Carlton Psychology Services
Mobile 0423 157 009
I look for the uniqueness and potential in clients. I seek not only to help people resolve their current difficulties, but to equip them for the challenges ahead, empower them to more fully experience their lives, and help them discover their own truth. Therapy can not only help alleviate suffering, lead to growth and change and promote self-acceptance, but can also be an enlivening and great learning experience for client and therapist alike.
I work in Carlton, close to the Melbourne CBD. Clients can be referred to me by any GP for Medicare service; private health rebates are also available. I can provide individual assessments and reports for private use, including gender assessments with a view to commencement of hormones for gender transition or surgery, as well as specialist clinical and hypnosis interventions as required in the context of individual therapy.
ACT, Dream Work, Gestalt, HeartMath, Hypnotherapy, Jungian, Mindfulness, NLP, Psychodynamic, Transpersonal
I offer a sensitive, compassionate and flexible approach, and try to help clients through practical, experiential, and reflective processes of healing and change. ACT, mindfulness, psychodynamic therapy, hypnosis and trauma strategies are my main therapeutic modalities, but I also use Gestalt approaches, NLP, and other methods as appropriate. I strive to help clients develop purpose and meaning in their lives through exploring their values, personality, creativity and passions. With assessment including gender review, I seek to get to know and connect with the client as well as using more formal assessment approaches in order to best understand them.
I engage in regular individual and group supervision in hypnosis, trauma work, gender assessment and LGBTIQA+ specialist work, as well as professional development in hypnosis, NLP, trauma and psychoanalytically oriented groups. I have received supervision from psychologists, psychotherapists, psychiatrists and counsellors, and have trained postgraduate students and educated and supervised psychologists, community advocates and social policy makers.
I have worked as a Clinical Psychologist in public and private settings in both Australia and the UK. I have worked with complex families, children, adolescents and adults in psychology clinics, residential rehabilitation and public psychiatry. I currently work with adult clients in independent private practice. I also have a background in clinical research with adults and children. Much of my work is with highly sensitive and creative people, and LGBTIQA+ identified people. I work extensively with specific issues in this area including shame in this community, gender dysphoria and integrated identity, survivors of gay conversion practices, HIV issues, queer identities, and alternative sexual expressions/kink.
I work Tuesdays to Fridays at my Carlton rooms. Some after hours sessions available.
