Psychologist Canberra | Counselling Canberra Psychotherapist
Maybe it’s time to go a little deeper and try Psychotherapy Counselling in Canberra? I would like to personally welcome the local residents to my psychotherapy and counselling Canberra clinic! If you’re looking for an alternative to traditional Canberra Psychologist, perhaps it’s time to look into the world of somatic psychotherapy.
Counselling in Canberra
Congratulations on the taking your first step in bettering yourself, I look forward to helping you along your journey. Whether you need counselling services for anxiety, depression, stress, or if you are looking for someone to help you understand where you are in life, I want to help you achieve your goals. In our ever-changing, fast paced world, it can be difficult to prioritise your mental and physical health, but it’s not impossible. Together we can work in recreating a different way of being and relating to both our internal and external world. If you’ve tried seeing a psychologist in Canberra or for that matter anywhere, or perhaps you wanted to try something a little deeper, like psychotherapy which while it tends be a little more confronting can offer deeper and longer lasting changes.
Counselling in Canberra – Treatments I use
As a registered psychotherapist in Canberra, I use a wide range of therapeutic techniques to assist people in achieving their personal health and wellness goals.
My psychotherapy training, as well as life coaching experience and mystical spiritual journey’s to Israel for 12 years has equipped me with the knowledge I need to help you along your journey.
I use several modalities such as somatic psychotherapy, CBT, Process Experiential Emotional Focusing Therapy (PEEFT), psychodynamic and existential therapies.
This differs somewhat from what traditional Psychologist in Canberra may offer.
Through a combination of somatic psychotherapy and the more cognitive approaches, it allows for a synergy between the mind, and emotional landscape. Having both these different terrains working together in harmony can drastically help work through different challenges we encounter. And I am here to help you do that. Let’s go into some detail regarding a few of the counselling in Canberra services that I offer.
Somatic Therapy Counselling in Canberra
Somatic psychotherapy is my main modality. Unlike practices used predominantly (CBT) by psychologists in Canberra or in general, this type of approach uses the latest in neurobiology to worth through anxiety, depression and stress as well as trauma. Polyvagal theory has completely changed therapists understanding of how trauma, anxiety and stress are stored in the body. This mechanism is perhaps the biggest indicator of challenges that occur in our lives. Through the introperception (awareness) of the interaction between the body and emotions, a dramatic shift in how we relate the world and our challenges can completely transform. Somatic Psychotherapy can be quite confronting, but the changes and the sense of being with, is transformational. My counselling in Canberra services can help make peace with past pain and trauma’s which affect us today.
CBT -Psychotherapy in Canberra
CBT, cognitive behavioural therapy, is one of the most popular forms of behaviour therapy today. It is used by psychologists in Canberra as well as psychotherapists in Canberra, and the greater global community. This type of therapy can be used alone or in combination with any of the other therapy practices that I use. Through this talk therapy, together we can work on help on reframing, exposure therapy, working with catastrophising, and many other tools
PEEFT Psychotherapy Canberra Approach
PEEFT, also known as Process Experiential Emotion Focused Therapy, is a therapy modality that can really get the heart of the matter really quickly. It incorporates some somatic therapy. . It was created under the premise that our emotions are the gateway to our lives. Lacking emotional awareness can cause harm, as can avoiding emotions all together. I use PEEFT to determine where you may be suppressing feelings and emotions and help you address and work them.
I believe that receiving highly effective counselling goes hand in hand with seeing a psychotherapist in Canberra. You simply need to work with someone who understands the connection between the mind and the body!

What You Should Expect on Day 1
I invite those of you looking to receive counselling in Canberra to come and see me.
Your first visit is one of the most important visits during your time with me.
We will discuss what brings you to therapy now, what you have tried before, and what you’re hoping to achieve.
As your Canberra psychotherapist, I will then create a treatment plan that I feel is best for your needs.
We will discus the program, go over any questions or concerns you have, and begin the journey of getting you on the path you see yourself being the most successful version of yourself on!
Counselling in Canberra – My Philosophy
I believe that everybody is capable of healing themselves from the inside out. However, I also believe that it takes time, dedication, patience, and self-love in order to do so.
As a psychotherapist and counselor in Canberra, I can help you do that even if you do not yet have that self-love or self-confidence that you need and desire.
Sometimes, we just need someone to help guide us in the right direction along our journey, and that is what I am here for.
