I am a Clinical Psychologist with a doctorate in clinical geropsychology – in other words, the psychological changes associated with ageing.
I have spent time practising as a psychologist overseas, in addition to here in Australia, and as a Baby Boomer myself, I bring much life experience to my role as a Clinical Psychologist.
Although my client’s needs are varied, I find that their desire to change and get better is high. When you book an appointment with me, my role is to work with you on a practical level to assist you in achieving your goals at your pace, but with a lot of assistance and care.
I have undertaken much training in various therapeutic approaches, including in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Brief Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy and up to Level 3 in the Gottman method of couples therapy.
Above all else, I am a practical person; I believe you not only need to know what is going on, but also what you actually have to do to help yourself.
I provide support and guidance for a range of common psychological issues, such as:
- Alcohol and Drug use
- Post-Traumatic Stress
- Grief and Loss
- Men’s health
- Carer support
- Relationship Issues – couples counselling
- Work / Life Balance
My aim is to provide a safe environment for you as a client, where you can explore your issues and, with assistance, develop new techniques which you can use to change unproductive behaviours. My goal is that you will have a happier life, and reach your relationship, personal and life goals.
In particular I am passionate about assisting clients with couples therapy, in the area of men’s health, and treating depression and anxiety.
