Whether we’re doing a psychological assessment, diagnosis or court report, you’ll always be in a safe space based on trust and respect. Some people are at ease from the beginning while others are anxious, scared, intimidated or embarrassed. I’m prepared for any or all of these possibilities and will guide you throughout our session.
Jon is a highly experienced psychologist who focuses on court reports, cognitive assessments, psychometric testing and the diagnosis of ADHD and dyslexia. He works with adolescents and adults, with differing levels of severity, from mild concerns to the extreme and debilitating, across many different cultures and belief systems.
Over the past 15 years, Jon has worked across a number of public and private settings. In a previous role as a Neurotherapist, he focused on the assessment, diagnosis and treatment – predominantly utilising neurofeedback – of ADHD, ODD and other neurodevelopmental disorders of childhood and adolescence. His work with adults included the many manifestations of depression and anxiety as well as adult ADHD.
Jon also performs psychological assessments for NDIS reviews and helps NDIS clients with long-term treatment. His areas of expertise include depression, anxiety, anger management, obsessive compulsive disorder, work/life stress, bereavement, relationships, sleep disorders and addictions. Jon’s emphasis is more on the individual and less on the “disorder”. His therapeutic approach is individualistic and eclectic. He integrates multiple therapeutical techniques to best suit the unique needs of each client.
In his practice, Jon looks at the association between the person’s cognitions, behaviours and emotions. He investigates the interplay between their thought patterns, mood regulation, and different types of behaviour including physiology, sleep patterns, exercise, daily movement and level of function. In this process, he uncovers the client’s belief systems, which are not necessarily based on what’s “right or wrong” but on what the individual believes to be true about the world around them. This often differs from person to person and can be a useful tool to carry throughout life, long after therapy has ceased.
Besides being a psychologist, Jon is also a musician. He’s classically trained on the piano and it’s one of his personal passions. When he isn’t working, he is often playing or listening to music.
