I have worked with clients experiencing Depression, Bipolar, PTSD, Trauma, Stress, Anger, Borderline Personality, OCD, doing ECT therapy, Relationship issues, Loss of job, Bullying, Grief & bereavement. Humans have for eons found solace with shamen, healers or another member of the community that would listen. As a Counsellor, I offer a safe place to talk about these issues, whatever they maybe. Having 30 years of frontline experience I know life can offer challenges where our very survival is not assured. Part of such challenges is how we make sense, how we work through them to create a new reality.

Doing life can be hard and sometimes overwhelms us. Loss of control and enjoyment of life can bring trauma and challenges. I believe everyone can regain hope and restoration to live a fulfilling life. My life experiences include secondary-school teaching; as a husband and dad in raising a now-adult family; pastoral care; Christian counselling; and alcohol and drug counselling.

Like most psychologists I use different approaches - narrative therapy, family systems, mindfulness, CBT. My main focus is EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) and ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy). So, some of what I do might seem familiar and other techniques may be new to you. Whatever the case, it is important that clients experience therapy as transparent - I am always ready to discuss what we are doing, why we are doing it and what the expected outcome is. The idea is to provide clients with an accepting and non-judgmental environment so they can talk honestly and express difficult emotions.

Jay works with adults to overcome traumatic stress. Emerging trauma literature suggests that traumatic stress underpins most mental health diagnoses, including depression, anxiety, ADHD, bipolar, and borderline personality. Those living with traumatic stress typically feel numb, disconnected, afraid, alone, empty, and unsafe. They are often confused about why they feel bad and frequently ask, “what's wrong with me?” They can be disconnected from themselves, their loved ones, or the world around them, and they often have an addiction they use to reduce their pain. Ultimately, they want to feel safe, but this can feel unobtainable.

Fear of the unknown is very common and is probably why most people are reluctant to start therapy. If you are struggling with feeling overwhelmed, worried for the future or feeling down and depressed then I encourage you to take the step to find a therapist that you click with. Using strategies that we know works is important, but it is also known that the relationship with your therapist is the most important thing in helping you to move forward. I work with many members of the community, and am especially equipped to work with LGBTIQA+ clients. I also have a lot of experience working with trauma.

Hey my name’s Chris, I’m a Clinical Psychologist working out of Fremantle. I work best with people who feel like things are off in life but can’t quite put their finger on what. People who feel grim even though they have a “good life” on paper. People that struggle with intense emotions which they tend to cover up with work or comfort seeking. People that feel like the past is somehow holding them back. A lot of the people I see aren’t sure why the feel the way they do, or how to feel better. Sometimes they know what to do but can’t quite put it all together. Sometimes they just want to talk and feel heard and understood.

Change is a universal, life constant - and yet it so often resisted. It seems to happen without our consent, against our will - and too often without active measures to make the most of it. Working compassionately with people in all the throes of change, in a counselling, educational and facilitative capacity, I see the vast difference in process and outcome between those who lean into and own the experience, as opposed to those who resist or dread change and see themselves as victims of something beyond their influence or control - It's no mystery which type adapts better. So why not choose to thrive amid change?

Male Counsellors

As a man, why might I want to see a male therapist?

There are many reasons a man might wish to work with a male therapist, including a degree of shared identity, which may help client and therapist connect to each other and allow for a more free-flowing discussion of issues that can be deeply personal. Some men may feel more comfortable talking to a male therapist about relationship concerns, the pressures they feel around the roles society and family place on men, career or job challenges, self-esteem, or anger problems. For some men who have not had a male role models in their lives, a good male therapist may be especially helpful.

How can I find out about a therapist’s experience treating men?

Individuals looking for treatment should feel comfortable directly asking a therapist about their history treating men overall and the issues that arise in therapy with men. A good therapist will be happy to discuss such matters as well as their educational background, approach to treatment, and how they think they can aid a prospective client. Prospective clients should also ask what the expectation is for treatment, and what the fee structure is, and whether and which insurance plans are accepted.

Can clients benefit from having a therapist of the same gender?

Therapy is not gender-specific, but some men as well as women feel more comfortable opening up about their experiences and history with a male therapist. An individual may feel that they have to explain less background information and be on the same page more quickly, particularly when discussing gender-specific challenges, in the case of male clients. Some women have prior negative experiences with women that predispose them to prefer working with a male in therapy. That said, a good clinician can transcend most if not all gender concerns. Ultimately, the most important factor in therapy is the connection and trust the client is able to build with the practitioner.

Would a male therapist have specific training in treating men?

Generally, no. There are no certifications for treating men specifically, but there are continuing education classes that therapists may take that focus on treating men as a group. There are many therapists who focus on men and male issues in their treatment and therefore have experience and expertise in this domain.
