Welcome

Perhaps you have found this website because you are feeling bewildered or overwhelmed by your inner world or external challenges; maybe because you feel ‘stuck’ or frustrated in your attempts to take strides ahead in the life directions of your choosing; possibly you have noticed past experiences exerting an unwanted and unhelpful influence in your current life; or perhaps life is pretty good and you want help to move to great.

Whatever the reason that drew you to this site – I hope you find what you need to take the next step towards a happier, healthier and more meaningful life.

I am a registered psychologist who helps clients reclaim their lives after psychological trauma, emotional suffering or goal frustration. My approach to therapy is respectful, recovery focussed and grounded in evidence-based methods and good-sense.

I understand that there are an endless number of things that people would prefer to do, over attending psychotherapy. My role is to help get you back to those meaningful activities of life – able to enjoy and participate in them more fully and more freely.

The psychotherapeutic work I do is integrative and trauma-informed, drawing upon therapeutic modalities of Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy; therapies for structural dissociation; Mindfulness; Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT); and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

In 2018, I cofounded the Brisbane Harmony Centre with fellow psychologists Dr Catherine Hynes and Amanda Hansen. Our aim has been to establish a Centre built on a solid foundation of shared values, including:

  • Treating people with empathy, compassion and respect (always);
  • Applying the most proven and effective therapeutic techniques;
  • Curiousity and openness to new insights and understandings;
  • Working together with others to achieve better outcomes and solutions;
  • Ensuring the highest standards of responsibility for good, safe, well-handled outcomes; and
  • Being true to ourselves and our values.

I am extremely proud of the Centre, and the work we each do in supporting the wellbeing, recovery and aspirations of our clients.
