Announcement icon I am seeing clients face to face in Level 4 but also offering online sessions to clients.
I am a Clinical Psychologist in private practice, and work in a major trauma hospital. I have extensive experience with survivors of trauma, as well as in treating anxiety and mood disorders. I seek to understand the needs of each individual in order to best adapt therapeutic needs to the client's unique psychology and circumstances.
I have an interest in working with trauma survivors, such as those who have experienced sexual assault, accidents as well as chronic illnesses. I also focus on anxiety and mood disorders.
If you have experienced a major trauma, I am here to assist in helping you to make sense of the trauma, and to develop coping skills in the aftermath. I am also here to assist in developing understanding and coping skills in relation to anxiety and mood disorders.
