Traveler, School Teacher, IT guy (for too long), and then I began my Gestalt journey in 2003, at Brisbane Gestalt Institute.  I completed my Master of Gestalt Therapy at Gestalt Therapy Brisbane (GTB) in 2013, with a focus on effective ways of working with emotions, and particularly shame, in psychotherapy. I have a private practice in Northern NSW where I provide support for individuals, couples, and families, as well as mediation, group facilitation and family and systemic constellation work.

Individuals, Couples and Families. I am a Gestalt trained psychotherapist with a background in meditation and mindfulness predominantly informed by family systems thinking. I aim to assist clients with a range of difficulties with an emphasis on relationships. Symptoms are viewed as connected to the big picture of a person’s life and relationships. I help clients develop self awareness of how they might be reacting to others and how those reactions are being responded to. I explore with clients how relationships are both a resource and a challenge in their effort to live a healthy and satisfying life. I work with Addictions; Marriage Counselling; Trauma; Family Therapy; Anxiety and Depression; Cross Cultural Issues; Life Transitions

My specialties include working with adolescents, adults, individuals and couples in a supportive and understanding way. Issues arising may involve depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction, grief reactions and sexual dysfunction. My methods include: process work, mindfulness, dream-work, art therapy, constellation work and sand-play. I make every effort to create a safe, non-judgmental and supportive environment where you can relax and explore your ways of operating in the world. The whole person (mind, body, emotions, spirituality past and present) is considered. Awareness of self is increased and as your world opens up different ways of being can be revealed. As the Director of the Sydney Gestalt Institute for 15 years I developed the skills of a therapist, trainer, group facilitator and supervisor.
