PERSONAL DETAILS AND INTERESTS
My therapeutic approach is firstly to hear your story and understand what you are going through without judgement. Trust is an incredibly important factor for me, so that you feel like you are an equal part of your therapy – after all, you are the expert of ‘you’!
Otherwise, I use evidence-based practices such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Narrative Therapy (NT) to tailor my approach to help my clients understand, and work through, their problems as unique individuals and not as part of a general diagnosis.
I am a registered psychologist and clinical psychology registrar. I am also an academic at Deakin University, where I teach, research, and write lectures for clinical and cross-cultural subjects.
EXPERIENCE (AREAS OF EXPERTISE)
I have studied, practiced, and researched interstate and internationally, working in locations such as rural Queensland, Adelaide, and Osaka, Japan. My current research project will also be taking me to Prague to present on Indigenous Australian issues at the International Congress of Psychology when the pandemic is lifted.
Generally, I am experienced in mood disorders such as Depression, and anxiety disorders such as Phobias and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. However I also have had specific training and experience with the following:
- Student/Academic concerns,
- Alcohol and other drugs (especially Methamphetamine addiction),
- Disability (including Autism Spectrum Disorder),
- Performance Arts related issues, and
- Cross Cultural Psychology (including Indigenous Australian culture).
