Helen works primarily in psychoanalytic psychotherapy with an interpersonal approach, helping people to learn new ways of relating to themselves, others and the world around them.

As a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, Helen is trained and experienced in helping people explore their interpersonal style using the therapy relationship as a template.  Assuming the existence of an unconscious, where appropriate she works closely with each individual to determine patterns and blocks that get in the way of clear thinking.  She aims to help people accurately reflect on their inner world thereby resolving long-standing personality problems and concerns.

Helen sees people who present with the following problems; depression and mood disturbance, sleep problems, sexual issues, difficulty tolerating intimacy and building relationships, self-destructive thoughts and behaviours, impulsive behaviours, difficulty tolerating anger and frustration, anxiety, trauma, eating disorders & body image concerns, addictions, obsessions and compulsions and dealing with midlife transition and other life stages.   In addition, she is passionate about working with artists, musicians, writers, performers and anyone open to living a more creative life.

She has particular interest and experience in providing long-term psychotherapy (1-2 times per week) to address long standing trauma and/or personality problems.  Generally she will take 1-4 sessions to make a thorough assessment of the issues and the type of therapy required.  Medicare rebates may apply.

Her practice hours are 8am – 6pm Tuesday to Friday.
