Psychotherapy from an Expert in Relationships


Counselling & Psychotherapy in the Sydney CBD

Life is meant to be lived with Joy.

 Let's eliminate your barriers.

Psychotherapist in the Sydney CBD

Work with an experienced therapist to alleviate stress, anxiety, depression, grief & loss, or whatever negative feelings are getting in the way of your joy.

My approach is direct and bottom line- offering tools and teaching coping skills right at the start. I also work psycho-dynamically, which means I help you unpack that baggage you've been carrying from relationship to relationship (we all have it!). I'll help you sort through it, decide what's important, and help you let go of what no longer suites you.

I believe that language and our narrative (our stories we tell ourselves) are the biggest change agent we have. I will help you recognize your barriers and teach you how to change your story into something that makes sense for you. I want to teach you how to get more joy from your life, and more Love from your relationships.

Therapy & Counselling

As a therapist, I provide anxiety counselling and stress counselling for those suffering from an increase in worry, stress and panic attacks. Anxiety and stress symptoms can sometimes mimic medical problems. If you are not sure, always check with your doctor to make sure there is nothing medically wrong. Anxiety, stress and panic attack symptoms can include;

  • stressful and anxious thoughts that cause a great deal of discomfort
  • anxious and stressful worrying even if you don't need to worry
  • physical symptoms of stress and worry such as racing or pounding heart, shortness of breath , shaking, sweating, nausea or stomach discomfort (not due to medical illness)
  • feeling dizzy or faint during intense anxiety and stress
  • feeling fear or shame that you are going crazy, or losing control, or dying
  • anxiety and discomfort while being out socially with increased fears of having a panic attack
  • staying home because of the fear of panicking in a public space
  • concern about an increase of self medication with drugs or alcohol in order to lessen the intense anxiety

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, I may be able to help. As a psychotherapist and counsellor I will work with you and teach you how to effectively manage your stress through mindfulness work and other thought stopping activities.  I help you develop skills that make sense for you to manage your stress in healthy ways. I also works with self image issues and perfectionism that often accompany panic attacks and stress.
