You might be facing challenges such as anxiety or depression, navigating change, past trauma, unresolved grief, or exploring identity. You might be supporting a child, partner or parent through crisis or difficulty; learning how to manage a health condition; wanting to change unhelpful patterns or behaviours; or be in the process of repairing a relationship. You might be working towards self-awareness, using therapy as part of your self-care plan. Or, you might not know what you need, other than that you need help finding out. As a counsellor, I offer you my empathy and my support.

Hi, my name is Patrick and I cannot tell you how excited I am to be able to provide you with this service. As a Queer person from a CALD background who grew up in a conservative community with a high stigma around mental health, I understand what it is like to develop and live with poor mental health as a result of systemic concerns. Throughout my personal and professional life, I’ve always found it difficult to find a service that holistically caters to the mental health of people that live in complex systems (e.g., accounting for racial injustice, systemic oppression, complex trauma, and the patriarchy… to name a few).

Have you ever felt overwhelmed by negative emotions, reacted by losing your temper with a loved-one and then felt sorry, lost, & helpless? Unresolved problems or traumatic experiences can result in a wide range of physical, emotional & behavioural issues such as appetite, insomnia, stress, anxiety, depression, reaching for the booze or even domestic violence. Inevitably, these situations take a toll on you personally & on all your close relationships, leading to further negativity & additional problems, you just know that something is wrong & changes must be made. Behavioral/Emotional/Conflicts/issues don't occur overnight!
Therapy can be a big step and decision and it is important that your therapist is someone you feel safe and supported by, that you are respected and so are your strengths and capacities. I work in a holistic and supportive way working with clients to heal, and achieve the outcomes that they choose. I have worked for a number of years with survivors of childhood sexual assault, adult sexual assault, intimate partner and other violence and also work with those who use violence.
My aim is to help clients to reach their full potential in a confidential environment, to provide a supportive and nonjudgmental professional service, to challenge clients to develop new pathways and to help them to be empowered. I have developed skills in a range of evidenced-based counselling modalities. These include Acceptance and Commitment therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialetical Behavioural Therapy and a Person Centred Approach. I love working with children and families. I believe that in our modern life we all need support.

It's OK to feel daunted by the prospect of counselling; sessions with me will be collaborative and will go at your own pace. There will be no judgment, you won't have to talk about anything that feels too painful until you are ready and I will not tell you what to do. Sometimes people think they have to be “crazy” or have mental health issues, or have experienced a severe trauma to see a therapist. My response is, if it’s important to you, then it’s worth talking about with someone. It doesn’t matter how small you think the issue is, talking about it can help.
