I am a Clinical Psychologist at Inspired Psychology with full registration with the AustralianHealth Practitioners Regulation Agency (AHPRA). I am a member of the Australian Psychological Society, a fellow of the APS Clinical College and can provide clinical supervision as a Board Approved Supervisor.
I have experience working with adults affected by many kinds of mental health and life challenges which has inspired a keen interest in resilience. I have worked in a variety of Government, NGO and private practice settings as a psychologist. I believe that a supportive therapeutic setting allows people space to learn and grow from their challenges and to nurture their potential. I aim to bring warmth, empathy, creativity and curiosity to therapy sessions and to collaborate with my clients to implement practical skills for change.
I am trained and experienced in the therapy approaches of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing (EMDR), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) and the Maastricht Approach for Hearing Voices. As a Level 1 Applied Mindfulness Practitioner this forms a strong basis for sessions to explore how mindfulness skills can enhance self-awareness, self-compassion and hope for the future.
I have treated people who experience:
- Anxiety disorders
- Adjustment to life stage changes and stressors
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Complex Trauma
