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)
- 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.
