Holistic Health Solutions
Suite 54, 47 Neridah St, Chatswood NSW 2067 Australia
I am a registered psychologist with over 20 years experience in the field. I have worked in private practice in Chatswood since 1999. In addition to my psychology training, I have completed a Diploma in Sexual Health Counselling and a comprehensive one-year training course in Ellyn Bader’s Developmental Model of Couples Therapy. I am an accredited sexuality therapist and I am skilled in dealing with sexual functioning issues (low libido, orgasm difficulties, physical pain during sex, performance anxiety, ejaculation problems), the psychological repercussions associated with sexual and physical traumatic events, and compulsive sexual behaviours. I use a holistic approach which combines behavioural, interpersonal and mind-body therapies. I can help you to locate the underlying emotional and physical responses to a particular problem, working at a deep level with both mind and body in order to effect long-lasting change. I utilise my training in Inner Space Techniques - a form of meditative body-oriented therapy that helps to access these core emotional undercurrents within the body. I am also able to help you process and regulate your emotions, understand negative patterns of behaviour, develop better communication strategies and increase body awareness. I am experienced in working with a range of client presentations, including depression, anxiety, grief, stress and anger. As a relationship counsellor, I am able to support couples through all sorts of relationship issues, including infidelity, intimacy, arguments and communication problems. I have experience working with complex trauma, especially in the area of sexuality. I am guided by the principles of trauma-informed counselling practice and work towards creating safety; self-paced learning; and consolidating your progress. I start by creating a safe therapeutic space so that you feel physically and emotionally safe. My clinic room is located in a quiet inner courtyard sheltered from street noises and passing traffic. I facilitate bodily wellbeing with body-oriented methods to help you begin to feel safe in a bodily sense. You have control over the therapeutic process and are in charge of the pace of your healing and progress. To help you feel more stable, I provide “here and now” grounding techniques to generate centred connection within. Working on the trauma, I will validate your responses to the particular traumatic events you have experienced, such as the flight, fight & freeze responses, or triggers and flashbacks. Together we will develop tools and techniques to orient back to the present moment. By generating awareness of patterns of avoidant behaviour you can begin to address these, consolidate your strengths, develop self-care protocols, and build trust in yourself again. The combination of my skill sets allow me to offer a broad range of therapeutic methods and holistic interventions. You will see for yourself what prevents you from having the sex life you want. Your concerns are addressed from a psychological and body-oriented level where lasting changes can take place.
4/350 Military Road, Cremorne NSW 2090 Australia
You may find your oh so busy lives and related demands lead you to be pre-occupied with any of worry, guilt, resentment, irritability, frustration, tiredness and exhaustion. You may also be resistant to seeking professional support perhaps viewing it as a sign of weakness or failure. Albert Einstein suggested that "The thinking that got us here isn't the thinking that will get us out of here" (paraphrased). Counselling, coaching and psychotherapy are no longer confined to the provinces of temporary personal challenges and chronic mental illness. Here is an excerpt from one of my clients who has worked extensively with me and was prompted to go public with her experience and write an article about it: “I finally understand that no one in this world has the power to make me feel anything. I create, promote and allow the feelings and behaviours that I want in my life and I give to myself the things that I want to experience...... Knowing that no one external can take that feeling away is liberating.” This is an example of the benefits people share with me about my work with them. Beyond releasing burdens I assist you to build tools that sustain more understanding, joy, spontaneity, enthusiasm, loving and inner peace; a supportive pathway to better life choices. Read more testimonials on the "About John " page. In our work together you can claim back your life in ways that support you and the ones you love; a sense of renewal emerges no matter how challenging your situation seems; relationships are healed as you see them through new lenses; family dynamics transform creating deeper more loving connections notwithstanding the upsets, conflicts and dramas that have gone before. Life just gets better no matter your starting point.
Suite 15, 287 Military Road, Cremorne NSW 2090 Australia
Hello and welcome. I’ve been a psychologist in private practice for over 25 years. Prior to this I was trained and worked in Early Childhood Education as a teacher, director, and later as an advisor. I’ve also taught in Adult Education, worked in Community Mental Health and University Counselling. I first discovered psychology at teacher training college. Then, after working initially with young children, travelling extensively overseas, meeting and working with people from all walks of life, I became interested in how we all navigate life’s challenges – what makes us ‘tick’ – and decided to make psychology my profession. During these years I’ve also been a field supervisor to students undertaking the Master of Counselling programme at Macquarie University and a board member of Miroma, an organisation that provides day programmes for adults with disabilities. I feel very honoured to accompany my clients on their journey through painful or traumatic events, witnessing the transformation. This is a fulfilling process for both of us.
