Queer Affirmative Counselling Practitioner.
Trauma-Informed Mental Health Practitioner.
He’s an experienced counselling psychologist who practises in the areas of general mental health and wellbeing, interpersonal relationships, common mental health concerns, gender and sexuality-related concerns, queer (LGBTQIA++) affirmative mental health and related concerns, and trauma-informed practises with individuals and groups. He primarily serves clients who are in their late adolescence to late adulthood. He approaches his clients from a strength-based perspective that emphasises adaptation over symptoms and resilience over pathology. He believes that the best way to support someone’s mental health is by factoring in their context, which cannot ignore their experiences of marginalisation or oppression. His approach to therapy is integrative, however, he uses predominantly a postmodern narrative-oriented approach to therapy, which he combines with other modalities such as ACT to understand and work with clients. He believes that therapy is not about “Here’s what I can do to fix you,” rather it about “How can you and I work together to meet your recovery and healing goals?”
