Approach to Therapy:
“Getting over a painful experience is much like crossing monkey bars. You have to let go at some point in order to move forward.” – C.S. Lewis
Phoebe feels she is privileged to be a psychologist able to assist her clients crossing their personal “monkey bars” and see them moving forward.  She has a warm, professional manner and is passionate about helping others, with an understanding of Christian values if needed. She enjoys working with children, adults and families. She empathises with clients’ pain and other difficulties. She has a willingness and openness to learn more about clients’ values and beliefs. She uses an integrated approach to therapy and is committed to a client-centred approach. She assists her clients to understand their life experience and behaviours, thusly they are able to achieve their goals and develop new insights and perspectives along the way.

Phoebe utilises evidence-based treatment modalities including:
  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
  • Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing therapy (EMDR)
  • Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT)
