Andrew has worked with The AFL Western Bulldogs Community Foundation, Lifeline and The Sacred Heart Mission and is familiar with telehealth, group, and individual work. He also integrates a wealth of knowledge and techniques from a long career as a naturopath.

Therapeutic Approach

‘I like to be warm and welcoming. I have a very open and relaxed manner that I hope will allow you to feel comfortable in describing your situation. Research shows that the therapeutic relationship (e.g., how well you get along with your psychologist) can be just as important as the work we do together. I think therapy should not be rigid, and I try to emulate that. Pawfessor Morty (a Hungarian Vizsla) has now joined the therapy team, and he looks forward to helping you feel warm and welcomed too!’ – Andrew
