Tell us about yourself:
I am a registered Psychologist and also have a Masters in Rehabilitation Counselling. I am really interested in helping to support people with discovering maintainable ways to respond to life’s difficulties as well as understand the meaning and complexity of past experiences and how these interact with present issues. I like to deliver a holistic and individual approach to well-being and use a combination of evidence-based and targeted psychological treatments. I have had experience working with and treating people of all ages around a range of conditions, inclusive of anxiety, depression, PTSD, grief, relationships, neurodiversity, and conduct assessments for ADHD and autism. My therapeutic approach utilises cognitive behavioural therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and schema therapy.
What do you like about working at Psychology4Life?
A big drawcard of working at Psychology4Life is the collaborative group approach and support from my colleagues. The team of psychologists are passionate about the work they do and I love being part of this group. The practice offers the opportunity to work with a diverse population, enabling me to gain exposure to varying aspects of mental health challenges.
What is one mental health tip?
LAUGH A LOT! Laughter can be therapeutic. Every time we laugh, our brains release dopamine, a chemical that makes us feel happy. As children, we used to laugh hundreds of times a day, but as adults, life tends to be more serious and we may find ourselves laughing less. If this sounds like you, seek out more opportunities for humour and laughter, it’s a good way to start to improving your emotional health.
