Practice Framework

As a Psychologist and Family Therapist, I am primarily influenced by my Systemic Family Therapy Framework - this means I appreciate the importance of getting to know the whole person, understanding relationships, contextual factors (different aspects of a person's life and history), and how people come to understand their situation and make meaning of the things that have happened in life.  These things are generally related and important whether I am seeing individuals, couples, families or working with teams. 
I draw from different schools of Family Therapy (e.g., Solution Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Milan Systemic Psychotherapy, Bowen Family Systems, Structural Family Therapy), and integrate other evidence-based interventions to provide a tailored approach. 
In line with contemporary practice, I am trained in and use a variety of other psychological approaches when relevant to the presenting problem.  These include:

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Mentalization-Based Therapy (MBT)
Adaptive Mentalization-Based Integrative Therapy (AMBIT)
