Welcome to your mind maintenance

My philosophy of treatment is underpinned by a strong belief in the individual and their ability to adapt and operate within their environment. Psychological Therapy assists in the development of a deeper understanding and acquisition of new skills to meet the challenges of life enabling management of emotions and reactions, relationships and work.

About Me

I was born in Australia and initially worked and studied nursing in several states before moving to the United Kingdom. While Overseas I pursued my interest in Psychology gaining a degree at Surrey University. Following my return to Australia I gained my Registration as a psychologist and joined the College of Health Psychology. I have continued studying and attending workshops on different forms of treatment.

I work with individuals to assist in their developing skills for the future and enabling recognition the skills already developed. This assists with personal, work and family situations. As a Health Psychologist I also work with those suffering from Chronic Illnesses and Injuries and how best to manage these changes in lifestyle.

Each session is 50-60 minutes long and I am accredited with Private Health Insurance Companies as well as TAC and Work Cover Agencies and Government Services including Primary Health Networks and the Medicare Rebate.
