My great passion and expertise lies in the Treatment of anxiety, depression, sleep issues, stress management, substance misuse, psychological aspects of chronic illness, family, relationship and adolescent counselling, work-related stress, life adjustment issues such as retirement and family breakdown.
I use mindfulness techniques and teach skills for personal development.
Having recently moved to Tasmania with my partner Dhurva Davis from my successful and very busy Psychology practice in Sydney where we were actually training other psychologists and therapists in the essential therapy skills that they weren't taught at University. We are now excited about joining the integrative Gore Street Medical practice in 2016.
Initially I will work on Saturdays as this suits my new more relaxed lifestyle.
Dhurva Davis and I have also developed a model for working with couples with relationship challenges that involves Dhurva and myself as co-counsellors. Our therapeutic approach ensures maximum functional support to couples who are struggling with relationship issues and are willing to fully engage in a dynamic process of change.
We have also designed and delivered a range of workshops for clients who benefit from the group process in dealing with life issues where the development of practical skills based on validated psychological principles can assist in various areas of their lives.
In our workshop The Art of Conscious Living we help to enhance well-being by teaching skills of self-awareness, relaxation/meditation and communication and relationship dynamics.
I have a Bachelor of Science (Hons) Applied Psychology - University of NSW; a Diploma Family and Relationship Counselling - UNIFAM Australia; and a Graduate Certificate of Management - Southern Cross University
