My name is Nathan Phillips and I am a Senior Clinical Psychologist. I work with people who feel stuck, helping them to figure out both what matters to them and how they can move in a direction aligned with their values.
Who I help
I help anyone who feels stuck. It might be to do with the past, present or future. They might feel like they have no one else to talk to, or like they’ve tried everything else.
Right now it's really tough.
What I do
I work with people to figure out what matters to them. Then I help them make a plan, to move in a direction aligned with those values. It’s more about direction than perfection, as their journey continues long after our time together.
Often small insights and ideas can make
really big differences.
How I work
I have a relaxed and real approach. Although the work we do is tough, I use lightness to create a space where no subject is off limits. I also bring an evidence-based view, which means the therapies I use are proven to be effective.
It’s a safe space to talk about anything
Areas I work in
I work with people in their individual context rather than focusing on a diagnosis. Common areas they come to me for include anxiety, depression, stress, OCD, trauma, abuse, phobias, anger, or relationship issues.
Therapies I use
I primarily draw from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR).
