I offer short or long-term psychotherapy to individuals, couples and groups who want to address issues in their lives that affect their functioning, to meet challenges, to make sense of how they operate in their relationships and to develop their potentials and enjoyment of life. I also offer supervision to health professionals.

Approaches and modalities: I work from a psychodynamic psychotherapy base with a mind to the systems that influence the way people live now and in the past – families, society, culture, sexual orientation and lifestyle choices, Trauma therapy, Attachment theory and a developmental perspective.

Specialisms: Relationships, trauma and abuse, depression, anxiety, sexuality, life transitions, general personal growth.

Experience: I have worked for the last 20 years in both agency and private settings with individuals, couples and groups, and supervising other psychotherapists and counsellors. I have been in clinical management positions at 2 agencies specialising in trauma and abuse over the past 20 years and am now full-time in private practice.

Accreditations: Family court registered. EAP with Stratos. ACC regsitered,

Location: On the corner of Jervois and Albany Rds. - good access to street parking and bus services. Available for daytime or evening appointments Monday to Thursday.
