I am a 40 yr old queer man who like many of us that are walking this earth have experienced many trials and tribulations. Along the way I have been blessed to have had people enter my life acting as sign post along the way. Mirror reflections of parts I desired to grow into and also reflections of qualities that did not nourish me. In my mid 20's I commenced my higher education with a pathway of social ecology, which then led me to a private college in Sydney studying Holistic Counselling and Transformational Life Coaching.
I journeyed for three years as a counsellor within a therapeutic community model post studies and have since persued multiple interest in different bodywork techniques and modalities while also dabbling in various creative art forms and expressions and also yoga teacher training. I have also continued to maintain my annual Counselling accreditation with the Australian Counselling Association, ensuring that I am bringing the best of the therapuetic alliance to you.
I have a deeply compassionate and empathetic reverence for the beauty that prevails from the depths of the dark knight of the soul. I am very familiar with the terrain of this journey and the heroes journey that we all take when we turn and face ourself, especially if there is grief, pain suffering and for many people, trauma.
In 2019 I commence training in Gestalt Therapy With Gestalt Therapy Brisbane, participating in a graduate certificate program prior to commencing a Master in Gestalt Therapy in 2020.
My interest and ongoing studies are all motivated by a hunger to unlearn, relearn and grow myself while also developing my professional capacity to serve and support people to learn and grow more into their authentic self.
I specialise and am experienced counselling and coaching people experiencing depression, anxiety, addictions, apathy, shame based trauma and internalised homophobia. I bring to private practise , sessions and workshops a repertoire of a life well lived and practised and a tool belt full of radical compassion, empathy and practical resources to empower you as you travel through your life.
Most of all, I serve mostly for you to become reunited with the benevolent sovereign human being that you are.
Please feel free to call or email to arrange a 15-30min conversation to discern if I maybe the therapist for you.
I look forward to working with you.
