About Me

My approach to mental health nursing practice and family therapy is one of partnership with clients and families to address the issues bought to therapy or raised in practice. I have worked in the mental health field for over 40 years (it’s been so long I don't wish to confess the exact time!) between Australia and New Zealand. During that time, I have worked across numerous clinical, therapeutic and educational contexts with a particular focus in the specialist areas of child, adolescent and family mental health while maintaining a part time private family therapy practice. I believe we all experience difficulties in our lives and the partnership of my skills in therapy and mental health nursing practice, and my clients and their families and carers in understanding their own lives, is intended to address these.
