I typically adopt a Schema Therapy approach.
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 draw from a variety of evidence-based therapies and have completed training in emotion-focussed therapy, schema therapy , cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), and trauma-informed therapies that have a neurobiological underpinning.
Sometimes we don't know exactly what we need help with, but we know something needs to change. You might feel anxious or sad without an obvious explanation; or have a desire to improve your self-esteem, or get over a painful break-up. You may have experienced trauma. Using a collaborative and empathic therapeutic approach grounded in evidence-based practice, I support you to make meaning of the feelings and thoughts that contribute to psychological and emotional distress. We work together to find new, adaptive ways of being that improve your quality of life, create positive coping habits, and break unhelpful relationship patterns.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Carlton?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

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 Carlton 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.
