Therapy with Dr Jean

Working in a therapeutic capacity for the past 28 years, and in full time practice as a psychologist since 2009, Jean has built up an impressive repertoire of skills and experience. She is equally adept at therapy with teenagers, as she is with adults and couples. She remains approachable and very easy to talk to, despite her remarkable career experience. A passion for ongoing learning, significant life experience, combined with kindness and genuine compassion, makes Jean effective as both a listener and a wise guide.

An Experienced Individual and Couples Therapist

Jean is skilled at quickly moving to a deep understanding of the person in front of her, and the ways they may be helped. Her professional and life experience brings a richness to her understanding, and she utilises evidence-based treatment techniques that are most likely to help. She is insightful, empathetic, kind, and very easy to connect with.

Jean is particularly passionate about assisting clients with trauma across the lifespan and how past trauma affects them today. She compassionately helps her clients to get unstuck from the sometimes quite dramatic and insidious ways trauma can affect a person, and live freely and joyfully again.

 

As a psychologist trained in Gottman and other proven techniques for couples, Jean is skilled at helping couples improve their communication, and foster increased intimacy, understanding, respect, love, and friendship with each other. Jean’s manner is both direct and honest, yet kind, so that challenges can be dealt with compassionately and effectively. 

 

Jean integrates techniques and strategies from the many treatment modalities she is trained in, to provide an individualised and  comprehensive treatment approach that targets both specific symptoms and broader underlying factors.
