Therapy is a very personal experience so it’s important that you feel comfortable with your therapist and believe they’re a good fit for you. People will decide to see a psychologist for a range of different reasons... Often they’re experiencing some kind of stress, relationship difficulties, trauma or addiction … or sometimes they feel they just need someone to talk to. We start by talking about what brings you to the session. You may have clearly defined goals of what you’d like to achieve or, perhaps you’re not sure and you’re just trying to get a better understanding of yourself and your life experiences. Therapy is also about encouraging you to consider different ways of thinking, trying new strategies and learning new skills. It's ok if you feel that you’re stepping outside of your comfort zone. It’s not always easy to be in therapy, it takes a lot of courage to start, and to continue the process.

I specialise in addiction and trauma.
My goal in therapy is to create a safe, confidential space where you are able to talk openly about your life, without feeling judged. As your therapist, I will give you the time and care to really understand where you are coming from and give you constructive feedback that empowers you to set realistic goals, make appropriate changes and have strong, genuine relationships. In three words I am kind, honest, attuned.

People come to therapy because they want to help to live a better life. They want things to change but are not quite sure how to make these changes. They often express themselves as feeling quite "stuck". I see symptoms such as an addiction , an eating disorder, depression and anxiety as not merely events to be removed by magic words or medication , but as indicators that the way the person is living their life is unsatisfactory to them. They may lack the insight that could help them live a more fulfilling life; to be able to make healthier choices or to simply lead a less chaotic or dramatic life.

I am a qualified therapist, mental health trainer and crisis supporter. I will listen, support and guide you when you want. You decide how. You might like to meet at my Balmain rooms, online, or at a beach or park near you.

From collaborating with different people through therapy over the years, I have noticed that even everyday people feel the effects of modern life on their mental health. This is because modern life comes with a lot of complexity and demands. Today, people pursue a combination of identity, lifestyle, fulfilment, achievement, supportive relationships, a work-life balance, financial gain, career progression, a bigger world purpose, and more. The pursuit is wonderful, however navigating these demands can strain our mental health over time.

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).

We all go through tough and challenging times. Perhaps this is the first time you've struggled mentally or emotionally and your feeling overwhelmed, stressed and under resourced to know what to do. Maybe you haven't bounce back as well as you hoped. Perhaps your previous style of coping and managing is no longer working. Whether you are grieving, having difficulty in relationship or navigating change, I can help. What you need is somewhere to work through all these feelings, experiences, and new realities. A space to speak your truth, build new skills, express your feelings and reconnect with yourself, your desires and goals.

Society has viewed addiction as a weakness that you are powerless over or a defect of character only impacting those from lower socioeconomic status. The reality is that addiction doesn't discriminate!

My background includes working in the nonprofit sector with Trauma, Addiction and Mental Health.
Every person is unique. Every person will experience hardship, trauma and challenges in their lives. But it’s the unique experience of biology, family & culture that contribute to how we understand and deal with these challenges. Our unique world view influences everything we do! It influences our relationships, our work choices, the way we deal with conflict and the way we manage our emotions. I work in an individualized way, where we will discover what is and isn’t working for you. Do you find it difficult to maintain healthy, long relationships? Do you find it hard managing your emotions? Let’s talk and see what’s going on.
