During my over 40 years as a psychologist, I have helped very diverse individuals and couples with very varied problems.
The problems I help with include the following: Relationship issues; anxiety, phobias, depression and anger; pain management; smoking cessation and weight management. I am an accredited couples counsellor, and have a graduate qualification in hypnotherapy from a program jointly administered by the Austin Hospital and Melbourne University Department of Psychiatry. I have a Pharmacy degree, which facilitates collaboration with medical practitioners about how best to help clients on anti-depressants and other psychotropic medications.

I specialise in anxiety, depression, stress, grief and loss, trauma, couples and women struggling with infertility. My approach is holistic looking at the physical, social, spiritual and emotional aspects. I attempt to ensure clients feel safe and comfortable before they are able to share what has happened to them. With my experience in this industry, I have trained and supervise counsellors. This has helped me to deepen my understanding of what clients need.

I understand that it can be difficult to make the decision to see a counsellor, especially when you feel so vulnerable. I am here to listen and gently encourage you to tell your story. I’m interested in finding out what’s happened to you, not what’s ‘wrong’ with you. Counselling isn’t about learning to think positively or exercising greater self-discipline, it’s about starting to really listen to what your instincts are telling you.

From time to time, we all face challenges and experience change throughout different stages of our lives. But for many of us, sometimes it might be more difficult than usual to cope or find our way. Perhaps you are feeling lost because the life you currently lead is not what you had imagined it would be? Or it could be that you are facing an overwhelming situation, or 'stuck' in a relationship that creates major stress. You may have been struggling with anxiety, depression, loss or other significant life transitions for some time, and now need help. At Safe Place Counselling, you do not need to deal with life’s challenges alone.

I work with couples who want to actively engage in change to help them gain insight into themselves and the world, using their emotional reactions, thoughts and feeling. I believe people attain the greatest well-being through self- and other-acceptance. Understanding repetitive, unwanted patterns helps people step out of the fray and gain a meta-perspective making us aware of different choices that can be made moving forward. I don't work with couples when there are serious issues of power and control, or interpersonal violence (physical or emotional). I do not write Court reports, reports or serve as an expert witness.

Hi, I specialise in relationship issues, stress and anxiety. There is nothing more upsetting than when we are not feeling emotionally connected to our partner . Some people report a gradual drifting apart while others can pinpoint an event that has damaged the relationship and some are caught in a cycle of conflict, Part of being human is our need to feel safe and understood by our partner , to know they are there for us when we need them. Whatever your challenge I will support you to re-connect, repair and deepen your relationship and or deal with stress or anxiety that impacts your contentment.

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 Hurstbridge?
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 Hurstbridge 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.
