I started my journey in working in the field of Psychology as I have a strong desire to help others to improve their health and well-being. I value the place that mental health well-being has on individuals, families, communities and society in general. 26 years as a Psychologist and I never cease to be amazed at the positive steps that people can take in difficult times, if given a range of supports and tools.

Advice in seeking help:
Be brave and give yourself the opportunity to see things from a different perspective, with the assistance of counselling. Don’t let the awkwardness of the first time meeting a Psychologist to deny you of the opportunity to improve your health and well-being. I’m really not that scary to talk to and the appointment time goes so quickly when we are busy working on the issues. You will leave feeling pleased you have given yourself an opportunity to improve your wellness.
