Once you know exactly ‘what’ to do you will quickly regain control, find your feet, and move forward. I have over 30 years experience helping people and have been a consultant in charge of a major hospital Psychology Clinic. I have also worked in an Anxiety Disorder Clinic, and Family Therapy Clinic. This level of expertise allows for accurate diagnosis and personalised treatment. I employ practical, tested methods. When you are under stress it is easy to fall into the trap of thinking that you are powerless, and that this is just the way things are. You will start to believe, “I’m not as capable as I once was"

I'm a clinical psychologist in private practice with particular expertise in LGBTQIA+ wellbeing. Alongside my focus on LGBTQIA+ mental health, I'm interested in working with anyone looking to learn skills to manage difficult thoughts, feelings, and experiences.

I am a Gestalt psychotherapist and a psychologist with 25 years of experience in the field of mental health. My work is based on respectful exploration of client’s experience in the here and now, including our ongoing psychotherapy relationship. We look together at patterns of emotional reactions and behaviours, new (yet) unfamiliar ways of being oneself and being with others, and possibilities for change and growth. My interest in Gestalt psychotherapy reflects my passion for a deeper understanding of psychological and emotional well-being and satisfactory human relationships.
As a therapist, I understand the need for warmth and acceptance. This is the foundation of a therapeutic relationship where people can show up with aspects of themselves that are problematic and unhelpful without judgement. I can relate to very human uncomfortable and undesirable behaviors, feelings and beliefs about ourselves. Through consistent support, compassion and curiosity, positive change becomes possible.
My approach to therapy starts and ends with what you are hoping to get out of the experience. Through an ongoing discussion between us, I will aim to understand how you wish to navigate your life more effectively. We will then work to develop greater insight into the nature of your challenges and practice skills that will help you move towards your goals and values. Through this process, we will work on lowering distress and improving your ability to function in difficult situations, instead of focusing on diagnostic labels.

Undertaking therapy is a very personal experience.

So many people feel lonely and disconnected. This can have many causes - childhood trauma, bullying, there are numerous factors. This results in anxiety, depression, sometimes suicidal thoughts. I value people beginning to see their own self worth, to recover from anxiety, depression trauma, whatever has caused them problems. Wonderful to see people starting to cope better with life, to become fully alive and be able to have meaningful relationships. Whatever is causing you suffering doesn't need to continue, do the work and start to recover.
I am a registered psychologist who works with adolescents and adults. I pride myself on making all clients feel welcome and comfortable in the therapeutic space. I like to take the time to deeply understand each individual client in order to cater my therapeutic approach to the individual. I see the client as the expert in the room and tap into their knowledge of themselves and their presenting issues to collaboratively work through and understand the issue together. I endeavour to help clients develop long lasting strategies and insight into themselves to be able to use and apply outside of the therapeutic space.
