD and PTSD using a range of evidence based therapies including EMDR, Cognitive Processing Therapy, Narrative Exposure Therapy, Trauma Focused Cognitive Therapy and Compassion Focused Therapy.
My current favourite quote is "You are not Lazy, unmotivated, or stuck. After years of living your life in survival mode, you are exhausted. There is a difference" - Nahela Homer. It really resonates with me because therapy should be about helping you to shift perspective from that critical inner voice that tears you down and makes you feel distress (whether it's shame, guilt, anxiety, depression or anger), into a more balanced and compassionate perspective. You deserve to live a life you love, to work towards being who you want to be, or to do the things you want without fear or shame holding you back.

Seeking help from a psychologist could be overwhelming and stressful. It may be seen as a sign of weakness or suggest that there is something wrong with the person. My professional aim is to assist the person seeking help in a collaborative, compassionate and authentic manner, in a therapeutic space where personal issues are viewed as opportunities to discover personal strengths, to foster personal growth and improve quality of life. I am deeply committed to empower individuals in overcoming the social stigma associated with mental health issues and I value each person’s uniqueness during their engagement in mental health recovery.

Have you been feeling overly unhappy, depressed or anxious? Have you had panic attacks, issues with eating, loss of energy or exhaustion, sexual difficulties, relationship issues? Have you seen a psychiatrist or a psychologist and the treatment didn't "work"? Psychotherapy can help people change old patterns of actions, thoughts, feelings, and relationships. As you gain more self-awareness and self-understanding, you might feel more empowered to make life choices on your own terms. Many people experience not only a reduction of their symptoms, but can live richer and more fulfilling lives, even after they stop going to therapy.

Going to therapy takes guts. Often, it takes a person, or a couple, years to move from contemplating therapy to booking a first appointment. It’s not an easy process. But, what you get out of therapy is directly related to what you put into it. And I will match your dedication with mine. The process of healing and recovery is also one of becoming and realising. Therapy is self-development at its most satisfying. Yes, it takes courage, effort, and, often, a leap of faith. But, if you are ready to give yourself the gift of therapy, I am here to take that leap with you.

Therapy is a very personal experience so it’s important that you feel comfortable with your therapist and believe they’re a good fit for you. People will decide to see a psychologist for a range of different reasons... Often they’re experiencing some kind of stress, relationship difficulties, trauma or addiction… or sometimes they feel they just need someone to talk to. We start by talking about what brings you to the session. You may have clearly defined goals of what you’d like to achieve or, perhaps you’re not sure and you’re just trying to get a better understanding of yourself and your life experiences. Therapy is also about encouraging you to consider different ways of thinking, trying new strategies and learning new skills. It's ok if you feel that you’re stepping outside of your comfort zone. It’s not always easy to be in therapy, it takes a lot of courage to start, and to continue the process.

Often people have intentions and goals they are moving toward, but bumps in the road have them circling back into old habits or problematic ways of being. Some problems can be really hard to resist. I support people to look at things from different angles, uncover overlooked skills, offer new possibilities, help find strategies that work for you, and support you in connecting with what’s most important. I also offer support with parenting and emotion coaching for children.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Sydney?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Sydney specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
