To other people you appear to be fine, however, on the inside, it feels like a completely different story. You get caught up in internal battles with your own mind, questioning your decisions, second-guessing yourself, overthinking things, and feeling lost, anxious, depressed. It's exhausting. You want to make changes and you are sick of feeling anxious, it is interfering in your life, your work, your relationships. You want things to be different. I can help you sort through the stories, the experiences that have led to this, and to change your old patterns, thoughts, and beliefs, and create the life that you want to live.

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 specialise in treating behavioural and emotional problems such as autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, anxiety, depression, PTSD, in children, adolescents and adults. I believe that working collaboratively and honouring clients' knowledge and experience are keys for change. I also have more than 20 years of experience in cognitive, educational and behavioural assessment of young people and adults.
We all go through tough and challenging times. Perhaps this is the first time you've struggled mentally or emotionally and your feeling overwhelmed, stressed and under resourced to know what to do. Maybe you haven't bounce back as well as you hoped. Perhaps your previous style of coping and managing is no longer working. Whether you are grieving, having difficulty in relationship or navigating change, I can help. What you need is somewhere to work through all these feelings, experiences, and new realities. A space to speak your truth, build new skills, express your feelings and reconnect with yourself, your desires and goals.
I have worked as a Psychologist for more than 20 years, with a diverse range of people in various sectors, including community services, corporate organisations, private practice and extensively in the higher education sector.

I seek to understand the broader context of wellbeing, working with you to connect with inner resources and strengths in addressing mental health concerns, life transitions and challenges.
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.
I have a special interest in working with adolescents and adults experiencing anxiety, imposter syndrome, depression, chronic health issues, grief and loss, life transitions (e.g. career, stage of life, migration), PTSD, OCD, tics and Tourettes. I am passionate about helping individuals live a life worth living based on their values. Some populations I particularly enjoy working with include people of colour, gifted individuals, young women, and creatives. In addition to providing individual therapy, I have a keen interest in cognitive assessments to identify gifted abilities or learning disabilities.
It can be difficult to reach out and seek help... the first step is often the hardest. To gain the most out of the therapy process it can be helpful to be motivated and committed to wanting something in your life/ relationships/ self/ circumstance or situation to be different. This helps you to stay clear about what you want to get out of the counselling process and stay focussed on your goals for change.
