Individual Therapy

Who I work With

I work with individuals who may want to discuss a particular problem with an objective listener, people who want to understand how their past experiences have conditioned them to behave in self-defeating ways, and people with psychological problems including:

  • Anxiety & depression
  • Weight and shape concerns
  • Emotional overeating
  • Acute and chronic stress
  • Relationship problems
  • Self-esteem and identity issues
  • Grief and loss
  • Sleep problems
  • Interpersonal problems
  • Chronic pain

My Therapeutic Style

My work is about helping people to understand why they are in their present unwanted state and provide skills to live in a way that is congruent with their values.

Therapy is conducted with a light touch, with honesty, kindness and humour. Treatment may be short-term (6-10 sessions) or for some problems, treatment may be conducted over many years. Specific interventions are drawn from:

  • The Mindfulness-based approaches
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
  • Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction
  • Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy
  • Mindful Eating
  • EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing)
  • Emotion Focussed Therapy
  • Internal Family Systems
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Schema therapy
  • Psychoanalytic Theory

Where I work and How much it Costs

I practice in Sandringham on a Tuesday and South Yarra on a Friday. You do not need a referral to see me however, to obtain a Medicare rebate of approximately $85 per session you require a Mental Health Treatment Plan (MHTP) from your general practitioner.

I bulk bill everyone with a MHTP so there are no out-of-pocket expenses.
