If you would like to book, please book via my website below, I have appointments available www.thepsychcollaborative.com My aim as a psychologist is to ensure you feel completely comfortable in taking the first step to seeking support. I have been told I have a gentle, warm and compassionate approach. Maybe you’re at a crossroads in your relationship, perhaps you are struggling with your mental health or maybe you just need a safe space to chat to someone who is completely objective. Therapy can seem somewhat clinical, so it is my priority to ensure you feel safe by providing a warm, confidential and judgement-free space for you.

NATIONALLY ACCREDITED MEDIATOR (NMAS) and COUNSELLOR. I can mediate a range of issues such as relationships, commercial, business and Family Court matters - divorce, separation, property settlement. My role as a mediator is to bring parties together to resolve their differences amicably without going to court, and hopefully reach an agreement which is acceptable to both parties. Everything in mediation has the highest level of confidentiality. The great benefit of mediation is twofold: one being affordable with no legal fees. The other is, mediation appointments are generally available without having to wait months.

When people seek healing, many come clutching a story that they and others may only have considered from one angle. Using Narrative Therapy, humour and a bit of poking, my skill lies in expanding the view so we can fully see what's going on and the influences that are keeping pain, worry or addiction alive. I have journeyed through many paths in my life, and am very comfortable talking about homelessness, child abandonment, sex work, redundancy, divorce, addiction, alcoholism, blended families and any other corners you too may find yourself backed into.

Do you feel like the people around you need you to be strong, but you feel like you’re about to break, or have already broken? Does a voice in your head criticise everything you do and leave you feeling miserable and alone? Are you feeling like you're different from everyone around you? You’re not alone, you’re not broken, and there is a way to change those feelings and to handle those pressures and fears. You might be looking for solutions and feeling trapped, or hopeless. You’re not trapped, and there is hope - you just need someone to share this with, and to help you see your way forward. That’s what I do.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Illawarra are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Illawarra then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

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.
