I am a trauma-informed psychotherapist, relationship counsellor, gong therapist, breathwork practitioner that firmly believes in the value of human life. I have experience in a range of areas including marriage/relationship issues, anxiety and stress, trauma, depression, loneliness, family of origin issues, parenting, grief and loss, personal growth and development, special need supports and chronic health related concerns. I am warm, caring and insightful. I am here to support your integration, and all of the various parts of your personality and being, into a balanced and joyful whole, made up of body, mind and soul.
Whether it is through therapy or through psychological testing, my passion is helping individuals understand themselves. My ideal client is someone who is very motivated to make change and committed to the process. A special interest of mine is seeing individuals who are uncertain or have given up on psychologists being able to help. The primary things that I work with in my current role is therapy around mood regulation (whether it is anxiety, depression or panic) or whether it is assessing whether someone has a neurodevelopment disorder (ADHD, Dyslexia, intellectual disability etc).
I specialise in treating behavioural and emotional problems such as autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, anxiety, depression, PTSD, in children, adolescents and adults. I believe that working collaboratively and honouring clients' knowledge and experience are keys for change. I also have more than 20 years of experience in cognitive, educational and behavioural assessment of young people and adults.

It can be difficult to reach out and seek help... the first step is often the hardest. To gain the most out of the therapy process it can be helpful to be motivated and committed to wanting something in your life/ relationships/ self/ circumstance or situation to be different. This helps you to stay clear about what you want to get out of the counselling process and stay focussed on your goals for change.
Whatever your concern, my goal is to help you live your life to its full potential - at work, home and in your relationships with others. I aim to help you find insight into your unique approach to life, relationships and problems. My approach is to provide a safe, supportive and confidential environment to explore your very personal and often painful concerns and psychological distress. A collaborative exploration of your inner strengths to find a path forward, realistic solutions and an acceptance of what cannot be changed.
My name is Eitan, a professional Counsellor, Psychotherapist and an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker - Medicare Provider, with over 30 years of experience derived from a variety of workplace settings including community mental health, hospitals, Headspace and private practice in NSW. My passion is to support and work with people through their emotional journey to articulate their desired change, help them recover from their emotional pains and to bring their desired change to fruition. I work with individuals and couples, either via Telehealth or in person at my home psychotherapy clinic in St Ives (Upper North Shore).
I provide evening and Saturday morning sessions. I specialise in supporting clients through major changes in their life eg. a new relationship, challenges in an existing relationship, end of a relationship, job loss, bereavement, diagnosis of a serious illness. As a male counsellor clients have said that this brings a different perspective on clarifying their issues. With nearly 20 years and 6,000 sessions experience I have worked with individuals and couples, locally, interstate, and overseas who are experiencing unexpected shifts in their life circumstances. I offer face-to-face and Zoom sessions.
I have a core interest in working with adolescence and adults. I work extensively with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, stress and adjustment difficulties. I believe that regardless of place, a person's wellbeing is important, playing a large role in how they function in their day-to-day lives and consequently affecting their families, friends, schools, neighbourhoods, and communities-at-large. My therapeutic approach is predominately drawn from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
Life is never a smooth sailing. It is full of ups and downs and sometimes nasty surprises. It might be difficult to think, sometimes, that things can get better. There may be troubles at work with boss or a co-worker, unsettled feelings around in-laws, difficulties in resolving issues with a partner, or even issues within yourself. As difficult as those issues may sound, it is possible to attend to them, and with the right help, to resolve them.
I am a compassionate 'Person Centered' Counsellor supporting you to re- learn how to develop an optimistic sense of self, helping you to understand the roots and cause of internal conflicts. Change is not something we do. It arises out of a deeper experience with ourselves. Whether it be negative mindset, anxiety, depression, fear, relationship issues, chronic illness. It takes time to change entrenched behaviours developed in your lifespan. The therapeutic process of counselling, enables change of unwanted behaviours - using practical ways, making better life choices, one step at a time in a private and safe space.
Whether you are completely new to therapy, or have had treatment before, I aim to help you feel at ease, understood, and supported from the outset. I believe in a collaborative approach to therapy, and so I will work together with you to develop a shared understanding of your difficulties. We will then come up with a treatment plan that best suits your unique needs, goals, and preferences.
Are you anxious or depressed, feeling isolated, lonely or overwhelmed? Are you struggling to manage some complicated emotional challenges? Maybe it’s difficult for you to get through a day without collapsing in an emotional heap. You may be dealing with the ending of an important relationship or you are struggling to come to terms with the death of someone you loved, feeling unable to cope with the grief you are experiencing. You may find it difficult to deal with a major life transition or with changes in your health or your body. Or maybe you just don’t know who you are anymore and you want more out of life.
I am passionate about working with individuals and couples to create a deeper awareness of themselves and a stronger sense of self that ultimately leads to more fulfilling relationships. I specialise in helping couples identify and work through replacing unhealthy patterns with healthier, more connected ways of being together. I support individuals and couples in understanding how their own individual growth and development is key to deeper and more fulfilling relationships.
As a clinical psychologist I treat adolescents and adults with a wide range of mental health issues including anxiety, depression, PTSD, and addiction. I aim to provide an empathetic and warm approach to help people improve their mental health and their quality of life.
My counselling draws on my belief that each client's treatment needs to be individualized to his or her unique history and life story, culture, values, strengths and needs. I believe in creating a safe, supportive and non - judgmental environment in which the client will be treated with respect and confidentiality. It is here that the client is supported in finding their value, healing and strength in resolving their struggles and pain. My sincere wish is for my clients to leave the counselling process changed and equipped with new skills to approach their future with confidence and resilience.
