My experience has spanned a range of human services since 1990 and includes disability services, out-of-home care, rehabilitation, and adult and adolescent mental health. Thus my background covers many years of professional organisational experiences and knowledge
from the range of roles I have occupied, as well as what I have learned from my experience with the amazing people I have encountered (clients and colleagues) along the way.
I greatly enjoy discussions with people to understand the nature of their unique human experience, anywhere from their early life attachment patterns, through to the significant threads leading to their present experience. I believe psycho-education (especially the interplay of psychological and physical symptoms) plays a large role in understanding our experiences in life and how we respond to our world, and contributes significantly to our healing, understanding and growth.
Beyond psycho-education, I enjoy blending all the modalities of psychological enquiry in response to the experience a person brings to the session.
I am a warm, open and collaborative clinician with extensive experience and a passion for working with people across the lifespan (in particular, adolescents, adults and older adults). My goal is to support and help empower people to most effectively navigate and grow through life’s challenges and its inevitable ups and downs. I am genuinely curious about people’s individual stories, and what motivates them to grow, and supporting them on this journey. I have clinical experience in tele-health, individual and couples therapy.
My counselling experience covers a broad range of clinical presenting issues, including mood issues, anxiety, depression and stress; trauma, suicide and self-harm, and drug and alcohol issues. I also assist people to work through common challenges such as relationship and communication difficulties, sleeping problems, self-esteem issues, and burnout.
I enjoy the opportunity to build a strong therapeutic alliance with every person I meet, and my approach is person centered, and strength-based, and I tailor sessions according to the nature of each person’s presenting experience. I draw from a range of evidence-based modalities including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Eye-Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) for trauma related symptoms, Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT), Brief Solution Focussed Therapy (SFT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing, and mindfulness.
