Jason has worked with children, adolescents and their families for over thirty years as a teacher and more recently, as a Registered Psychologist. Having lived experience, as a parent of adult children, and as a psychologist, Jason has focussed mostly on the treatment of teenagers and adults of all ages, who have sought help for numerous reasons.
Working in private practice, Jason has supported clients with a range of presenting problems, including people with: adjustment disorder, addiction difficulties, depression, anxiety, OCD, BPD, Autism, bipolar disorder and those diagnosed with a personality disorder. Jason has treated many clients who present with trauma histories and he provides warmth and compassion and encourages healing and growth.
Using evidence based approaches endorsed by the Australian Psychological Society, Jason draws on a range of therapies that best suit the needs of individual clients. These have included Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy and Eye Movement and Desensitisation Therapy (in addition to Motivational Interviewing for assisting patients with addiction difficulties).
Outside of the practice of psychology, Jason enjoys spending time with his family and two Maltese Poms, loves watching a good documentary, listening to music from the 70s, 80s and 90s, and trying foods from different cultures.
