Your initial therapy session with me is 90-minutes in duration. It allows me enough time get a thorough understanding of your issues and concerns, discuss possible treatment options and answer any questions that arise.
Follow up sessions will last anywhere between 80 and 90 minutes. It is my firm belief, and experience, that in trauma work a ‘therapeutic hour’ (which is actually 50 minutes) does not allow enough time to access, reprocess and successfully contain the traumatic experience.

My office is located in St Ives, Sydney’s Upper North Shore. Personally I don’t think there’s a nicer place to get the support you’re looking for.
My preference is to work with you on a weekly or fortnightly basis. The research has proven that regular therapy sessions increase your benefits. Ideally you’ll have a built-in place to unload your worries every week and you’ll learn how to handle new challenges with grace.
Your first session with me is a time for me to listen to the particular issues and concerns that bring you to my office. I will listen to your story and take the time to thoroughly assess exactly what it is that you are struggling with. We will then discuss your goals and I will answer any questions you may have. From there, we will discuss a plan for moving forward and scheduling of future appointments.
