In my role as a clinical psychologist I will listen to you, the expert in your own life, to guide us in your treatment goals. Therapy can be short term and specific, or you may wish to have a safe and contemplative space to explore re- occurring themes in your life. You may need to examine and reset patterns of behaviour so your family/relationships can flourish and enjoy wellbeing, or you may be a performing artist or student struggling with performance anxiety, perfectionism and goal setting.
I work with adults who are seeking to find meaning, direction and self growth in their lives. They may be going through stressful life events, major milestones in their relationships or health, changes of roles, and other life adversities.
I provide evening and Saturday morning sessions. I specialise in supporting clients through major changes in their life eg. a new relationship, challenges in an existing relationship, end of a relationship, job loss, bereavement, diagnosis of a serious illness. As a male counsellor clients have said that this brings a different perspective on clarifying their issues. With nearly 20 years and 6,000 sessions experience I have worked with individuals and couples, locally, interstate, and overseas who are experiencing unexpected shifts in their life circumstances. I offer face-to-face and Zoom sessions.
People come to therapy because they want to help to live a better life. They want things to change but are not quite sure how to make these changes. They often express themselves as feeling quite "stuck". I see symptoms such as an addiction, an eating disorder, depression and anxiety as not merely events to be removed by magic words or medication , but as indicators that the way the person is living their life is unsatisfactory to them. They may lack the insight that could help them live a more fulfilling life; to be able to make healthier choices or to simply lead a less chaotic or dramatic life.
In life, we all face challenges within ourselves and with others. To many of us, seeking someone to share emotional and relationship difficulties does not come easily. It requires support and courage to do so. As a society, we are finding that gaining support from a Psychologist or Psychotherapist can facilitate a life enriching experience, resulting in making pathways to desired changes or growth. The Psychologist at the practice will work collaboratively with you in a respectful, caring and accepting manner to help reach your goals.
We all want to lead fulfilling lives, regardless of our situation. It's my passion to help you learn strategies to conquer the challenges you face. Sometimes, it takes courage just to get through each day, & this is where the most impressive changes can occur. I want to help you gain a better understanding & awareness of yourself & what you are capable of. By nurturing change within therapy, I hope to help you avoid feeling that life is "just happening to me" & instead feel empowered. Whether it's a mental health issue, life transition, or coping strategies, I am here to support you towards a life of balance, joy & well-being.
I am a registered psychologist with extensive clinical experience working in a diverse range of community mental health settings, including adult and acute mental health, child and youth mental health and transcultural mental health.

If we are left alone with our problems, we can get into a downward spiral. Sharing your concerns with me or with another professional will help you to assess and address them. You can go further in life by unloading some of the emotional weight you have been carrying for so long. Let me help you improve your life.
What makes love last? I have spent the last 20 years focussed on this question. Having an amazing relationship is not a myth or a unicorn. It simply requires focussing your efforts on increasing connection and learning how to effectively communicate your love, desire and commitment to your partner. My passion is simply this - helping couples fall back in love again. We all face challenges in our relationships, whether it’s communication or connection problems, sex and intimacy or more catastrophic issues like an affair or violence. If you need help to have the relationship or marriage you long for, call me now.
Are you fed up with family or relationship issues? Maybe it's the lack of intimacy, or piled up resentment, constant arguments or negative communication patterns that are getting too much? Do you feel talking to someone would bring you more clarity on what to do next? Clients report feeling safe and getting new practical insights and clarity on what previously bogged them down. Together we look for any underlying trauma, negative patterns and inaccurate beliefs that are hiding in the background and then we create a plan according to your values and needs. We can do this in individual and/or joint couple and family sessions.
We can all have times in our lives when things can seem unmanageable, whether it is within our family or close relationships, divorce or bereavement, or our health, our work or in coming to terms with difficult events that have happened either recently or in the past , which still don’t feel resolved. You are not alone, as human beings we all have difficult times. It is a brave decision to try to resolve those issues in the best way you can. A counsellor is not there to judge you, or to give you text book solutions. They are there to help and guide you towards the solution that is right for you.
“I am so looking forward to getting to know you as a unique individual, and working together to create the life you wish for. I believe that creating sustainable change is only possible when working with people holistically. I have always cringed at traditional, clinical styles of therapy, so instead I am committed to treating you as a real person and working together to help you live your best life. I love it when people take a proactive approach to their mental health. There isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t appreciate how much of a privilege it is to get to know my clients and work together with them in a meaningful way"
