About

Self-care is more important than ever. Life is often full of ups and downs, but the past few years have been particularly challenging for many people. Counselling provides some time that is all about you, where you can discuss what being you feels like, without judgement. Taking the first step to making changes in your life is a bold and brave move. As a counsellor I will celebrate you in your strengths and support you in your difficulties. Counselling is something everyone can benefit from. See if I am the right counsellor for you
I practice an integrative therapeutic approach, based in person centred and narrative approaches, that is tailored to your needs. I offer a warm, caring, and non-judgemental space for you to explore and understand your strengths and resources in a trauma informed way. I am experienced in working with LGBTIQ+ folks.
I'm excited to embark on this journey with you. I'm originally from the UK and moved to Melbourne in 2014. I love living here and am eager to give back to the community. I can meet you in consultation rooms near Flagstaff station, or online or by telephone. e-mail tom@compassionandjoycounselling.com
