Our sessions are an opportunity for you to feel safe, seen and heard as you reflect on and express the issues affecting you. These issues can include dating and break-ups, big life transitions, discrimination or bullying, isolation and loneliness, grief, self-acceptance, anxiety, and depression. My role is to facilitate your progress and self-exploration, rather than to give advice.

Zac is a clinical psychologist who typically works with clients experiencing difficulties with anxiety, mood, managing emotions, coping with stress or dealing with conflict in relationships. He enjoys working with clients to increase understanding of how they got to where they are now, reduce suffering, build skills, develop goals and meaning. Clients often come in crisis, when they have tried everything and struggled for a long time, but continue long after crisis has resolved to work on creating a fuller and better life.
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.
I am a clinical psychologist typically working with clients with chronic mental illness or long term difficulties that appear to form a life pattern (e.g., persistent difficulty with maintaining employment/relationships, long standing low self esteem). I have had varied experience with different client groups, working within public mental health, assessment clinics, student support and private practice. In each of these settings my aim has been for my clients to feel heard, increase their self-understanding, and gain hope toward their improvement.
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.
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.
