I am a highly trained and experienced counsellor specialising in the many issues that arise around midlife (authenticity, purpose and meaning, depression) and men’s issues.
Feeling lost, depressed or anxious are issues for people of all ages. We suffer, our relationships suffer and our motivation to make a contribution to the world can evaporate. To all appearances we might look like we manage more or less effectively, but that comes at a cost.
If you’ve reached the point where you want to do something about it, that’s an important start. The outer world is more likely to come right when the inner world takes priority. Solving immediate problems is important, but real sustainable growth works from the inside out. That’s how we get real. It doesn’t mean we don’t deal with the crap, but the crap gets put into perspective when we understand the life we have lived which brings us to this point. With help we can begin to rediscover purpose and meaning in our lives. Together we can tease out the innate image that has always been present in you that can make sense of your life. If you want to do that one-to-one, come for counselling. If you prefer a group setting you might want to enrol in Working with Archetypes or one of my other courses or workshops.
I’ve been a counsellor and trainer of counsellors since 2001. I also co-founded and hosted retreats for men for over a decade. I have learned a great deal from the fears and tears and joys and courage of others as well as from my own journey. I’m good at opening conversations and sensing where they need to go while remaining sensitive to your inner world. Coming to a counsellor requires courage and the willingness to be vulnerable. That’s the same courage and vulnerability that can help us make real change. Every step toward knowing yourself better and being known by someone else is a step forward. For those who are seeking one to one counselling, my studio in the Adelaide Hills is a space where you can talk, cry, laugh, shatter some myths about yourself and others, learn what’s important for you, set some goals, find some courage and confidence and begin to shape your world constructively.
Sessions are one hour but may go a bit longer, so try to set aside an hour and a quarter for an individual session.
An individual session costs $90.
