With a foundation in both CBT and Psychodynamic approaches, I now use EMDR to enhance the progress made. EMDR helps people cut through irrational thoughts and mental clutter and to learn to listen to their own inner wisdom.

EMDR is quick and effective and leads to positive personal growth.
As a member of the Australian Psychological Society, I meet profressional standards in terms of Confidentiality and Privacy. I specialise in EMDR Therapy, a best evidence therapy. I am an accredited EMDR Consultant and Facilitator. To stay up to date with new therapy techniques, I undertake ongoing professional development both here and overseas. I am a registered psychologist, and am registered for health funds, Medicare, Workcare, TAC, Victims of Crime, and Veterans Affairs.
