Hugh is a highly regarded counsellor and clinical family therapist who works with individuals and couples as well as families. He is a member of the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia and the Australian Association of Family Therapy.
Hugh is down-to-earth, curious, and pragmatic. He ensures his clients feel safe, heard and understood. His approach helps clients to understand themselves and others more compassionately and to recognise where they have fallen into unhelpful patterns and find successful solutions to the problems those patterns create. Initial sessions with Hugh will build a picture of what brings a client to therapy and what they hope to gain. Clients may have a clear idea, or they may simply feel something isn’t right and want professional input to discover more. Hugh meets all clients with warmth, curiosity and a willingness to discover what makes them thrive. This sets the trajectory for how they will work with Hugh, what to prioritise, and the duration of the therapy.
Hugh’s approach supports clients to improve reliability and renew trust within current and future relationships and to address problems and disappointments from the past. His approach helps to create room for people to be able to fulfil their own position in life in an honest, fair and responsible manner. By working this way, clients feel supported to more easily own up to their behaviours, be open to doing things differently and to receive their fair share of love and care.
