Accepting Psychological support does not mean your going ‘mental’, rather it means you are proactive in working out appropriate healthy strategies which face all of us at some point in time. These may include learning to deal with difficult people (maybe your Boss or relatives), managing depression, anger and anxiety more strategically, recover from loss and grief and feelings of hopelessness.
Originally from Canada, Gary has worked around Australia within a number of areas including on call mental Health, Family services, Community Health, corrections and academia. Gary has an interest in Chronic Pain management and has recently successfully run a Chronic Pain Management Program with Nathan Lynch (Physiotherapist) at our clinic in 2017.
Gary aims to be non-judgmental and hopefully insightful to help his clients find their strengths. If you are struggling with the impact of a disability or chronic pain you may find it useful to book an appointment with our reception to speak with Gary.
