The cornerstone of psychological health is healing, awareness and flexibility of the ways in which we relate to ourselves, the environment and each other. Therapy can range from targeting what can be seen as specific problems to an open-ended adventure of self growth.

As a registered clinical psychologist I draw upon a range of evidence-based methods tailored to the individual. I can help you explore difficulties and find new ways of experiencing problems and choosing solutions.

There is a welcome space for playfulness in therapy as well as compassionate, here-and-now focus on the emotional snags that generate unhelpful patterns of thinking, feeling, relating and behaving. This work may include resolving unfinished business from the past to access the vitality that is available to you now.

My approach includes Internal Family Systems (IFS), Gestalt Therapy, and Mindfulness based therapies, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I also utilise Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR).

I have experience in treating a wide range of difficulties including:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Relationship issues
  • Addictive behaviours
  • Stress
  • Grief
  • Phobias
  • Trauma
  • Anger
  • Shame
