I use a variety of approaches to facilitate positive outcomes. I know that it is my ability to establish a supportive and effective relationship with you that makes change possible.
My work is influenced by Positive Psychology (strengths, capacity and positivity) and experiential learning from Psychodrama. I also find Acceptance and Commitment therapy and Cognitive Behavioural approaches very effective.
I have been a member of the Australian Psychological Society for 30 years and I adhere to the code of ethics of the society and provide high quality services.
My work involves facilitation, coaching and education. My interest is to provide you with the knowledge and skills that will enable you to have more satisfying and effective relationships and help you to improve your life and work.
