Clinical Psychologist – Counselling for Men & Counselling for Male Adolescents
To meet in a conversation space with another and to speak openly is a big step.
It is an act of kindness to oneself and a chance to develop clarity, sensitivity, insight and personal direction.
For me, it is a humbling and enriching privilege to facilitate an open heart conversation and to provide a space that allows another to come forward – to meet oneself, so to speak.
My intention is to enable a broadening of awareness that fosters self-compassion; comfort with vulnerability; and, wisdom about being human.
I draw on the principles and practices of Insight Meditation and Insight Dialogue and follow an intuitive person-focused process that heightens open, truthful and practical communication.
I have been a practising therapist since 1998. I spent the early part of my career in adolescent mental health settings working with individuals, families, parents and groups.
I completed a clinical psychology doctorate in 2005 and then spent a number of years in a family therapy centre where I worked systemically with clients and their families – occasionally employing team-based processes.
In 2010 I joined Nexus psychology as a co-director with my life partner Dori, and here I continue to see clients on a predominantly individual basis.
My counselling focus has honed over the years on my passion for speaking with males of all ages.
Clients I work with:
- Individual Male Adults
