Professional Biography
I am a clinical and forensic psychologist with teaching and research expertise in specific areas relating to criminal behaviour analysis, mental health, wellbeing, trauma and dispute resolution. My initial training was in Organisational Psychology and my early background was in human resource management. As a practitioner, I have provided on-call critical incident stress debriefing following trauma for correctional staff and emergency services personnel, as well as worked for the Australian Defence Force providing psychology services and advice to command concerning serving personnel mental health. For the first decade of my career, in addition to management consulting, I assisted injured workers to return to work under State and Federal workers compensation schemes (vocational rehabilitation). Subsequently, I moved into the area of Clinical Psychology and later into Forensic Psychology, training in criminal behaviour analysis (profiling) and specialising in the psychology of deliberate firesetting. In 2016 I completed a law degree to ensure I could provide additional insights and a deeper level of impact in my research. I currently conduct a successful private practice providing a range of clinical psychology services and forensic reports. I am best known for my commitment to ensuring my students develop real world, practical, analytical skills; and focus on conducting research with outcomes and benefits which address pressing community issues.
