Tim Southwell is a highly regarded and accomplished counsellor who has worked in the field for almost a decade. Tim works with individuals, couples, and families across a range of presenting difficulties. Tim holds membership with the AASW and has Medicare, health fund, and Veterans rebates available.
Tim is empathic and pragmatic in his counselling approach. He draws predominantly from strengths- based and traditional therapeutic approaches (including Cognitive Behavioural Therapies, Rogerian, Psychodynamic and Solution Focused). The counselling environment is warm and professional, and Tim creates a space where a client’s goals and strengths are prioritized and incorporated into each session. Client goals and improvements in general well-being are important in counselling with Tim and he will assist with problem solving and aim to give his clients new and refreshing experiences.
Sometimes a client’s past experiences are crucial in goal-oriented work. Other times, brilliant work can be done without reflecting too much on the past. Tim offers the possibilities of both approaches. Whichever direction the client chooses to explore, Tim will guide, accommodate, and empathize with kindness and authenticity.
