Within a respectful and supportive framework I work in partnership with you as an individual or as a couple. I work professionally to assist clients make sense of painful, problematic and frequently recurring patterns of personal difficulty in order to be more authentic with self and others.With solid clinical training, diverse work and life experiences, my areas of specialisation include: relationships and intimacy. sexuality and sexual identity, sexual abuse, trauma, and life transitions.
As a client when you initially come to talk I listen, listen. listen. It is so important for you to be heard, your story told in an uninterrupted manner. Sometimes, if required, I might sensitively question and affirm your reality, in order to gain a deeper understanding of what is behind your issue, and /or despair.
I attempt initially to understand where you are and where you would prefer to be in your relationships. We determine a course of action together. Most clients say they feel relief after the first session. Getting concerns, particularly sexual, out in the open with a qualified professional and finding out you are not alone in what your experiencing is a huge relief and brings a hope that things can be different.
EMDR, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Gestalt, Hypnotherapy, Imago Relationship, Inner Child, Marriage and Family, Mindfulness, Psychodynamic, Psychosexual
I have an holistic approach. After decades of experiential and academic learning, I utilise the psychodynamic modality. I initially trained in CBT that my BA in Psychology taught me, and where required EMDR, Kinergetics, Thought Field Therapy (Tapping), Hypnosis, Focussing, Gestalt, Ericksonian and other modalities.
I strongly believe therapy is centered around the needs of the client and is not a one size fits all profession.
I am guided by the Code of Ethics of my professional associations.
I work with all - regardless of gender orientation, culture, race and religion.
Born in England, I married and divorced twice and raised children. I worked for twenty years at the most senior levels of Australian companies, assisting in the selection of their CEO's and direct reports. Seven years ago I transitioned from the boardrooms to the bedrooms of Australia, and qualified with a Masters in Counseling, specializing in sex therapy.
I have studied with America's leading sex therapist and been fortunate in having Gina Ogden as a supervisor. I also studied extensively with The Couples Institute, have carried out advanced level Kinergetics, Thought Field Therapy and a Diploma in Hypnotherapy. My theory and practical knowledge were utilised fully when writing my book The Grown-Ups Guide to Dating & Mating.
