This is counselling for men who want to create a good life.
Whether it's personal growth, or outward improvement (life, relationships, work),
I help you overcome challenges, and above all achieve goals and make your life better.
I don't focus on what's wrong with you.
Rather we spend our time discerning what's right with you, and applying that.
We go deeper in clarifying your strengths, your values, your desires.
And I help you hone your insight, your mindset, and action.
In essence I help you direct everything inside you toward achieving what you want in life.
As a counsellor I spent years working at the tragic and traumatic edges of life. I found that people succeed not by bringing things back to neutral, but by clarifying what really matters, what is good and strong in them, and then aiming for better, for what they really want. In short I found that we best overcome our problems, by making the good in our lives bigger than the problems. That became my focus as a counsellor. I've since stopped working with intense tragedy and trauma, and now help people in everyday life to do the same: going from bad, or okay, or even good, to great, to a life of real direction, purpose, and happiness. This is my passion.
Alongside my general work, I specialise in men, developing an approach and programs suited to a more masculine psychology - not trying to change us but rather using all that is best in us. Some guys come because they struggle with despondency, demotivation, fear, or so on, and are committed to changing things. Others want improvement in some area of life like dating, confidence, direction or purpose, rebuilding after loss, or creating a positive relationship. Some simply recognise the great value of having somebody with my skills help them keep their life both on track and ever-improving.
I don't do the work for you; this is for men who take responsibility for their own outcomes. What I offer are powerful conversations, and a professional relationship where I am committed to the best in you, to help you see things in a much better way, to help you take action, and to help you achieve what you want in life.

I am a fully qualified counsellor, registered at the highest level with the Australian Counselling Association. I have studied deeply across the fields of counselling and psychotherapy (and philosophy, and personal coaching) and offer this service as a personal growth service only. This means that my service is different to what is provided by a psychiatrist or clinical psychologist or allied health professional. For example I do not provide any assessment, diagnosis, treatment, or management of psychological disorders or associated risks. I regularly see clients with a mental health diagnosis, but my service to them is the same as with everybody else: personal growth. If you think you need assessment for a mental illness then please note that I will not provide that, and you should instead see a GP for that.
