Professional Biography
My initial training was in Organisational Psychology and my early background is human resource management where I gained experience in recruitment, selection, training, personnel development, and project management. 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 mental health issues relevant to serving personnel. For the first decade of my career, in addition to management consulting, I assisted injured workers to return to work under State and Federal worker’s 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 fire-setting. I currently conduct a successful private practice in Northern NSW providing a range of clinical psychology services, working with individuals and couples as well as providing training to aged care facilities for staff, carers and residents in general mental health and well-being issues.
