Having a harsh inner critic, boundary or control issues, addictions, out of control emotions or feeling numb inside are all symptoms of trauma. NOT signs of weakness or personality flaws. Trauma is caused by the mix of overwhelm and powerlessness. We didn't have to suffer childhood abuse or tragedies to experience the above symptoms in life. Removal of love, criticism, expectations of who we should be or parents who struggled with their own issues were traumatic, and lead to adaptations we needed to survive. If any of these resonate, you are not alone. I talk to people like you. And like them, you too can heal.

If you're looking for a run of the mill counsellor or mental health professional to assist with your mental health queries, feel free to contact one of my very capable colleagues. I look at life through a different lens, with a transpersonal -even spiritual- mindfulness-based filter. Expect to see life from a broader perspective, while still being very practical. Expect to work from the inside out: YOU will change, and then your circumstances will. Understanding how you (and your brain) operate will help you manage your emotions and behaviour more effectively. This, in turn, will make you less sensitive to (negative) emotion-shifts.

Often people seek out a counsellor or psychotherapist as a last resort. They wait until small cracks in their life become big ones that turn into chasms and feel like they’re going to swallow them up. The reason? There is still a stigma in Australia around seeking help when we’re struggling (particularly among men). Here’s the good news: if you’re facing challenges right now, whether they’re tiny or monstrous, there’s actually nothing wrong with you! Life is just pretty complicated these days, social support is often not as strong or frequent as we need, and so we all need a bit of special support and guidance sometimes.

It's exhausting to keep trying to act like you've got it all together, all the time. Perhaps you feel like you've just been surviving through life, yet never really thriving? Perhaps you've been through traumatic life events, illnesses, cycles of break ups and burn outs, and even experiences of therapy that felt like it helped at the time but the gains quickly dissolved as life's general chaos crept back in. I'd like to help you develop a deeper understanding of yourself, your struggles and together we will safely 'untangle' the knots that keep you stuck. www.timetountangle.com.au

We can all become stuck in patterns that no longer serve us. Patterns of thoughts, emotions and behaviours that keep us stuck and get in the way of living a satisfying life. These patterns may get in the way of relationships, career/study, health and wellbeing. We may notice a lack of purpose/fulfilment and may be struggling to understand how to change this. I am collaborative in my approach and endeavour to meet you with kindness, warmth, and a non-judgemental approach.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Pacific Paradise?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Pacific Paradise specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
