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 am experienced in a range of therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Therapies, Psychodynamic and Existential therapy.
It is said that we live in an ‘age of anxiety.’ It is not only you or me that experiences anxiety and depression. Mental health issues challenge most of us at some time in our lives. We need to develop resilience and resolve in the face of uncertainties, anxieties and challenges. This enables us to grow, flourish and develop practical wisdom. To face the challenges of life on our own is difficult. It is helpful to recognise that we need the support of significant others. As a psychologist, I provide a secure environment in which to turn your mental health concerns into opportunities for well-being

You can expect a trauma informed approach that is psychodynamic focused meaning that the core of our work is a relationship based on collaboration, choice, safety and trust that enables the exploration of emotional and mental processes, and social factors that might be restricting you from living your best life.
Clients present with difficult life circumstances, affecting them in the present or the past, rippling into the connection with themselves and their connection with the world, the persons in their life and social structures such as school or work. Low self esteem, fear, worry, sadness or anger are just some of the strong forces that effect people. Clients can feel overwhelmed or unsure about where to begin. I provide a safe, non-judgemental space that gently explores these forces, working towards self-directed goals to improve self connection, interpersonal relationships and the interplay with their surrounding social structures.

Today, many men are confused about our role and relevance in society. A clear sense of manhood, is I believe, critical to healthy relationships between men and women; men and other men; and obviously men as parents. I believe that my personal experiences are relevant here. Over many years, as parent, partner, friend and colleague, I have learned from my many mistakes and now feel that in a non-judgmental and collaborative way, I have something to offer both men and women in this regard. I believe that therapy is the best way to find out about oneself, that we are all unique and that each person’s life pathway is intensely personal

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy in Saint Leonards, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
