With over twenty years experience John Coady utilises an interpersonal relationship to enable self-understanding, stress reduction and assist in making changes to his client’s life. He is an accredited member of the AASW and trained in a number of therapeutic approaches and modalities, and integrates these according to the client’s needs and situation. John has extensive experience working with adult clients from diverse backgrounds and has developed an understanding and the required skill to support clients dealing with stressful health changes and life adjustments.
John’s work in mental health spans areas of emotional trauma and abuse, including neglect and developmental trauma, suicidal ideation, loss and grief, depression and anxiety, men’s health issues and family of origin work. John works from a strengths based perspective, keeping in mind that when people struggle with problems, that this does not need to be part of their identity. As a clinician, John is aware and motivated by his duty of care for you, the client, in particular regarding mental health risk and stress management. He establishes a non-judgemental and empathic working relationship with thorough assessment including mental health focus.
John’s model of care includes assessment and supportive intervention work to create a plan which supports you. What you can expect from John is a safe, confidential and empathic space to bring your concerns for discussion. This may be a particular issue for focus or something that may have troubled you for some time. Either way, John will work at your pace, share a conversation with your interests at heart, build new skills, cope better, and feel more free around mental health issues and emotional pain.
