PSYCHOLOGIST

Eric’s psychological focus is the treatment of long standing problematic presentations especially in regards to the role and effects of trauma in people’s lives, depression that has not responded to other treatments and changes in personality following prolonged unresolved trauma and depression.

For over 30 years he has gained a broad range of clinical experience and skills with psychological interventions with adults in prison and psychiatric settings such as major mental illnesses including schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, personality disorders and violent behavior. He previously worked in a psychiatric unit as a clinical psychologist for NSW Health and for over 10 years as the senior clinical psychologist for a Victorian mental health service. Throughout his public service career, Eric has conducted private practice in Victoria and over the past 5 years in the Northern Rivers.

He continues his passion about using psychological treatments to empower and support adults and assist the acceptance and management of profoundly distressing life changing experiences. For example, through exploration and understanding of life experiences, biological and psychophysiological factors, the development of cognitive and behavioral skills can be utilized to improve quality of life and to provide coping tools.
