DOING THIS WORK
I do this work because I believe that people can Change and Heal. I have witnessed many brave clients transform their lives.
Our journey starts where you are at. Together we co-create the conditions and changes you need for growth, healing, and the freedom to Be, to Create, to Live, to Love.
I am a clinical psychologist specialising in brief or longer term dynamic psychotherapy. I offer therapy for individuals, couples (marital therapy, couples counselling, premarital counselling, divorce counselling) and families.
Working with adults, adolescents, and parents of younger children are all within my field of expertise.
I also assist and do therapy with people who have been diagnosed with serious psychiatric conditions such as bipolar disorder, autism (Asperger’s), schizophrenia, personality disorders and others.
My approach to psychotherapy can be described as “short-term dynamic”. This approach is informed by therapies such as ISTDP (intensive short-term dynamic psychotherapy), CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), and Attachment and Systems theory. These are aided by rational and reality-based thinking, intuition, and more than a decade of experience.
“Short-term” can range from one session to as many as 40, depending on your presenting problems and the amount of healing required. The therapy is “dynamic”, as we will actively work with both factors that you are aware of and some that you are most likely unaware of. This requires focused work and continued effort, both from you and me.
I may supplement the therapeutic process by employing specific tests, questionnaires or techniques if deemed appropriate. Some of these include BWRT or “Brain Working Recursive Therapy”; EMI or “Eye Movement Integration” (similar to EMDR); and the change triangle. With couples I am guided by the Imago therapy approach and the Gottman method.
