Master of Counselling, Diploma of Counselling (Christian), Bachelor of Applied Science

I use a blended approach to counselling, informed by theories of attachment, family systems, trauma, and neuroscience - adapting "bottom-up" and "top-down" methods as appropriate, depending on your needs, your strengths, temperament, and readiness for change. We'll aim for growth, while honoring the therapeutic process, allowing it to take a natural course.


My background is in scientific research and am excited by the rapidly developing knowledge of the human mind, brought to us by advancements in research methods. I continually strive to integrate this deepening knowledge, and evolving counselling methods, with my Christian faith.


As a father to three sons I am especially tuned in to the challenges that boys and men can face in our current cultural climate. I hope to be a support to males who are exploring issues around identity, meaning, belonging and relationships.
