He has experience in treating anxiety, stress, depression, mood dysregulation, grief, loss, shame, guilt, low self-esteem, eating disorders, personality disorders, as well as behaviours of addiction.  He has assisted people with issues arising from interpersonal relationships, as well as family conflicts and carer support.  Additionally, Tim has supported many patients in adjustment to cancer diagnosis and treatment, end of life issues, as well as managing chronic illness and pain.

Tim’s therapeutic approach is to work with clients to nurture their capacity for self-awareness, self-compassion and self-acceptance.  His work is evidence-based, client-centred, professional, and guided by the core values of care and kindness. He also sees great importance in working collaboratively with his clients and their family members or support systems, where possible.  These therapeutic goals are further complemented by his extensive experience and practice in a variety of meditation techniques. 

Additionally, Tim has a degree in Philosophy, which greatly informs and enriches his clinical practice.  His role as an advocate and a promoter of social justice is reflected in his work in policy developments aimed at improving the resources of Victorian mental health facilities.
