This Hart psychologist deeply cares about his work with couples and individuals. He prides himself on his ability to quickly establish rapport and connection in a friendly, warm and secure environment, also on the value of providing “unconditional positive regard” for his clients to ensure that no-one who comes seeking support would feel judged in any way.
With over twenty years of experience in working with individuals and over ten years working with couples, he brings a range of experience and tools to his work and sees himself as an eclectic psychologist – meaning he will bring in whatever technique – whether it is CBT, meditation, person centred, psychodynamic or Gottman Therapy to assist his clients to get the most out of their time together.
In particular, over the last ten years, his interest and learning in the field of couples work has grown exponentially. He is trained in Gottman therapeutic tools and processes and loves how the approach is based on Dr. John Gottman’s more than 40 years of research and experience. He is a constant reader and learner, and loves to bring that learning into the counselling room.
Special interests and experience include: conflict & communication issues, gridlocks, emotional control and regulation, infidelity, relationship confusion, addictions (gambling, porn, alcohol and drug), sex and intimacy issues as well as anxiety and depression.
In a past life, he worked in the corporate world in the field of organisational psychology and human resources and so understands some of the issues and stressors that come with needing to earn a living, finding or changing careers and dealing with all manner of workplace-related issues.
