About

I am a clinical psychologist typically working with clients with chronic mental illness or long term difficulties that appear to form a life pattern (e.g., persistent difficulty with maintaining employment/relationships, long standing low self esteem). I have had varied experience with different client groups, working within public mental health, assessment clinics, student support and private practice. In each of these settings my aim has been for my clients to feel heard, increase their self-understanding, and gain hope toward their improvement.
I'm really committed to understanding each client's unique story and how their difficulties have come to be. From there I like to create a tailored treatment plan, working with my client to establish what a better life might look like for them specifically. I typically adopt a Schema Therapy approach.
I understand it can take a lot of courage to make that first phone call to a psychologist, and that finding a psychologist that you 'click with' can be hard. I do encourage potential clients to contact me with any questions they might have, before they consider booking an initial appointment.
