Are you having trouble with your relationships? With partners, family, friends, or work colleagues? Do you find dealing with family conflict stressful? Perhaps you are wondering what is preventing you from feeling contented with life. And noting that you are anxious or stressed? Do you find you are irritable, snappy and impatient? Or just flat? Dissatisfied? Or just find yourself struggling with a general sense of malaise and not being able to pinpoint exactly what is wrong.
My attention is focused on individuals of all ages as well as couples.
I do both short-term counselling and longer term psychotherapy which is what is needed when people want to learn more about themselves and to live life more richly and with more flexibility.
I offer pre-marriage counselling for couples wanting to enter into a long-term relationship or marriage.
Existential, Interpersonal, Object Relations, Person Centred, Psychodynamic
As a counsellor I am available to listen and work out what professional advice is best needed for the particular client. Once the client and I have explored what is going on in that person's life, I offer suggestions for the next stage which may be to work on thoughts and feelings and build a sense of internal awareness.This is what distinguishes psychotherapy from counselling. I work psychodynamically and so look at unconscious forces and those aspects of an individual that are out of awareness
I have more than 12 years experience in private practice and in a community counselling service. I am a psychotherapist, trainer, and supervisor, and will work in the manner that suits you the individual client.
There is free parking in Lane Cove.
Medibank offers rebates for counselling and I am a Medibank provider.
I believe that often people want help with more than just changing the superficial things in their lives. I therefore try to offer my clients a different experience of a therapeutic relationship that gives them the opportunity to explore not only what doesn't work for them, but to get to know themselves at a deeper level.
