After travelling to the USA in 1979, I earned a Masters in Counselling Psychology and a license as a Marriage and Family Therapist (CA, 1983). Over the next several years I trained and practised as a Jungian or depth psychotherapist. During this time I also underwent ten years of personal Jungian Analysis between 1980 and 1995. I gained my PhD in 1999 (USA) before returning to Australia in 2003. I began a private practice here in Sydney and continue my work, “Psychotherapy with Depth“, as a depth psychotherapist as well as a working with Anita as Joint Couples Therapists.
I am an accredited Mental Health Social Worker with a Masters degree in Couples and Family Therapy and I have been practising as an individual and couples therapist since 1973. Having qualified as a Seven Principles Educator with John Gottman, I use the evidence-based strategies of Gottman’s research in my work with couples. I specialise in trauma and its impact on relationships and individuals, having worked with military personnel for many years. Therapeutic strategies from CBT, DBT, ACT, EMDR, and the Psychodramatic method also influence my work.
