I have now been in private practice for over 18 years seeing adolescent, adult, couple and family clients with a variety of complex life issues and moderate to severe mental health presentations. I am also the Director of the Specialist Psychological Outreach Team (SPOT) team of Psychologists. I have trained and supervise all the SPOT psychologists. I have a broad spectrum and eclectic range of psychotherapeutic techniques that I can utilize in our therapy including: Cognitive-Behavioural (CBT), Rational Emotive (RET) and Mindfulness, Narrative, Psychodynamic, Gestalt and Existentialist, Relational, Emotionally Focussed and Attachment based Developmental Psychotherapies. Therapy is tailored to your individual psychotherapeutic needs and goals of therapy are collaboratively decided so you are fully engaged in the decisions and the process along this journey.
