CBT, Creative Arts Therapy, DBT, Gestalt, Marriage and Family, Meditation, Mindfulness, Narrative Therapy, Person Centred, Solution Oriented
I have trained in a variety of therapeutic approaches including, for example, person-centred therapy, family therapy, dialectical behaviour therapy skills (DBT), cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, solution focussed therapy/ brief interventions and relaxation strategies. However I prefer to use narrative approaches and collaborative practices influenced by the work of Michael White, David Epston, Art Fisher, Harlene Anderson and Johnella Bird among others.
As a degree qualified and accredited mental health social worker, I am professionally registered with and accountable to the Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW).
I regularly attend one-to-one clinical supervision and relevant continuing professional development training courses both in Australia and overseas.
I began working as a counsellor in 1989, my career includes many years of providing therapy and counselling people while employed in major organisations in Australia and overseas.
I've been in private practice as a counsellor and Medicare provider since 2008.
I have experience in working with stress, anxiety (including panic attacks), depression, relationship difficulties, 'sex addiction', sexuality & sexual identity concerns (gay, lesbian etc), body image, transition & adjustment (e.g. mid-life crisis) and drug & alcohol problems. I assist people to make changes in their lives and to resolve long standing concerns as well as more recent problems.
