Mark has been practicing as a psychologist for 16 years and finds a lot of meaning through work. He enjoys listening to people, and supporting them to transform and find freedom. Mark engages with people in a collaborative, accepting, compassionate and non-judging spirit. This is combined with his ongoing training in cognitive, behavioural, acceptance, somatic and mindfulness based approaches; including ACT, EMDR, MI and IFS. With the wave of new research and knowledge around using psychedelics for mental health, personal and spiritual growth; it’s important that people can be supported to ensure their experiences are safe and valuable. Mark provides a safe space to talk through psychedelic experiences, to integrate important insights, or to think carefully about preparation, suitability and harm minimisation.
As a psychologist, his clinical interest areas are depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress and trauma recovery, psychosis, schizophrenia, bipolar, addictions, grief, loss and experiences of existential dilemma, anguish or distress. Alongside helping people with mental health difficulties, he is equally interested in the areas that contribute to human flourishing.
