Even though I have a long history of working successfully in most areas of Psychology I feel that I know less and less as I get older. Maybe that's what wisdom is and what draws me to the practice of Psychotherapy. It is a privilege to work with people no matter what brings them to me and each encounter is a unique learning opportunity for both of us. I support clients' determination to transcend their suffering and to learn how to experience the happiness we all deserve.

I have a long history of working successfully in most areas of Psychology however I approach each client with curiosity and compassion and this helps me to keep an open mind. It is a privilege to work with people no matter what brings them to me and each encounter is a unique learning experience for both of us. I support clients' determination to transcend their suffering and to learn how to experience the happiness we all deserve.
Experiential, Hakomi, Interpersonal, Mindfulness, Psychodynamic
I don't claim to be an expert since I believe my clients are the experts in their own lives. I feel more like a mid-wife who waits patiently, gently observing the labour until it is time to support whatever is emerging. At other times a more direct response is needed and I'm not afraid to say it like it is when appropriate. Although as therapists we have theories, research and tools to help us, I feel we need to respect the differences between people as well as our common humanity.
Member of the Australian Psychological Society for over 30 years.
Member of Hakomi Australia Association
During my career in Psychology I have worked in most of its branches, clinical, counselling, organisational, educational including post graduate teaching and supervision.
I re-trained in 1999-2002 in a form of Psychotherapy, Hakomi, quite different to my earlier training but consistent with the newly emerging integrative practices involving body, mind and spirit. This was a healing experience for me and has influenced the way I practise as a counselor and psychotherapist.
