Open, Friendly, Non-Judgemental
Due to demand on service, I am not able to take new clients until August 2019.
I am an AHPRA registered psychologist trained in Counselling Psychology; I have extensive training in Relational Gestalt psychotherapy, in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and in Gottman Method Couple Therapy approach. I have had over 16 years experience working with clients presenting with mental health and psychiatric issues. My experience has seen me work in the government, healthcare, public and private sectors as a social worker and more recently as a psychologist. As a psychologist I have worked in a clinical inpatient and outpatient mental health setting with a range of psychiatric and mental health disorders, and in a private practice specialising in treating anxiety related difficulties. Most recently I have worked for a specialist LGBTQIA+ service. I have worked with clients from varied age groups, different cultural and social backgrounds, and extensively with the LGBTQIA+ community. I love a challenge, am passionate, friendly, egalitarian, and work with individuals and couples to assess their specific needs to tailor a suitable evidenced-based therapeutic strategy to achieve a higher level of wellbeing.
We can work together to understand how particular issues are impacting on you and reducing your ability for satisfying relationships with others. Common issues I work with include:
LGBTQIA+ related issues:
I am open to working with anything that impacts on having satisfying connections with others
We can work together to develop fulfilling and meaningful relationships, whether intimate or otherwise. I can also help with how to end relationships well.
Actually, I will work with anything that is relationship counselling related
