Practices in Cremorne
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.

Practices in Fitzroy North
Esther Sammut Clinical Psychologist
468 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy North VIC 3068 Australia
Participating in therapy is a unique journey for each individual. It opens up mental and emotional traps developed through our past experiences and creates new pathways into a present and future that is in line with one’s goals and a meaningful, fulfilling and happy life. I believe a life of meaning, fulfilment and happiness is possible for every person, from those with slightly tiresome moods or behaviours to those with severely wounded pasts. It can be achieved through a guided therapeutic process which combines scientific research with careful assessment into each person’s mental barriers, unhelpful traits and recurrent emotional patterns. This is followed by insights and strategies which heal anxiety, manage unpleasant emotions & overcome personal or interpersonal behavioural cycles. My practice, with over 12 years of experience, offers a caring, intuitive, nuanced approach uniquely tailored to your needs, utilising the latest evidence based, neuro-scientifically informed treatment strategies.
