About Me

I'm an Australian clinical psychologist with over 20 years experience as a therapist, trainer and researcher. I have an active clinical practice and I'm passionate about motivational interviewing (MI) and compassion focused therapy (CFT). And I have had the great privilege of presenting on these topics around the world!
