Formally I am a counsellor and psychotherapist, working both in private practice and the public mental health and addiction sectors.
My approach to treatment takes its direction from experience, both in the lived sense and specifically in terms of psychoanalysis (having undergone an analysis and formation as an analyst). My practice pays particularly close attention to the person him or herself, the dynamic cultivated in the session, and am far less interested in peripheral issues such as diagnosis.

Seeking therapy is never too early or too late in life. Most of us develop skepticism and may avoid therapy. In the majority of cases, however, you will find that through therapy you can improve your life and relationships, as well as control and comprehend your anxiety. You will be able to alter unhealthy coping mechanisms, such as substance abuse and sexual validation. There is no requirement to return, but there will always be a genuine desire to assist you with your issues.

The Mind Clan is a Melbourne-based clinic offering psychology and counselling services for young adults aged between 18 and 35 years. Our psychologists and counsellors have specific experience and training in working with young people. We understand how difficult it can be for young people to express and share their thoughts and feelings with others, therefore our team work especially hard to tailor our treatment approaches to ensure young adults feel comfortable, supported, and safe to explore their deepest fears and concerns.

I create a safe and open space for my clients to therapeutically explore their issues, challenges and concerns. My ideal client is someone who is open to exploring the connections between their trauma and life experiences and how this has impacted their lives in positive and negative ways. I like to work with clients that are action and goal oriented, as I like to set homework tasks and brain training exercises to re-wire their thinking in a healthier and more functional way. I am very conversational and my clients like this approach to discussing areas of concern to them.

From time-to-time we all have issues going on in our lives that feel overwhelming, confusing and too hard to deal with on our own. At the same time, for various reasons, it often feels as if there is no one there we feel safe enough with whom we can share our burdens. Whether it's a messy divorce, the death of a loved one, a traumatic experience, an existential crisis about the meaning of life, or a difficult decision that has to be made - it can be hard to figure out what to do or who to turn to for guidance.

You may have come to this site because you feel stuck – because you are not moving in the direction you most want to. You may feel aspects of your life could be better, or you may be dealing with problems that feel overwhelming. These feelings may be related to your work, relationships or health, or they may be about your attitudes and feelings toward yourself. You may not know what is wrong or why you feel the way you do. Whatever the issue, I hope I am able to help.

A psychoanalytic therapy is based on talking, which purpose is to learn about oneself. The aim is to find your own voice and your own place. The symptom is not deemed as a mistake, but rather a clue to that person's individual truth. This approach aims to give you time to think more deeply about the causes of your symptoms and build your own unique solutions

Few sail through life without encountering obstacles of one sort or another. For the most part we adjust to challenges or emotional upset using our own internal healing systems. Occasionally though, we just can't find a way through the pain and can't understand what went wrong. At these times it is really helpful to talk with someone who is trained to notice the emotions behind your words, and it is by noticing these emotions solutions to your troubles can be found.
