I’m a registered Counsellor with a strong focus on men’s issues – supporting men through times of transitions, crises of meaning and mid-life issues. Men have particular struggles and experiences that I have gathered tools to help navigate and lighten. As a bloke, we still have a cultural expectation to cope, sort it out ourselves and just get on with it - but my experience is that challenges are much easier to face with a bit of support. The truth is, there are times in our life when things fall apart and we feel like we can’t hold it together any longer. It’s at these crunch times that we can deepen our experience of life.
I reckon life is like a quest for hidden treasure - we travel a long way and spend a lot of time searching for something that we always had, right here within us. Counselling is a way of helping you find that hidden treasure. It’s not a bad way to explain how I can help – a treasure hunt – where we search together to find what is currently hidden.
I surf, play music and write. I also run men’s retreats and appreciate the complexity of our human experience. You don't have to be struggling - you can simply need an objective ear and a fresh pair of eyes. It’s not easy to open up sometimes- I find it a challenge to accept help and see a counsellor, but if you think you’re ready for a chat, give me a buzz.

My work includes relationship struggles, life transitions and crisis of meaning and purpose. I position the issues within a persons life story and pay attention for any clues as to what might be the source. In this process the person learns about themself and becomes aware of things that had been hidden. The clarity this brings leads to a sense of relief and ease and hope for a way forward.

My core approach is to listen deeply to allow the wisdom between us, to surface. I use IFS, which explores our experience of having different parts at war within us. One says 'do this', another says 'no way!'. I help to highlight and bring acceptance to these different parts, which renews a sense of being in charge of your life, as well as connecting more deeply with who you want to be.
