I offer a truly holistic, transpersonal & culturally aware approach that honours the many dimensions of human experience. My approach may be a good fit if you are searching for a non-pathologising and empowering space: to reclaim vitality and personal power lost due to trauma, to become more embodied in your truth, and to get to the heart of what's important in your life. I support individuals who are on a path of healing and transformation to cultivate depth, awareness and authenticity.

I work from a non-pathological lens, which means that I will not label and diagnose your experiences, nor will I try to fix you. At essence, the container I offer will support you to slow down and tune in; and from that place, I will support you to cultivate awareness through your own direct experience.

    10 Questions with Alexandre Jodun

    • What led you to choose psychotherapy or counselling as a profession?

    • For over fourteen years I've been passionate about the evolution of consciousness, psychology, and living a spiritually-rooted life. After experiencing a spiritual emergence and existential crisis in my own life in my mid-twenties, I was called to explore experiential psychotherapies and indigenous wisdom traditions in order to make sense of my experiences during this challenging transition in my life. Through my own personal process of healing and transformation, exploring many modalities, I eventually received a calling to study and practice psychotherapy and counselling, and to be a bridge between psychology and earth-based spirituality.
    • Which philosophical approaches have influenced your professional/personal development?

    • - Holotropic Breathwork & Grof Transpersonal Psychology (Stan & Christina Grof)
      - Process-oriented Psychology (Arnold & Amy Mindell)
      - Mindfulness meditation
      - Ancestral and earth-based indigenous wisdom traditions (Peruvian Ashaninka-Mestizo curanderismo, African ancestral wisdom)
      - Contemporary shamanic practices (Alberto Villoldo)
      - Depth psychology & Soul-centred traditions (e.g Carl Jung, James Hillman, Francis Weller)
      - Mythology, Folklore & Fairytales (Michael Meade, Martin Shaw)
      - The oral teachings of Martin Prechtel
    • Which particular aspects of health or the human journey are you interested in?

    • I'm interested in the psychospiritual phase of the human journey that Bill Plotkin refers to as "Soul initiation." Or in other words, the process of becoming a spiritually and ecologically integrated, authentic adult, who is in touch with their deepen reason for being on earth and what unique service they came to offer the world. I'm passionate about holding space for individuals who are longing to cultivate the skills and resources needed to navigate this journey, which includes healing trauma and ancestral wounds, inner child work, dreamwork, mindfulness, sub-personality work, re-connection with nature and spirituality.

      I'm also interested in working with expanded states of consciousness for the purposes of healing and transformation, which includes breathwork, movement, earth-based ritual and ceremony, and psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy (not yet legal in Australia).

      I'm also passionate about the process of integrating spiritually transformative experiences into everyday life, and supporting individuals who may feel that they have been traumatised by having been pathologised or labelled.
    • What method/s do you use?

    • Process-oriented methods (trauma healing, somatic inquiry, art, movement, relationship and conflict work)
      Transpersonal approaches (mindfulness, breathing, imaginal and visionary journey work)
      Nature-based methods (connecting with the earth, elements, ritual and ceremony, ancestral reconnection)
      Myth, Story & Poetry
    • When do you think the client will start to feel that progress is being made?

    • I think that this is unique for each individual, and impossible for me to give a blanket answer that is true for everyone that I've worked with. For some individuals, "progress" to them occurs when they can notice their emotions, notice how they experience them, articulate them, and feel them in their body. For other people, it's simply telling their story to someone who will finally listen deeply without trying to fix them. For others, it might be something else. It's unique to the individual.
    • How has therapy made you a better person?

    • In many ways. therapy has made me feel more genuinely compassionate about the suffering of humanity, and has taught (and continues to teach me) that every person contains the potential for healing and transformation into who they came into this world to be. Through my experience of offering therapy services, I've also cultivated better communication skills (listening and expressing myself authentically). I have also cultivated more awareness of my own personal growth edges, and where I need to do more work on myself in order to hold space for others with care and integrity without imposing agendas. Therapy has also helped me to become more gentle and understanding in my personal life, and cultivate deeper trust that it is no accident that we each exist on this earth today.
    • What do you like most about being a therapist?

    • Being of service to others in a meaningful way, and doing what I feel like I came to this earth to do - which is to support and guide others to remember their innate wholeness and the gifts that they came into this world to bring.
    • Do you ever have 'bad hair' days?

    • Yes! Because I am human and not a robot, there are 'bad hair' days. But even these so-called 'bad hair' days often become my greatest teaching moments, and awaken me to something important that wants to be acknowledged that I otherwise would've missed if 'my hair was perfect.'
    • What do you think is the most significant problem we face, in the world today?

    • In my opinion, the most significant problem we face in this hyper-materialistic and post-colonial world today is a crisis of perception and unresolved trauma -- a crisis which continues to have a damaging ripple affect on all of our systems (physical, psychological, spiritual, ecological - human and non-human), and which heavily influences the ways in which we all personally and collectively makes sense of our purpose and place in the world.

      I personally believe that, as James Hillman once said, "[the therapy] room should be a cell of revolution." I think that by taking responsibility for one's own path of healing, awareness and transformation, there's a revolutionary ripple effect that then potentially occurs in the world "out there."
