If you are reading this, then it is possible that you are experiencing some difficulties in life.  Now could be the time to consider the services of a psychologist.  Read on to learn about how this might work for you.  

With twenty years' experience in providing psychological assessments and therapy to adults, children and couples, in the UK, Nova Scotia and British Columbia, I can help you identify what you need and how you can achieve it.

Different approaches work for different people; determining what's right for you is important.  We'll discover what really matters to you and work to make that happen. Your goal might be to learn to deal with panic attacks, or it might be to feel brave enough to face going to the grocery store or to feel good enough to get back to work or to get on better with your partner. We'll make sure that what we do is focused and relevant to your life.  


You may be concerned about coming and wonder if therapy is going to be effective.  So far, the evidence has found that therapy works.  For example, in 1980 a group of researchers did an extensive analysis of all the research into how effective therapy is.  They looked at 475 research studies in psychotherapy.  They concluded that 80% of the people who complete treatment are better off than those people who did not receive treatment. In effect, this makes therapy as effective as getting a pacemaker fitted.  (Smith ML, Glass GV, Miller TI. The benefits of psychotherapy. Baltimore: John Hopkins University., 1980)
