Hello, I am a registered Clinical Psychologist in private practice offering counselling, coaching, peer consultation, supervision, and corporate consulting and training.

With a warm, empathic approach, I enjoy facilitating people getting in touch with what matters most to them in life.

I work across the range of life’s experience, from distress and stress, to wellbeing and fulfilment.

I focus on working with people motivated to improve their wellbeing, growth, and fulfilment in life, including the following.

  • High functioning & empathic adults:
  • Professionals & corporate leaders:
    • current & future executives & managers.
  • Medical & health professionals.
  • Business owners & community leaders.
  • Academics & university students.
  • Sports people & performing artists.

I have grown through my own experience of personal and organisational challenges. This informs my professional focus on facilitating health and wellbeing with individuals and organisations.

In brief, here is a sense of some things my practice focuses on.

  • A strengths-based approach, facilitating self-actualisation.
  • Getting in touch with what matters most to you (core values).
  • Wellbeing, growth, and fulfilment in life.
  • Flourishing into your life worth living.
  • Living life connected with more meaning, purpose, and enjoyment.
  • A holistic approach: considering body, mind, spirit, relationships, organisations, and environment.

COVID-19 Safe Plan for In-person Appointments

  • In living with COVID-19 in community transmission in WA, we each have a responsibility to make the right decisions for our own health/wellbeing, while considering the health/wellbeing of our loved ones and the community.
  • We all have people in our networks whose health is at greater risk due to COVID-19 (e.g., those who are unvaccinated, over 70, currently/recently pregnant, immunocompromised, smoking, or have certain health conditions or other risk factors, please consult your GP and also see here).
  • When COVID community transmission permits, I want you to have the option of in-person appointments as much as safely possible.
  • So my COVID Safe Plan aims to reduce COVID-19 exposure risk in the practice, which can otherwise stop in-person sessions.
  • My COVID Safe Plan considers your health risks regarding COVID-19, behavioural approaches, and telehealth (video appointments).
  • As an ethical responsibility, I support people to make effective decisions for their health and wellbeing.
  • If for any reason you do not wish to wear a mask in person, are unvaccinated, or have a known circumstance that places your health (or someone you have close contact with) at greater risk from COVID-19, then we can discuss what options might be safe and appropriate (e.g., telehealth, or if telehealth is not suitable for your circumstances, other services & consulting your GP).

Areas I do not work with

  • It is important to find a service that is a good enough fit for your needs.
  • My practice is likely not a good fit for people who present with the following conditions:
  • psychosis, schizophrenia, bipolar affective disorder, personality disorders, drug and alcohol use disorders, family domestic violence, intellectual disability, and suicidal or self-harming behaviours.
