“Seeking support for mental health concerns can be daunting and a big step to take, but it can make a huge difference to your life. Therapy gives you a safe space to understand your thoughts and feelings about yourself, as well as how you relate to others. In our sessions, we’ll explore your difficulties, reasons behind your struggles and how to create a life less dominated by these challenges.”
Anne is a clinical psychologist who works with adults and adolescents. She treats a wide range of presentations including anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction, relationship difficulties, workplace issues and personality disorders. She is especially skilled in substance use and addiction issues as well as relationship and interpersonal issues.
Anne is originally from Norway and migrated to Australia in 2018. She has worked in various public and private sectors including a Drug & Alcohol team at a public outpatient mental health unit. She is also a board-approved supervisor, qualified by the Australian Psychological Society (APS) to provide supervision for other psychologists.
Anne’s strength lies in her ability to connect with people and foster strong relationships with her clients. She believes that the therapeutic alliance is crucial; nothing can happen in therapy without a safe working relationship between the client and therapist. She provides a safe environment for her clients to explore their difficulties and reasons behind their struggles. This enables her to guide them in creating a life less dominated by their challenges. Anne finds it deeply rewarding to witness aspects of her clients’ lives, being trusted with their stories, and being allowed to partake in their journey towards change.
Throughout her practice, Anne has learnt that there is rarely a “right” and “wrong” – people hold different perspectives with equal value. She believes that working towards becoming more aware of our own perspectives and that of others can help us greatly in understanding our own needs and other people’s needs.
Anne’s counselling style is relational, flexible and eclectic. She draws from a range of techniques including cognitive behavioural therapy, dialectic behaviour therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, polyvagal theory, attachment theory, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, mindfulness, emotion-focused therapy and schema therapy.
When she isn’t working, Anne enjoys spending time with her family, being in the great outdoors, exercising, going to the beach and travelling.
