About Me

I have a background as a military psychologist and senior Army officer, in private practice, in the tertiary sector, supporting people with health and exercise goals, and educating and supervising psychologists.

I’m excited to work alongside people to build personal resilience, identify and reduce sources of unhealthy stress and eliminate obstacles to productivity, wellness and peak performance. I'm a firm believer in catching psychological concerns early, and love to help people take steps to turn setbacks into opportunities for growth. Often, a fresh perspective, having someone on side to help you recognise your strengths, clarify your priorities and options, and keep you accountable to your goals, is all it takes to get you unstuck, re-energised, through a tough patch, or pointed in the right direction. I like to treat sessions as a collaborative, goal-oriented conversation, which is light-hearted, practical, and geared for you to take away new ideas and strategies to make "real world" changes.

I’m available for personal or work-related counselling, coaching and personal development, management support and work psychology advice, support with health and fitness goals, and psychologist supervision. I look forward to the chance to meet you.
