Stuart has extensive experience working with a range of individual difficulties including complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Personality Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, Depressive Disorders, Psychotic Disorders, and Trauma / Stressor-Related Disorders.

He trained in the United Kingdom where he was born, and has since worked across a wide range of mental health services both as a clinician and within leadership roles, including forensic mental health, adolescent mental health and juvenile justice, drug and alcohol clinics, and multiple modes individual and family therapy. He worked and delivered mental services in Europe, Africa, and Australia. Therapeutically working in culturally safe ways is of utmost importance to me.

For the last few years, he has specialised in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). ACT encourages clients to let go of unhelpful thoughts rather than struggling to change them. I have found that blending this with Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) is highly useful in my practice, so clients have enhanced insights into themselves and their own personal triggers to distress which can then be managed.

The process of therapy is as important to me as the therapy itself. This personal value combined with the principles of Stabilisation Based Therapy (SBT) ensures that clients always feel safe within therapy and that there is continuously a shared understanding of goals and therapeutic purpose throughout treatment.
