Sitting with clients has been part of my life in various settings over the past 30 years. I am an experienced GP and also a psychotherapist, working primarily from a gestalt model. Having trained in CBT and Jungian work, I am able to draw on a all of these modalities and my medical background as the situation requires. I am experienced in working across a wide range of clinical issues, and will engage you in a respectful therapeutic dialogue which I believe is the key to wellness. Here you will find a warm, supportive, non-judgemental space in which to explore and strengthen your sense of self.

I am a Gestalt Art Therapist. As my client, you can expect to be welcomed into a respectful and creative space with clear boundaries and safety to explore your issues. I offer the choice to engage with a range of expressive art media in the therapy session. This helps tap into the subconscious world, bringing it to awareness. It can be a gentle way of approaching difficult material, or a way of gaining access to parts of the self that are hard to put into words. I am also a group facilitator and offer self-development workshops using creative processes.

I have been in full-time private practice in Brisbane since 1992, providing Meaningful Life Coaching, Counselling, Psychotherapy, and Clinical Supervision. I have myself practised meditation in various forms for over 30 years, so mindfulness practices are naturally integrated into my approach. I have also conducted research (internationally published) on the application of mindfulness in psychotherapy supervision. Mindful awareness of one’s moment-to-moment experience is essential for true personal growth and fulfilment. Mindful awareness is also what links counselling and psychotherapy to meditation, and this is the background to my statement that “psychotherapy is spiritual work with its feet on the ground.”
