About Counselling

Everyone of us, including the best, experience challenges. If you want a life where you are at peace with yourself and is healthy, it requires you give it attention. Sometimes a little help is needed.

I take the time to understand you and your situation. I also offer practical, essential help to enhance your life. Additionally, I provide useful handouts, articles and a newsletter full of helpful tips and suggestions.

Counselling with Me Can Help You to:

  • Break destructive patterns of anger and abusive/violent behaviour and to learn how to tap into your inner strength.
  • Always act and behave in your long-term best interest.
  • Feel great about yourself
  • Resolve conflict
  • Grow and heal after a relationship breakdown
  • Learn emotional intelligence - a major contributor to long-term success in life. Even more important than IQ.

I may not have all the answers, but I do know that a good relationship with yourself and others is universally essential to a satisfying life.

My Commitment to You

  • I will act with integrity, honesty and openness in everything I do for and with you.
  • I am able to be contacted by email anytime.
  • If I am unavailable, I answer you message promptly.
  • I will be upfront about my fees. Currently, consultations are $90 during business hours and $110 after hours. Counselling sessions are about 50 minutes duration.
  • Counselling fees are not generally reimbursed by private health funds although consultations related to your employment may be tax deductible.
  • I will keep everything you say confidential within this practice unless you have given me permission to speak to others; I need to talk to other helping professionals with whom I am working, are required to do so by law, or I believe you are at risk of harm to yourself or others.
  • I will retain our notes of your sessions but destroy these after a 7 year period.
  • I will be open to your feedback and adjusting my approach so that you are 100% satisfied.

Your Commitment to Me

  • You will be open, frank and honest with me at all times. You will let me know immediately of any concerns you have about our work together.
  • You will give me a minimum of 24 hours notice if you need to change your appointment.
  • You understand that if you are late, give less than 24 hours notice, or forget your appointment, you will still be charged the usual fee, due to this time being set aside for you.
  • You will pay prior to each session.
  • You understand that to achieve positive outcomes will also require considerable effort by you, and perhaps others close to you, over time.

I offer a male friendly counselling service dedicated to enhancing the well-being of men and their partners and families. I offer both men and women professional counselling on such issues as anger management and here, conflict resolution, sexual problem and parenting skills.

I use a collaborative, non-judgemental, and respectful approach. I have a perspective that acknowledges gender role differences. I want to help you to develop emotional regulation skills that will help you to deal with challenging events that you may experience and to use those skills to improve all your relationships, especially your relationships with loved ones.

To Benefit from Counselling

Start each session with a positive expectation that counselling will be helpful.

Speak openly about your ideas of what will help.

Draw also on your own strengths, ideas of what will help, and others who are supportive.

Realise that change often requires practice and perseverance.
