Welcome to my webpage. A bit more about me:
I first sought psychological and psychiatric treatment myself when I was sixteen. I have a history of major depression, general anxiety, and substance use disorder. Today, I am 31. I like to incorporate my lived experience in my work, where applicable. I believe an unconditional, caring, empathetic relationship is the foundation for effective therapy. I don't believe psychological disorders "disappear". I believe we get better at managing the symptoms, as we move towards disillusion, acceptance, and personal authenticity. I don't use the word 'struggle' when referring to psychological distress or dysfunction. I prefer the word 'experience' or 'live with' e.g., I live with depression, rather than I struggle with depression.
For over a decade I have continued to develop a comprehensive understanding of the human condition, and myself. I have continued to see psychologists, psychiatrists and other specialists to learn how to live with a mental health "dis-order". Currently, I have 5 years work experience as a Mental Health Peer Worker.
I provide a mobile service for people living within Sydney Inner West and the Eastern Suburbs.
I primarily employ recovery and existentialist principles to support and educate others diagnosed with a mental health disorder, or anyone who would like to talk about their feelings, thoughts, and/or behaviour(s). I focus on client potential, hope, purpose, creativity, functionality, change, acceptance, and the human experience through a process of philosophical and psychological dialogue. I believe human vulnerability is a gate-way to self-actualisation, self-love, self-esteem, and humility.
I am not a Registered Psychologist. My prices are based on what you can afford. Generally the base rate is $50 - $100 dependent on your financial circumstances. Consultation is a standard $50.
