John is a skilled professional counsellor with over 25 years experience in people development. 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 with particular interests in grief and loss, crisis support and men’s counselling.
John sees developing a strong therapeutic relationship with his clients as the key to successful counselling. He helps clients work through life’s challenges in a nurturing, non-judgemental, safe space so that they can live the life that they choose. John believes that every client can achieve the outcomes they desire and that his role is to sit with them, understand where they are today 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 have, and develop new skills that they may need, in order to achieve their life goals.
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.
