Maybe you feel like you don't fit in - that others seem to have 'it' and you don't. Maybe you think you don't do the 'right' things, the things you think you should be doing. Perhaps you are dogged by sadness, anxiety, confusion or fear and don't understand why this is so. It could be that you are struggling to succeed in a relationship, a job, or being socially worthy and you are frustrated at what you see as your limitations. Maybe you had a one-off traumatic experience that you feel you will never get over, or childhood and adolescent 'failures' that you feel defined by. But you also don't want to give up and are searching ...

I like to work collaboratively with clients to establish some therapeutic goals, explore creative expression, address trauma and facilitate growth. There is no prior experience with art making required as it's more about the process than the final image. There is usually a focus on sensory regulation in addition to evidence based practice that incorporates DBT skills and principles. WE are a provider for the NDIS.

I do this by getting you in touch with how you think, feel and behave so you can take ownership of your own wellbeing and set yourself on a path for a positive future. Through counselling, I can help you manage and grow beyond struggle with depression and anxiety, stress management, grief, trauma, relationships, body image, navigating the school yard or workplace stresses. By working with me, you will develop a deeper understanding of the effects that stress, anxiety and other issues can have on your wellbeing.

Men are often taught not to reach out for help. You may have been made to believe that to seek help for yourself was to admit weakness or that it would make you a burden. Maybe you don't know where to start. But you've been thinking about getting professional support for some time now, that's why you are here. You know you need help, maybe because you're experiencing social anxiety or an overwhelming difficulty to get out of bed. You might no longer enjoy the things that used to make you happy, or you're having darker, more intrusive thoughts. It's starting to impact your relationships, your work & your physical health.

Many of my clients have relationship issues with their partner, family member, or employer. Sometimes clients present with emotional difficulties, addictions, or even physical pain. If you have ever had trauma or loss in your life, then I work with your strengths to explore avenues towards happiness again. I like to explore your past and present relationships and undercover patterns, behaviours, and your reactions to situations.

When people seek healing, many come clutching a story that they and others may only have considered from one angle. Using Narrative Therapy, humour and a bit of poking, my skill lies in expanding the view so we can fully see what's going on and the influences that are keeping pain, worry or addiction alive. I have journeyed through many paths in my life, and am very comfortable talking about homelessness, child abandonment, sex work, redundancy, divorce, addiction, alcoholism, blended families and any other corners you too may find yourself backed into.

Alcohol Use Counsellors

Are there specific medications for alcohol use?

There are oral medications approved to treat alcohol use disorder—such as disulfiram, acamprosate, and naltrexone, which also comes in an injectable form. These medications do help people reduce their drinking as well as avoid the problem of relapse. Naltrexone helps reduce cravings, disulfiram can make a person feel sick when they drink, and acamprosate may help ease symptoms like poor sleep and anxious feelings.

How do alcohol recovery or rehabilitation programs work?

In inpatient programs, individuals live in a facility with other patients in recovery; in outpatient programs,individuals live at home. These facilities are staffed with healthcare professionals including physicians, nurses, psychologists, counselors, and psychotherapists. Staff can also include people who have recovered themselves, serving as mentors and guides. These programs may use abstinence, harm reduction, detoxification, psychotherapy, and other tools for recovery.

How do 12-step programs combined with psychotherapy work?

Members of 12-step programs help each other reach abstinence and work to maintain it. These programs promote complete change in the individual’s emotional, mental, physical, and even spiritual perspectives. Some programs require that new members attend 90 meetings in 90 days. Many people do attend these programs in conjunction with their work in psychotherapy; the combination of therapy along with 12-step can be extremely effective.

How does harm reduction combined with psychotherapy work?

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, harm reduction prevents death, injury, disease, overdose, and substance misuse. People who choose harm reduction for alcohol use reduce the amount of alcohol they intake. It is not abstinence-based like a 12-step program, but combining harm reduction with psychotherapy proves to be effective for many people.
