I understand the decision to begin psychotherapy can be daunting and is often prompted by a range of psychological difficulties, questions, and experiences. I offer individual psychotherapy to children, adolescents, and adults in-person at my Brisbane CBD office and by telehealth (for older adolescents and adults). I can assist young people and adults experiencing depression, anxiety, grief and loss including non-death losses, relational trauma, sexuality and gender identity concerns, low self-esteem/ chronic life dissatisfaction, relationship difficulties, and drug and alcohol dependence.

Psychotherapy is touted as being a journey of upwards progression, though from experience we know that psychotherapy is difficult and requires commitment from both the psychotherapist and the client. If you are struggling with understanding yourself, your situation, or how life seems to be keeping you from achieving your potential, then I may be able to assist you.

How are things going for your children? You might have stumbled across something thats really worried you. Maybe they've pulled back into social media or video games. Perhaps they're having some eating issues. The GP may be saying they have anxiety or depression. If you're still reading, things are probably feeling pretty off between you, your kid(s) and other important people. These problems might have you wondering if you've stuffed up as a parent, or fearing the worst if things don't improve. It's painful because it really matters. I have helped hundreds of families, facing problems like these, get their lives back on track.

I believe people come to therapy when they are stuck, and desire change, and my theory as to this stuckness is that old ways of being with themselves or others are now not working. I have a deep passion for supporting those during such difficult or transitional moments in their life by offering a non-judgemental space and a genuine relationship built on mutual respect. My hope for you is that we can use these conditions to curiously explore and compassionately understand your concerns to find the change you seek. In its simplest form, my style is person-centered, emotionally driven talk therapy.

Men are often taught not to reach out for help. You may have been made to believe that to seek help for yourself was to admit weakness or that it would make you a burden. Maybe you don't know where to start. But you've been thinking about getting professional support for some time now, that's why you are here. You know you need help, maybe because you're experiencing social anxiety or an overwhelming difficulty to get out of bed. You might no longer enjoy the things that used to make you happy, or you're having darker, more intrusive thoughts. It's starting to impact your relationships, your work & your physical health.

Male Counsellors

As a man, why might I want to see a male therapist?

There are many reasons a man might wish to work with a male therapist, including a degree of shared identity, which may help client and therapist connect to each other and allow for a more free-flowing discussion of issues that can be deeply personal. Some men may feel more comfortable talking to a male therapist about relationship concerns, the pressures they feel around the roles society and family place on men, career or job challenges, self-esteem, or anger problems. For some men who have not had a male role models in their lives, a good male therapist may be especially helpful.

How can I find out about a therapist’s experience treating men?

Individuals looking for treatment should feel comfortable directly asking a therapist about their history treating men overall and the issues that arise in therapy with men. A good therapist will be happy to discuss such matters as well as their educational background, approach to treatment, and how they think they can aid a prospective client. Prospective clients should also ask what the expectation is for treatment, and what the fee structure is, and whether and which insurance plans are accepted.

Can clients benefit from having a therapist of the same gender?

Therapy is not gender-specific, but some men as well as women feel more comfortable opening up about their experiences and history with a male therapist. An individual may feel that they have to explain less background information and be on the same page more quickly, particularly when discussing gender-specific challenges, in the case of male clients. Some women have prior negative experiences with women that predispose them to prefer working with a male in therapy. That said, a good clinician can transcend most if not all gender concerns. Ultimately, the most important factor in therapy is the connection and trust the client is able to build with the practitioner.

Would a male therapist have specific training in treating men?

Generally, no. There are no certifications for treating men specifically, but there are continuing education classes that therapists may take that focus on treating men as a group. There are many therapists who focus on men and male issues in their treatment and therefore have experience and expertise in this domain.
