Tom Blackford is a senior counsellor who has been in practice for more than 30 years holding full membership with the AASW. Having helped people with a wide range of presenting issues, Tom is optimistic that everyone has the ability to grow and change.
Tom believes that everyone has the abilities they need to find their way forward to a better and more fulfilling life. Clients may not be sure how to achieve this, so Tom believes his role is to help clients understand what needs to happen for change to occur. Tom quickly gains an understanding of the factors that have held people back and uses a broad range of tools to help clients move forward. Some people need to learn skills, new information or perspective to make the difference. For others, a difficult experience happened to them that needs to be resolved. Whatever the need, Tom has the expertise to identify what will make the difference and essentially, how to make the difference.
Tom draws from a range of evidence-based therapies including, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, trauma theory and NLP. Tom uses these frameworks to support clients create change in their lives. Clients are routinely surprised that long standing difficulties change or disappear faster than they expected with Tom’s guidance.
Tom Blackford has appointments available in the following location: Payneham
