About me

As a specialist in the field of Relational Psychotherapy, Couple Therapy & Coaching I have worked for 17 years with many people to help them live more fulfilling and happy lives. I help transform people by working with them individually in private practice and in my one day or two-day weekend retreats. One of the highlights of my career has been working with couples in workshops held at North Stradbroke Island in Queensland. I am also well known for having facilitated workshops and groups for men dealing with relationship and parenting issues held on Australia’s East Coast. I call on a range of methodologies in my work. These includes being trained and certified as a facilitator in methodologies like the Core Profile process which is a therapeutic application from the Core Paradigm and I am a certified Level 2 PACT Therapist - The Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy (PACT) developed by Stan Tatkin that I recently completed in Canada. I am also trained in Transactional Analysis (TA), which is a theory of personality. TA describes how people are structured psychologically and its best-known feature is the ego-state (Parent-Adult-Child) model. This model helps us understand and explains how people function and express their personality in their behavior. Combined with other modalities and theories, I have used TA as the foundation of my clinical thinking to support people who want to create transformation in their lives. I have had the privilege of working closely with people and witnessing them experiencing profound growth in intimacy, love, connection and happiness. The training I have undertaken allows me to work flexibly with individuals, couples and corporate professionals. My interests lie in issues around attachment, security and supporting the robust development of children’s’ personalities. I also work with the importance of self-esteem, loving relationships and the tensions we experience around the push-and-pull of power and vulnerability.
