I'm an Australian clinical neuropsychologist and therapist living in Paris. I have worked in a wide range of settings, including hospitals and research clinics, as well as private practice. These experiences have given me a broad set of skills to treat a range of difficulties, including anxiety, depression and stress, as well as neurocognitive disorders such as ADHD. 

 

In my work as a therapist, I like to create a friendly, down-to-earth and collaborative space. My aims are to make people feel truly heard and understood, and to deliver therapy that makes a genuine difference in their lives. I primarily engage in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and integrate Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) therapy and mindfulness-based techniques. I am also trained in Schema Therapy, which can be useful for getting people unstuck from negative patterns originating in childhood. I have a

Masters in Clinical Neuropsychology from Macquarie University in Sydney, where I received the Vice-Chancellor’s Commendation for Academic Excellence.

 

Problems I have experience treating include:

 

  • Anxiety and Worry

  • Depression

  • Perfectionism

  • Self-Esteem Issues

  • Isolation and Loneliness

  • Work and Study Stress

  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

  • Adolescent Issues

  • Relationship Problems

  • Child and Family Issues

  • Life Crises

Given my expertise in neuropsychology, I am also able to draw on cognitive remediation techniques to address any difficulties with attention or memory associated with mental health difficulties. I also have experience evaluating and treating problems associated with memory and attention, neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, psychiatric conditions, intellectual disability and drug and alcohol-related conditions.

 

Whatever you’re going through, it would be my privilege to help you see things more clearly, achieve emotional balance and live a more meaningful life. I look forward to welcoming you to our clinic in Paris and beginning your therapy journey with you.
