I work with men empowering them to achieve their best lives. As men we feel the weight of the world at times but it's actually courageous for us to seek counselling to become the best version of ourselves. We will work with your strengths and attributes to empower you to overcome any obstacle with strength and confidence. I have been on this journey myself and can understand the pain, frustration and feeling lost. I have been able to step into a new improved version of myself (better man) and now I am passionate about helping other men to feel happy, fulfilled and confident to achieve any goal they wish.

For reasons that I cannot explain, the more complex the clients needs, the more likely they are to find themselves on my doorstep. Commonly, I have clients tell me in their first session that 'they have many issues and no one else has ever been able to help them before' - this is generally an indication that we will build a lasting relationship. I am patient, very open-minded and laid back in my approach whilst still maintaining professionalism. If you fear therapy because of the overly clinical approach then you will find my way of forming a therapeutic alliance refreshing and endearing.

Do you struggle feeling like you are not a good person, partner, or parent? Are you going through a transitional phase of your life? Is performance anxiety getting in your way of competing? You are not alone! There are times we all feel like we are not enough or just can't get that balance in life but knowing that other people go through it doesn't help. You want action, you want a plan, and steps you can take to make that change. You want someone you can trust and talk to that is not involved or connected. That is where I come in.

I wholeheartedly believe in therapeutic healing through safety, compassion & acceptance in the present moment. If we are in distress, feeling lost, alone, sad, anxious or angry it can be hard to know whom to talk with or, what to talk about. Sometimes we don't want to talk at all to start with and, would prefer to do a creative/movement exercise to express ourselves. Maybe we know exactly what we want to talk about and explore, maybe learning new skills to integrate into daily life. I can be there to support you, whatever stage you are at.
Life can be challenging and we all experience difficult emotions and stress at times. Sometimes these internal experiences can have a significant impact on our life and goals. I am a clinical psychologist who is passionate about helping people manage their concerns and optimise their quality of life. I have experience working with a variety of issues, ranging from daily life stressors to complex psychological issues. When delivering therapy, I draw upon several evidence-based practices such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, EMDR, Family Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy and Motivational Interviewing.
Positive Young Minds was created to help children and adolescents understand and manage their mental health - in particular anxiety; and to investigate, understand and manage difficulties in the school environment. Using ACT and mindfulness I work with children and adolescents primarily aged 10-25 to develop positive coping skills so that they can lead calmer, more confident and connected lives.

I am a very capable and committed counsellor, and passionate about supporting clients to make a difference in their life through empowerment, reflection and understanding.

Life doesn't get any easier as we age, in fact in some instances they get harder. From dealing with life transitions such as retirement, moving into a retirement village or even a nursing home, to financial stressors, family relationships and loss of independence, these are all issues that are difficult to adjust to if you don't have anyone to talk to. Being able to relax and enjoy retirement and our older years, should be something we can all achieve, not just those lucky few.
If there is one thing I have learned over the 15 years I have been in practice it is that one therapy, one intervention, one mode of help will not suit every client. Every client is different and even the ones that believe they are complex or believe they might not be able to be helped are really just seeking someone to collaborate with. That's what I do with clients - collaborate to help them find a better way to navigate life, a way to feel better, a way to cope better. My clients are not a 'one size fits all', I see each one as an individual. As a clinician I see them as a person, not a process.
I am a Mental Health Accredited Social Worker and Accredited EMDR Practitioner, trauma informed therapist, working with people impacted by Complex PTSD; Complex and Acute Trauma; attachment trauma; historical and recent sexual assault and family violence and relationship issues. I am very much an outcome focused therapist and work with individuals to achieve effective and positive results. Understanding the importance of a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship, I am able to put people at easy and provide a space without judgment, open and honest.
