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, as well as specialist clinical and hypnosis interventions as required in the context of individual therapy.
ACT, Dream Work, Ericksonian, Gestalt, Hypnotherapy, Jungian, Meditation, Mindfulness, 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 and hypnosis are my main therapeutic modalities, but I also use Gestalt, schema therapy and other approaches 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 assessment, 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 ACT, hypnosis, gender assessment, and GLBTIQ specialist work, as well as professional development in various schools of therapy, including ACT, mindfulness, hypnosis, and psychoanalytically oriented groups.
