I use a range of therapeutic tools, techniques and strategies that best fit the client. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy Skills, Motivational Interviewing, Rogerian Counselling and supportive psychotherapies.
I am highly experienced in working with people who have been diagnosed with a psychiatric illness and who have been prescribed medications – 90%+ of my referrals come from psychiatrists and G.P.s. I am endorsed as a Clinical Psychology Medicare Provider, and with appropriate referral clients are eligible for up to 10 sessions where the majority of the fee is refundable under Medicare.
Sessions are generally initially 55 minutes duration, with shorter appointments of 30 minutes also available.
I have a kind, caring, practical and direct approach to helping clients manage their mental health, their relationships and their life in general.
