I have over ten years experience in the area of mental health working with children, adolescents and adults both in the community sector and in private practise. Following my masters degree in youth and community work I went on to achieve a bachelors degree in psychotherapy. I have extensive clinical experience with a variety of issues such as attention deficit disorder, school avoidance, oppositional defiant disorder, anger management, low self-esteem, shyness, social anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorders, depression, panic disorder, grief and loss, separation and divorce, blended-family issues, relationship difficulties, family conflict and sibling rivalry. I currently work as a therapist as part of an intensive child and family team with a leading mental health agency and I also work with a number of private clients. I am trained and experienced in Dialectic Behaviour Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for the treatment of BPD, anxiety, depression, OCD and suicidal tendencies. My original training includes humanistic and integrative approaches using narrative therapy, solution focused therapy and emotion focused therapy. I am registered with the CRPO.
