Hi, I’m Nick. Our life is a big journey, and we all experience difficulty at times. I understand there are times where you may feel stuck, confused, misunderstood, mistreated or overwhelmed, like your cycling in repeating patterns, or feel dependent on unsupportive habits to cope that seem impossible to break free from or change. If this sounds somehow familiar I’d really appreciate hearing from you and would appreciate the opportunity to say how I could support you to ease the pressure, feel more in control and move towards a deeper level of self-alignment and well-being.

James specialises in creating clarity where none exists. Clarity can help when we feel confused or energy and interests have fallen away. And it can help when we encounter a large obstacle and can’t see a way forward. James believes that once we have clarity we can then determine what is within our control and what is not. James is primarily a solution focused therapist and believes that we will benefit from finding a way forward. He likes to break the journey down into a step by step path into a better future. He promotes self expression and the creation of personal boundaries for safety.

I welcome clients from all backgrounds. I have spent many years working across the lifespan with children, adolescents, and adults in government, not-for-profits, with complex NDIS populations, and in private practice. I place a high value on working with individuals who may face barriers to traditional services including working with anxiety, depression, communication building, identity questions. I acknowledge the additional factors faced for clients with gender & sexuality concerns, with men & boys, and with rural populations who face considerable barriers to accessing traditional services.

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.

While it's natural to engage in pleasurable activities & behaviours, when that engagement becomes compulsive, overwhelming, and out-of-control, the negative consequences can become destructive & unmanageable, especially when addicted to Sex & Porn. We sometimes adopt these behaviours as a means of gaining momentary relief from any pain, anxiety, or trauma that exists in our lives, but regularly feel intense shame and despair after acting out sexually. Then, shame & isolation serve to maintain the addictive cycle, as the problem becomes more complex & often impacts our intimate partner. Don't despair: Help and recovery is available!

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.
