BA Psych (Hons).
Jim is a highly experienced counselling psychologist, skilled at treating a range of issues. He brings a compassionate and practical attitude to therapy and has particular strengths in working with adults with multiple diagnoses, including addictions, complex PTSD, anxiety and depression.
With extensive experience working with high risk, complex clients who are feeling overwhelmed and lost, Jim takes an attitude of “first things first” and “what is the most important thing right now?”. He finds a balance between exploring the origins of current issues and teaching practical strategies to manage difficult emotions.
Jim has been helping with people with concurrent mental illness and drug and alcohol disorders (dual diagnosis clients) since 2006, in both public, private and NGO settings. He brings an eclectic mix of scientifically proven strategies along with a warm, non-judgmental attitude.
Jim is currently working as the Senior Psychologist at a long term not-for-profit residential rehabilitation facility. He is a Psychology Board approved supervisor and has worked with both intern psychologists and allied health workers in providing both individual and group supervision.
