Counselling & Psychotherapy
I am a clinical and counselling psychologist. I still enjoy working with clients after 30 years of doing so. I am available for consultations in the Melbourne CBD.
Coaching & Mentoring
Business coaching and mentoring has become a speciality for me. I wrote a book about setting up a psychology private practice (Fit for practice) which was based on 30 years of psychology practice management. I have worked as a solo practitioner, with a business partner in a regional setting and as a group practice manager for 17 years in Williamstown, a suburb of Melbourne operating Kaye Frankcom & Associates, a seven-figure turnover practice.
Supervision with me can encompass case presentation, developing the supervisee’s ability to work effectively with a range of client presentations, viewing videos of their work together, reviewing everything from clinical assessment to case formulation and treatment planning.

I was reading Saturday’s Age and came upon an article in the Business Section entitled Behind closed doors, CEOs literally weep (p.8) which was triggered by the then NAB CEO Andrew Thorburn saying he was going to take an extra four weeks Long Service Leave in addition to his annual leave at Christmas time 2018.

What are the traps to avoid, the questions to ask, the knowledge needed to succeed? Find out here in this book written by three highly experienced psychologists with more than 75 years of private practice experience between them as well as backgrounds in academic training, dealing with complaints about psychologists, training and supervision of psychologists, and presenting as expert witnesses.
