PERSONAL DETAILS AND INTERESTS (03) 9820 5577
I work to create strong, supportive relationships, which allow people to explore their experiences and struggles in a safe and non-judgmental space. I provide intervention that is collaborative, and tailored to each person’s individual goals.
My style of therapy is supportive and accepting. I draw on a range of therapeutic techniques in my practice, which include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness, and Interpersonal Therapy. The supportive nature of therapeutic relationships is of great importance to me, as is allowing a person to feel free to explore their thoughts, emotions, and behaviour without judgment. A psychology session can be intimidating, so my primary aim is to develop a level of rapport that is comfortable and safe.
EXPERIENCE (AREAS OF EXPERTISE)
I have experience working with adults and young adults in a range of issues including depression and anxiety (including social, panic, specific phobias, and OCD), cancer and chronic health issues (patients, family and carers), grief and loss, interpersonal and relationship issues, self-confidence and self development, life adjustment and stress.
I have worked to help many people develop greater insight, understanding, and compassion for themselves. I provide intervention and support that is collaborative, respectful, and tailored towards each person’s needs and goals.
