Remy is a registered psychologist and full member of the Australian Psychological Society. Remy has focused his professional development on cognitive behaviour therapy, Eriksonian clinical hypnosis, mindfulness, solution-focussed therapy and strategic therapy techniques.

Therapy is individualized, and focusses on the client's particular concerns, lifestyle, values, goals, strengths and weaknesses. Take home tasks and practical strategies often form an important part of therapy.

Starting the process of seeing a psychologist can be challenging.
- Please feel free to contact me if you want some direction on getting started with the process.
- Contact your family / local GP to discuss gaining a Mental Health Care Plan
- I suggest you contact one or two psychologist's and then decide who you feel comfortable with. Many psychologists will be happy to answer a few questions by email or phone prior to a first session. This can be a great way to make the process feel comfortable from the start.
- Schedule appointment with your chosen psychologist
- At initial appointment, discuss your expectations and goals of counselling.
