John is a highly skilled and experienced professional counsellor with over 25 years’ experience in the field. He supports adolescents, adults, and couples in achieving their desired outcomes. John is registered with the Australian Counselling Association and supports clients with a vast array of concerns.
John sees developing a strong working alliance with his clients as the key to successful counselling. He helps clients work through life’s challenges so that they can grow and develop and live the way they truly want. John believes that every client can achieve the outcomes they desire and that his role is to sit with them, understand where they are, and help them decide where they would like to be. Once his clients are clear on this, John helps them to use the strengths and resources they already possess to develop new skills that they may need in order to achieve what they need.
Drawing on his extensive professional and life experience, as well as his counselling qualifications and training, John uses a pluralistic approach drawing from modalities including Person-Centred Counselling, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Solutions Focused Therapy to ensure that the counselling process suits the style of each client and the goals they have for counselling.
