With a strong practice underpinned by neuroscience and somatic trauma therapy approaches, I work towards creating greater tolerance toward uncomfortable sensations that arise out of difficult experiences.
As a therapist, I understand the need for warmth and acceptance. This is the foundation of a therapeutic relationship where people can show up with aspects of themselves that are problematic and unhelpful without judgement. I can relate to very human uncomfortable and undesirable behaviors, feelings and beliefs about ourselves. Through consistent support, compassion and curiosity, positive change becomes possible.

I work with individuals and couples for a wide range of concerns: anxiety & depression, relational difficulties, attachment repair, low self-esteem, lifestyle issues, somatic disturbances, trauma, PTSD & C-PTSD, grief and loss.
Whether you are experiencing difficulties in your relationship, with your family, or you are dealing with challenges at work or in your life, a therapeutic relationship can help you. I have extensive training in the integrative approach to psychotherapy and more than a decade of expertise in the practice of yoga and bodywork. For this reason, I work with both mind and body awareness and I draw upon different evidence-based models and theories to create a treatment that specifically addresses your unique experiences and concerns.

My passion lies in helping individuals living with trauma, anxiety or depression related disorders, sex based issues, interpersonal difficulties and emotional regulation issues. I use a holistic client centred approach to help clients improve their relationship with themselves through self-compassion, awareness and emotional regulation. I use a combination of trauma informed approaches such as ( Somatic Embodiment, Attachment Theory and Emotion Focussed Therapy) to support clients with emotional regulation, safely processing trauma and shifting unhelpful beliefs and unconscious patterns of behaviour.

I use a wide range of therapeutic approaches, depending on the needs of individual clients, including EMDR Therapy, Somatic Approach, Mindfulness, Focusing, Clinical Hypnosis, Qigong, Havening Techniques and Meridian Tapping.
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.

My therapeutic approach is relational and somatic .
With trauma or ongoing stress, survival energy becomes stuck in our nervous system. We might make adjustments, like seeking or avoiding certain types of situations, or clenching certain muscles to dodge tricky feelings or sensations. We believe this keeps us safe from what we fear, but it can also have us feeling trapped in patterns that take a huge toll on our lives, health and relationships. My clients and I work together to discover ways to restore a sense of inner security, peace and passion for life.

Undertaking therapy is a very personal experience. A person may come to therapy to process complex trauma, work through relationship struggles, or simply desire to get to know and understand themselves more deeply. Whatever your reason for seeking therapy, the gifts born from the process of building self-awareness benefit not only you but also those around you who you love. It is profoundly humbling to support my clients to move through adversity, unpack challenging questions, grieve, transition, and move towards wellbeing. I am dedicated to the service of helping people to build agency, inner resources, and stability.

So many people feel lonely and disconnected. This can have many causes - childhood trauma, bullying, there are numerous factors. This results in anxiety, depression, sometimes suicidal thoughts. I value people beginning to see their own self worth, to recover from anxiety, depression trauma, whatever has caused them problems. Wonderful to see people starting to cope better with life, to become fully alive and be able to have meaningful relationships. Whatever is causing you suffering doesn't need to continue, do the work and start to recover.

I'll help you find a way through whatever is bothering you by teaching you a different way of relating to your problems which will be a total relief. The changes you make will be lasting, life-enhancing and uniquely yours. You may have never had therapy, or be like many of the people I work with and have seen lots of other therapists before and nothing has really stuck. It could be a familiar old depression feeling creeping back in, you might be feeling conflicted about what to do about a situation, whatever it is, I can help. As a psychotherapist, I am unable to offer Medicare rebates.

I have been working as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist in Private Practice since 2011. My aim is to create spaces of trust for clients to explore the intricacy of their own lives, to identify the fullness and complexity of their experience, to come to terms with themselves, and to release behaviour which no longer serves them. My work is Humanistic, Person Centred and Emotion Focused, and I use the integrative approaches of my training as entry points for us to language, feel, and honour, all that we carry deeply within us.

Are you doing reasonably well in your professional world, but your personal life is in shambles? Have you done everything you thought you should do to bring you happiness, yet somehow feel something is amiss? Are you surrounded by people regularly, yet feel lonelier than ever? Or do you go from relationship to relationship, yet can never feel safe enough to deepen with the one? Have you gone down the self-help track, yet somehow feel disconnected from life? Do you feel hesitant to see a therapist, because you feel like you shouldn't have problems? Sound familiar? You're not alone. I've been there too and would love to support you.

I am an Art therapist trained in trauma informed techniques such as CPT and draw from cognitive, emotional, somatic , and creative techniques to assist my clients in their journey of recovery.
Being a therapist is my calling. I am passionate about what I do. I have always loved listening to others’ stories and soon became fervent about exploring man’s behavior and responses to unexpected events. I have lived both in ease and chaos; and have learnt to explore my thoughts in different environments. In music, ceramic, in painting or in writing, I explore my own layers of self and reform my outer with every self-encounter. I believe we human are simple in our best, but to communicate we are far more complex. I have a deep interest in art and philosophy as it make us think deeper and see the reality from different angels.

Somatic therapy may help people experience greater self-awareness and connection to others.
I support people to resolve deeply held patterns of trauma or stress related disorders that play havoc on the nervous system. These patterns and disruptions can often hold you back from fully expressing yourself or reaching your optimum levels of health and vitality. Maybe you have had stubborn health issues or an unresolved trauma that keeps playing out in your personal and professional relationships or you have a burning desire to step out and tread your own path but something is holding you back and you don't know how or where to start?
