Richard is a Clinical Psychologist with training in ISTDP and CBT. He seeks to collaborate with clients on their problems and provide through therapy a return to growth and resilience 

Richard’s therapeutic work is informed by more than ten years working in not-for-profit community health organisations. He has worked closely with families adjusting to serious illness and bereavement. This has equipped him with an extensive knowledge of how to promote resilience, hope, and a robust support network, amidst loss and change.

Some of the community work Richard has done includes travelling across Australia to deliver a distraction based in-hospital program to regionally hospitalised children, working in remote indigenous communities to promote attendance at health clinics, a comprehensive report of the needs and concerns of families who have a child receiving palliative care, supporting older people living at home with dementia by matching them with an assistance dog and supporting family caregivers of people living with dementia.

He brings these experiences to working one-on-one with individuals and enjoys seeing first-hand the long-lasting change psychotherapy can bring to people’s lives.
