About Bridget

As a psychologist I initially like to develop a good understanding of each of my clients, who they are, how they exist in the world, what is troubling them and what they are seeking to achieve from our sessions.  Together we will set goals and develop a plan that addresses your issues and supports you to implement change and develop new coping strategies.  I am of the perspective that long term therapeutic change comes from developing insight into our identity and how our past and present experiences have contributed to unhelpful thinking styles, behaviours and relationship patterns.  I love sessions where clients are willing to go a little deeper and examine the underlying patterns to their issues.  I have strong focus on taking time to build a trusting, collaborative relationship, and I am always open to feedback about the process of therapy and if my approaches are working for my clients. I draw on a range of evidence based treatments such as Schema-Focused Therapy, CBT, DBT, and EMDR (level 1 trained).   

  

I have experience in private practices, university clinics, acute inpatient facilities (psychiatric and perinatal mental health) and community mental health.  

Why I love working at The Glow Centre

I love working at The Glow Centre because it is a welcoming community of clients and staff, where you know your needs are going to be taken care of and collaboration is encouraged and fostered. The physical space is very considered, cosy and inviting. 

Outside the practice

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my friends, visiting family on the coast, travel, hiking, reading, painting or trying to master my newest interest (at the moment it is learning the guitar).
