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.

I have been working as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist in Private Practice since 2011. My aim is to create spaces of trust for clients to explore the intricacy of their own lives, to identify the fullness and complexity of their experience, to come to terms with themselves, and to release behaviour which no longer serves them. My work is Humanistic, Person Centred and Emotion Focused, and I use the integrative approaches of my training as entry points for us to language, feel, and honour, all that we carry deeply within us.

I am a Credentialed Mental Health Nurse (CMHN) by discipline with many years of experience working in public settings such as adult and adolescent psychiatric inpatient units, emergency/crisis services, community rehabilitation facilities, and community outpatient clinics. My experience as a clinician finds interest in the revelatory power of dialogical practice, driven by the subjective possibilities that emerge within transferential relations — particularly within the analytic rapport.

Are you looking to become a better husband or boyfriend? Have you recently gone through a break-up and you’re trying to make sense of everything? I help men who want to become better partners and communicators, heal from break-ups and lead happier lives. Many of the men I work with often come with the same doubts, anxieties and beliefs: “Why do we keep arguing?” “Sometimes I just don’t get why I do what I do.” “I’m trying and trying but honestly I just feel a bit powerless.” “I just don’t understand what’s gone wrong.” “Why can’t I just appreciate what I have?”

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.

I feel passionate about helping people make meaningful, sustainable, and healthy changes in their lives. I aim to work respectfully and collaboratively with people so that clients build their own independence and develop ways to manage life stressors more effectively, in addition to their own thoughts, feelings and behaviours. A comfortable, empathetic and supportive therapeutic relationship is also very important in my approach, and research shows that this is essential in best outcomes for clients. I generally work on a wide range of mental health and life issues and the approaches I work with are all evidence-based interventions.

If you are feeling overwhelmed, tired, hopeless or lacking joy; like your emotions are uncontrollable or that they do not match with reality; that your worry is getting out of hand or that there is no longer any point, then it might be a good time to seek some support. ​ We are social creatures, and despite what our modern society might have us believe, we all need human connection to function. Seeking support is a huge sign of strength – the strength to actually reach out and let someone in, in order to start the healing process. ​ If you can relate to this or if you have set yourself a personal development goal please reach out.
