Cassowary Coast Counselling
Mental Wellbeing, Online
When a person is in pain, the empathic, informed, and professional support of another, can not only heal, but also re-energise. My passion is to safely and respectfully support a lively awareness building process for those in distress, in order to assist growthful change in children, teens, and adults.
If you feel it could be helpful to talk, we can arrange to do so by phone, video or in-person at my private practice in Mission Beach, Far North Queensland.
In 2011 I left the financial services industry, a field that I had occupied since 1990. My career transition was difficult and so, I sought counselling for the first time in my life. After about a year of soul-searching and personal reflection, I secured a role working with complex to extreme-needs young people - for three years - at a residential facility west of Brisbane; this is where my career reskilling began, starting with a Cert IV in Youth Work and a Diploma of Counselling. During this time, I also received and including extensive training in therapeutic frameworks such as Therapeutic Crisis Intervention (TCI), trauma informed care and complex trauma neurobiology. I was also fortunate to spend time in Nauru - an Australian offshore processing centre - supporting unaccompanied minors as a residential worker for Save the Children. In 2016, my wife and I moved to Mission Beach in Far North Queensland, a long held dream, and soon after, I established Cassowary Coast Counselling.
My passion today is my private practice, Cassowary Coast Counselling, where I work with teens and adults. I hold a Master's Degree in Gestalt Therapy, which I completed in 2020, and a Diploma of Counselling. I am also a member of the Australian Counselling Association.
Alongside my practice, I hold a position with the Office of Public Guardian, an independent statutory agency (Department of Justice and Attorney-General), where I advocate for the rights of children placed into foster care in Queensland.
