    About Psychologist

    This Hart therapist is passionate about using creative and personalised approaches to support individuals and couples. He has worked in communities around the far northern Cape York peninsula, giving him experience and interest in exploring how individuals connect with themselves, one another and with the culture, whether that be social, work, family or the community culture they live in.

If working individually with men, he is clear on creating a space where men are able to safely process feelings, views, beliefs and various expectations. When working together with couples, he brings to light key areas around safe and respectable conflict, how to build connection and intimacy, how to improve communication, and the importance of individual and relationship self care. He is often given feedback around the friendly and approachable space he creates, along with the professional support he provides to his clients.

    What are three strengths you have as a Psychologist/Counsellor?
    1. Creative and adaptable in my approaches to meet individual needs.
    2. My empathic conversational style is often reported as approachable and calming.
    3. Ability to break down complex scenarios into simple attainable steps.
    What is the most satisfying and fulfilling part of the work you do?

    When I am able to assist clients in making sense of their challenging situation.

    Supporting them to feel hope and empowerment, to be able to do something different to make a change.

    What’s an example of a couple you have helped the most?

    I have supported couples in identifying how conflict is outworking the relationship, and how communication or lack of communication is impacting the relationship.

    I have helped a man to see that his responses to fear and shame, was leading to controlling behaviour in the relationship. Once he identified this, he was able to learn better communication skills to speak with his partner, improving the health of their relationship. His partner felt more trusting, and was able to reflect on her own reactions to shame and feelings of inadequacy, learning better ways of communicating what she needed in the relationship.
