Couples work is modelled on PACT, created by Dr Stan Tatkin, which is based on research in Attachment Theory, Neuroscience and the biology of human arousal.
Life can be hard, uncertain and confusing, and yet there is an expectation that we inherently know how to live and relate well. This is a fallacy. The realms of the personal are complex, made even more complex when two or more lives come together in relationship. Guidance, mentorship, support and education are necessary elements to navigating the vicissitudes of life and relationship. I therefore guide my clients (individuals, couples and other relationships) through a unique exploratory process of understanding, discovery and growth.

Individuals and couples , ethnicities, cultural backgrounds & sexual/gender identities of all kinds are welcomed.
With a Master of Professional Psychology Practice, I confidently support clients in navigating a wide spectrum of mental health issues ranging from anxiety and mood disorders to complex trauma, relationship and attachment concerns. My interest in psychology was born out of a natural curiosity of human behaviour and has evolved into a deep passion for helping people cultivate a sense of aliveness & vitality. I am voraciously curious about the human condition, and this translates to the therapy room where I am always eager to seek understanding of the human being sitting across from me: their stories, their urges, and their "why?".

As relational therapists we commit to providing attuned presence and a balanced alliance with you and your partner , to work with both the strengths and the challenges we identify in your relational patterning.
Our approach to relationship counselling assumes that what occurs in your relationship is co-created. When we shift from “your story versus mine”, we move from a focus on the individual to “the between” of your relationship. As you may have experienced, relationship patterns repeat, the same ideas and themes keep knocking on the door. With the support of your therapist you are invited to explore “the between”, to engage in a process that helps you to understand how you got here and to begin to experience your relationship differently.

I'm a family therapist who also works with couples and individuals, including children and adolescents.
Family problems from trivial to severe will challenge every family at some point. Family Therapy can feel like a real life saver, whether it’s adjusting to the teenage years, divorce, separation, managing conflict respectfully or grieving. Family members seek my help when they become stuck in repeating patterns of hurtful or harmful behaviour and have run out of ideas for solving problems. Family Therapy helps families, couples and teenagers to build closer and happier relationships and address challenges like addictions, mental illness, violence, eating disorders, self-harming, suicide ideation, separation and co-parenting.

In over 20 years as a therapist, I have worked with a wide range of clients and couples with many and varied issues. I work in a way that is strongly client, and emotionally focused. I have worked with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, substance issues, food disorders, grief, child-hood trauma, uncertainty around sexuality and gender, around identity and self confidence/esteem. I work well with clients who are looking to change their lives and who are open to exploring their issues; to challenge their thinking and to examine what isn't working for them and to take practical steps to shift beyond where they are now.

Psychotherapy is a profound tool and relationship which can provide psychological relief and growth for everybody. All clients are welcome, including those who might be experiencing acute suffering after a trauma or loss; as well as those who have been experiencing psychological challenges over many years, due to chronic relational issues, addictive or obsessive tendencies, eating disorders or the long term effects of adverse experiences.

I also work with individuals, couples and teens/young people.
Counselling is a place where you work through your story - what is confusing doesn't have to be. Before I became a counsellor I had a lot of lived experience. Still do. It can be challenging to make sense of things sometimes. And it doesn't have to happen all at once. I'm a Human Centred Counsellor and I pay attention to your cues. I've also been a fierce advocate for the clients that I work with and I love to see them thriving.

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 Northcote?
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 Northcote 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.
