Sydney Psychotherapist specialising in Trauma, Addiction and Correctional Counselling Services

I work as a Psychotherapist registered with the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA) specialising in the field of addiction and trauma. I have a broad range of experience in the therapeutic field working in private practice, rehabilitation centres and in the legal and corrective services system supporting vulnerable people dealing with substance, behavioural and relational addictions.

Enhanced Legal Support and Correctional Counselling Services

Navigating the complexities of legal proceedings, especially when facing the prospect of a custodial sentence, can be an overwhelming experience. It’s common to encounter a whirlwind of emotions including denial, disbelief, loss, grief, shock, anger, guilt, confusion, sadness, and feelings of failure. Such intense emotions can rapidly evolve from mere anxiety to profound depression.

My role is to provide you with dedicated support and guidance through this challenging time. I am committed to helping you maintain composure, foster a positive outlook, and emerge from this experience with enhanced wisdom and understanding. Let’s work together to navigate this journey with resilience and hope.

Compassionate Inquiry

The approach I take is one of Compassionate Inquiry, where I engage with patients in a frank, mutual exchange that is personal, supportive, and professional. In this way we both move towards a proper understanding of the underlying issues and motivations that manifest as self-destructive or limiting tendencies and addiction in their lives.

Mutual Respect

I strive to create a safe and friendly relationship with my clients, where trust, mutual respect, and openness underpin all interactions. All discussions are treated with the strictest confidentiality.

My heart is open to the needs and desires of my clients for a better life, to help them rediscover who they are – to live a life free of addiction, anxiety, and depression, to navigate a path inviting self-confidence, self-respect, and happiness.

 We all want and deserve a good life, a happy life.
