Are you feeling anxious, stressed, confused, emotionally overwhelmed? Does life seem overwhelming, unfair, sad, unfulfilling, directionless, hopeless? Do you simply want more from life? You’re not alone. I endeavour to understand what is important for you, which means that I don’t have a one-size-fits-all approach. Using empathy and non-judgement, I listen to understand what life is like for you and to ‘get’ you - what you are thinking and feeling, how the events of life have impacted you, and what you want and need. I create a safe space to be open and real about what you are experiencing.
My clients suffer from a range of complex issues including family and relationship breakdowns, feeling stuck in a rut, and difficulties coping with life, and especially stress. This may lead to poor coping mechanisms such as using alcohol and drugs to escape unhappy situations. You as the client are the expert in your life, my role is to help you make sense of it in a way that you feel supported and heard. Together we work on new ways for you to live a better life and one you deserve.
“The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are" said Carl Jung. We are all born with unique gifts and potential. My believe is that, despite the trauma, loss and disappointments that you have suffered, you have the ability to heal and live a meaningful life. I love working with people that are committed to change and are ready to embark on a journey of self-discovery and healing. I consider it a privilege to be part of such a precious process and I offer my full commitment and genuine care to each client I work with. I help people to recover from substance abuse issues, trauma, depression, anxiety and life transitions.

In this fast-paced world I offer you a safe space to slow down and be heard. Together we explore your unique experience and discover what makes you feel, think and behave the way you do. You will better understand yourself and make meaning of your life. Key focuses are on repatterning beliefs and behaviours, integrating healing, and creating sustainable change.
Are you suffering a mental health condition and need intervention and support? Or are your experiencing interpersonal conflict at work or workplace bullying? Perhaps you are going through a relationship break up or divorce or struggling with family dynamics. Perhaps you need strategies in dealing with your child's emotional outburst or challenging behaviours or simply need a child assessment to identify any learning difficulties/ADHD/ASD symptoms? Or you may simply be feeling a little lost with little direction and clarity. If this is you, then make a change today and reach out and speak to one of our clinicians.
Do you feel 'stuck' and overwhelmed, anxious or in emotional pain? Perhaps you know it is time to make changes, to create more harmony and connection in relationships, both with yourself and others? With care and empathy, and at your pace, we can explore your experiences, take apart the messy knot of problems, identify your strengths and options - and develop strategies to reach your goals. I also work with couples to repair ruptures and build loving, secure partnerships. When you feel ready to heal from pain, fear, shame, resentment, anger or grief that is getting in your way, and get 'unstuck', call me and we can get started.
I am a highly-skilled relationship psychologist & sex therapist with over 20 years of professional experience seeing clients in private practice. I support couples through relationship issues, infidelity, lack of intimacy and communication problems. I am highly skilled in the psychological side of sexual difficulties such as low libido, orgasm difficulties, physical pain during sex, performance anxiety or ejaculation problems. I work with complex trauma using a trauma-informed approach to process sexual, physical and emotional abuse. I aim to create safety, grounding and a centred connection within which consolidates your healing.
Does it feel like you’ve never been able to move on from your trauma? Although you may be in a safe place now, you might continue to feel as if you’re in the past. Often people who’ve survived a traumatic situation, such as child abuse, a physical assault, or politic violence, continue to be impacted by what they’ve been through. Many people I work with seek counselling because they suffer from symptoms such as depression, bad memories, nightmares, self-blame, and high anxiety in everyday situations. With support and time, they’re able to heal from their symptoms, so they can feel safer and more at peace.
I am a calm, compassionate, and non-judgmental individual and couple therapist. I work to develop relationships of deep trust and understanding with you. I have a great deal of experience helping people overcome complex and persistent problems. I will never give up on you. I will hold the hope for you even if you are feeling discouraged or hopeless. As a nurse practitioner as well as a psychotherapist, I can prescribe psychotropic medication if needed. I can provide medicare rebates for every session because I am also a nurse practitioner.
Do you often feel like you are surviving instead of thriving? If you feel stuck in anxiety, depression, relationship issues, or if you battle with addiction, you are not alone; and there is something you can do to start feeling better. Integrative therapy can help you get unstuck and heal painful dynamics within yourself and your relationships.
Are you feeling like you need a little extra support at the moment? Or maybe you are interested in personal growth and managing stress? There are so many little ways to feel better in the moment. I use tried and tested stress management techniques which are backed by the latest scientific research to help you to be more resilient and love the life you live! Working with your individual innate strengths and abilities you can achieve a greater sense of wellbeing and deal with whatever comes your way.
I am a compassionate, relatable and non judgemental therapist. I love the process of helping people to understand and overcome the complexities and challenges they face in their daily lives. I have over 30 years experience working as a mental health practitioner and psychotherapist, and 10 years experience as a meditation teacher, mindfulness practitioner and practising buddhist. I understand that every person is unique and requires a personalised approach to healing. Whatever changes or problems you are navigating, my priority is to create a warm and open space for you to share and work through your experiences.
The uncertainties undoubtedly affect your mental health, and building resilience can protect you from dysfunctional behaviours. Learning to use your inherent strengths and values to handle problems can be an asset. At Mindworksclinic, you become aware of your best qualities and provide you with most components you desire to reset, reconnect, and nourish to live a balanced and meaningful life.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Narrabeen 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 Narrabeen 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.
Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.

You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Narrabeen, or Child Psychologists in Narrabeen.
Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Narrabeen psychologists specialising in EMDR.
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 Narrabeen 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.
