I'm a clinical psychologist in private practice with particular expertise in LGBTQIA + wellbeing. Alongside my focus on LGBTQIA + mental health, I'm interested in working with ​anyone looking to learn skills to manage difficult thoughts, feelings, and experiences. I have particular interest and experience working with anxiety disorders, university students, grief (especially following a death by suicide), and unhelpful behavioural patterns (e.g., procrastination, perfectionism, people-pleasing).

Caring & non-judgemental counselling for LGBTQIA + folk. You may have been feeling bad about yourself and have noticed that you have been acting in inauthentic ways. Perhaps you are worried others won’t accept the real you. It’s been difficult to share your self-critical thoughts with others. I help LGBTQIA + folk with a non-Judgmental and caring space to explore and better understand and process their distress.

Proud member of LGBTQIA +.
We have all been affected by the state of the world in recent years. In combination with the challenges of every day life many of us have moved out of our window of tolerance leaving our nervous systems feeling taxed. Relieving stress can be a process of disengaging from negative patterns and feedback loops while re-engaging with crucial resources. That being said, stress has a physical quality to it and learning to release it from our bodies by leading a more present, mindful and embodied life day by day is an important and often overlooked part of the process.

It is important that you feel empowered and in control of the sessions which means that we will work together to find out what works for you and your needs. Areas I am particularly interested in are self-esteem and self-growth, trauma healing, managing anxiety and gender and sexuality exploration.

As an LGBTQIA + person myself, I am deeply committed to, and passionate about our community.
We often come to therapy when we are anticipating or experiencing change; endings and new beginnings. I use a mixture of talk and Art therapy to work with people through changes; in identity, relationships, sexuality, health, career and family; if it's a change you're in, or a change you're wanting or needing. I work with the LGBTQIA + community and our allies, friends and family. Together we can explore the parts of you that come with endings and change; grief and loss, anger, anxiety and depression. In doing this, we can become curious and generate movement towards new-beginnings and new chapters.

I have 18 years of clinical counselling experience and have worked in the areas of general mental health, addiction services and LBGTIQ+ (focus on trans and gender diverse people) specialty services I am interested in the multiple ways that people take up identities and the spaces that people occupy in relation to these identities. My work has been deeply informed by collaborative approaches to the therapeutic relationship and the importance of deep listening. I am not so interested in what is already known but what can be known through the therapeutic alliance in order to find a way forward that is particular to each person.

Therapy can have profound benefits and can lead to lasting change, but it only works when you are ready, and feel trusting of your therapist. For my part, I seek to provide a warm, non-judgemental space for you to explore and experience whatever is most needed at the time—a supportive and curious approach that allows for rich and meaningful relational and inner-world development. If you have been feeling stuck in a cycle, overwhelmed, are experiencing grief or loss, want to make a change or cultivate your strengths, I will work collaboratively with you to enable your growth.

I am an integrative therapist who loves working with people who are willing to be curious about themselves and others. I specialise in a process of somatic integration called Focusing, in which attention is placed not only on thoughts, emotions, and behaviours, but also on the body’s immediate, moment-to-moment reactions and processing. This allows clients to be warmly and safely ‘in company’ with themselves, especially those parts that are difficult to access or listen to. By acknowledging, allowing, listening, and responding to oneself from a place of genuine interest, the opportunities for expansion, ease, and joy are endless.

Hi, my name is Josh. I specialise in working with clients with trauma (PTSD), anxiety, depression and chronic conditions by facilitating Body-Mind Processing practices. I use Buddhist Psychotherapy as my therapeutic framework. Buddhist Psychotherapy is a non-religious, brain science-focused and compassion-oriented framework, which can combine evidence-based counselling methods with body-mind integrative practices for a restored sense of wellbeing. My practice focuses on the body’s innate wisdom to work out solutions to the presented issues, as well as working with emotions as the vehicles to connect body-and-mind.

We often reach a point in life where it’s important to move on from the old and embrace the new. This may feel challenging and overwhelming in the short term, but it can also be an incredibly fulfilling and enriching experience in the long term. As a counsellor, my priority is to create a safe and therapeutic space where you can be heard without judgement and met with respect and empathy. To me, understanding trauma and resilience is highly important: what trauma means and how it can affect us is an important step to self-discovery. And what makes up your resilience? Learning again, but this time with more meaning and motivation.

People come to see me for a lot of different reasons. For instance, you might be experiencing depression or anxiety, having relationship difficulties (whether you're single or partnered), going through a major life transition or loss, or wondering about the overall direction of your life. You may have a sense that there's something more to life -- that you could be living a richer life, and thriving more than you are right now. I'm here to support you and examine what's working and not, whether you're seeking a major transformation, or simply a deeper understanding of your life patterns.
