WHAT IS PSYCHOLOGICAL COUNSELLING

Psychological counselling can assist us when life's challenges feel overwhelming and gives us the tools to work through these problems. 

I'm a registered psychologist and my current work specialises in family violence related issues and individuals/families in crisis e.g. homelessness. I have a particular interest and experience in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder and Bipolar Disorder. I treat a range of issues including (but not limited to):

  • Depression and Bipolar
  • Relationships Individual
  • Court Report / Letter
  • Intellectual Disabilities
  • Personality Assessment Inventory (PAI)
  • Anxiety 
  • Trauma
  • Personality Disorders
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Performance Psychology

I'm passionate in developing a strong therapeutic relationship with consistent engagement to work through the core nature of individual issues. I design therapy based on each individual's needs and we identify treatment goals with practical skills from the initial sessions.  I'm trained in a variety of specialised and evidence-based interventions including CBT (trauma focussed), psychotherapy, brief psychodynamic therapy, mindfulness and solution focussed therapy.

My background as a professional athlete brings unique experience in the management of performance pressures and building self-confidence. I endeavour to promote self-awareness, empowerment and produce positive outcomes while in a safe and supportive environment.
