There are times when we struggle with difficult feelings or experiences. We may feel that we have been unhappy for a long time yet nothing that we have tried seems to work. At other times we may want to make sense of how life came to be what it is and to explore ways of doing it differently. Whether we need to heal or to grow, we benefit from therapy with a skilled and committed professional who will support and guide us in working through life issues.

I have trained in a number of psychotherapy modalities so I can be flexible in my clinical approach.
I make a point of matching the style of my work to each individual and their needs, rather than imposing a particular clinical approach on them. I support my clients in creatively exploring whatever issues they bring to therapy at their own pace and working out solutions to their life difficulties that suit their individual circumstances.
I'm careful to approach any potentially traumatic experiences gradually so I focus on helping people develop emotional resources that enable them to face difficult issues without becoming overwhelmed. I see psychotherapy as a vehicle of healing and growth that enables us to realise our human potential.
Regular clinical supervision.
Ongoing professional and personal development
Attendance of professional development events
I have extensive experience in working at government and non-government agencies with people of different ages and from various backgrounds on a wide range of issues. I worked as a sexual assault counsellor for about 13 years which lead me to develop a special interest in treatment of psychological trauma including developmental and complex traumas. I also specialise in treating Borderline Personality Disorder and depression.
