I have worked as a psychotherapist for the past 27 years and I have wide experience in helping people with many different issues.

I offer brief, solution oriented therapy and coaching for personal and professional development, utilising my skills in Clinical Hypnotherapy, Brainspotting and The Tapping Technique.

I also facilitate mediation for conflict resolution.

I am available for consultations on Mondays, by appointment in Neutral Bay.

Sessions are either 60, 90 or 120 mins depending on need. $150 per hour, pro rata.
