Albert is a Clinical Psychologist and a member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS). He is also a Board-Approved Clinical Supervisor. He is a passionate therapist who is committed to scientific evidence-based therapies, which are applied with his characteristically gentle and client-centered approach to create a safe and accepting atmosphere.
Albert is dedicated to a combination of skills that tailors the treatment to what the client wants and needs, that is, whether they prefer short-term cognitive and behavioural change focused on the here-and-now, or deeper psychodynamic work exploring feelings and the unconscious.
Albert believes that change first occurs from within a person – starting with their emotions, thoughts (cognitions), and behaviours. Once these have changed positively, the effects then ripple outwards to their relationships, lives, and work.
Given this belief and passion, he has been trained extensively in Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP). This is an active and focused form of psychodynamic therapy designed to provide rapid access to the patient’s inner emotional lives and heal from past painful events, conscious and unconscious. This therapy aims to provide not only symptom relief, but also deeper personality change.

Throughout all this, Albert keeps an eye on helping patients individuate, which means helping them mature and find freedom as individuals, separate from unhealthy family dynamics, resolve childhood pains, thrive, enjoy, and find meaning in life.
