“I am a Clinical Psychologist with experience working in public health as well as private practice. When I am not running Flight Experience’s Fear of Flying course I specialise treating people with severe anxieties such as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Generalised Anxiety Disorder and Panic Disorder. I primarily use a Cognitive-Behavioural approach, though I have experience integrating other therapies. As well as Fear of Flying groups, I have run group programs for mood and anxiety as well as body image and self-esteem. I also enjoy my work at Charles Sturt University where I supervise Clinical Psychology Masters students”
