Welcome to SELF and MOTION

Are you hoping to find a non-judgemental therapist who is willing to understand you by placing your feelings at the centre of the therapy?

Are you looking for a therapist who will work fluidly with feelings, sensations, body and mind?

This website describes my Canberra-based psychotherapeutic practice which offers:

  • Face to face, individual psychodynamic psychotherapy and somatic psychotherapy informed by psychoanalytic Self-Psychology which is effective for many clinical presentations, including depression, anxiety, trauma, personality disorders, addictions and relationship issues
  • Professional supervision incorporating Self Psychology (and movement theory on an as-required-basis) for Psychodynamic Psychotherapists, Somatic Psychotherapists, Psychologists, Counsellors, and Dance/Movement Therapists
  • Training in Laban Movement Analysis and Bartenieff Fundamentals theory for movement observation and analysis, which provides theoretical and practical support for any professional whose work includes the body and/or movement
