I work with people of various cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds in both specialist health services (justice, family violence), schools (from Prep to Year 12) and specialist mental health services (adult residential services). I also facilitate group wellbeing programs for individuals & businesses, and have co-facilitated group workshops focused on teaching people practical skills to manage distress. I work best with people who are ready to take what we discuss in session, and implement this in their lives. I am a Director on the board with Australian Association of Psychologists Incorporated (AAPi).
I understand that one needs significant courage to take the first step towards therapy, and therefore I aim to provide a safe environment where you will feel comfortable to openly discuss any issues in a non-judgmental, warm, empathic, and supportive manner. We will explore your current difficulties and invite you to consider what you would like to be different. You will set the direction for our work and I will walk alongside you, as we identify and work on the strategies and actions that support you the best to build the life you want.
If you have had a head or brain injury, or if you notice thinking changes, and it is impacting on work/life - our team of neuropsychologists can provide assessment and treatment recommendations to assist you.
I'm an experienced clinical psychologist and work with a wide range of mental health concerns including stress, depression, guilt and shame, sleep difficulties, bullying, relationship concerns, and burnout. I also have a special interest in working with anxiety and trauma related conditions including post-traumatic stress and early life attachment concerns. I'm passionately dedicated to working with my clients to build hope, strength, and resilience in a safe and welcoming space. My clients can expect warmth, compassion, and a collaborative approach as we work together to meet your goals.
If you are feeling overwhelmed, tired, hopeless or lacking joy; like your emotions are uncontrollable or that they do not match with reality; that your worry is getting out of hand or that there is no longer any point, then it might be a good time to seek some support. We are social creatures, and despite what our modern society might have us believe, we all need human connection to function. Seeking support is a huge sign of strength – the strength to actually reach out and let someone in, in order to start the healing process. If you can relate to this or if you have set yourself a personal development goal please reach out.
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 journey of adversity, grief, loss & marginalisation led me to uncovering the intelligence of our brain & nervous system. Via my insight that 'repeatedly talking 'about' my challenges didn't serve me, I specialised in body-based creative modalities. I focus on body-based processes that ground us in the tumultuous inner world and regulate us in the outer environment I am an expert in inviting creative expression, building strength & somatic resourcing and sensory bottom-up awareness. I affirm all abilities, gender preferences, cultural identities and neurodivergence. I am interested in adapting the therapeutic processes to meet U.
