As a trauma informed body-oriented psychotherapist I don't treat symptoms or disorders - instead, I support people. People come to see when living life has become difficult for them (or perhaps has always been difficult). These difficulties might become noticeable as depression, anxiety, panic attacks, compulsive actions, aggression, issues with eating, undiagnosable body aches and pains, loss of energy, sexual difficulties, or relationship issues.

    Self Psychology, Somatic Psychotherapy

    Psychotherapy is a non medical practice which aims to address difficulties people have with living life.

    Depression, anxiety, panic attacks, compulsive actions, aggression, traumatic experiences, issues with eating, undiagnosable body aches and pains, loss of energy, grief and loss, abuse, sexual difficulties, or relationship issues are examples for such difficulties.

    Together we will explore the question "what happened to you?", instead of "what is wrong with you?".

    Quality Provision

    I am required to undergo regular clinical supervision, and participate in ongoing training as well as professional education.

    Also, in the particular field of psychotherapy that I am working in, it is a requirement for the therapist to be in his/her own personal therapy.


    Due to my background in the police service (Germany) and the IT industry (Australia) I am familiar with the difficulties and pressures of both first responders and commercial environments.

    In recent years I have been predominantly working with survivors of traumatic experiences, people who carry a diagnosis of PTSD.


    Flexible times and locations, please call


    My hourly fee is $165.

    I offer a sliding scale for those who can commit to regular sessions, and to those who have financial difficulty.

    Payment Options

    Cash or bank transfer.

    10 Questions with Ernst Meyer

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

    • After a crisis in my private life I was looking for different ways to live my life. I enrolled in a training program for psychotherapy, and over time I transitioned from being helped to being the helper.
    • Which philosophical approaches have influenced your professional/personal development?

    • I consider the work I do as "applied philosophy". It is guided by humanistic philosophies.

    • Which particular aspects of health or the human journey are you interested in?

    • I see psychotherapy primarily as a human science, and am interested in how non-medical approaches are promoting long lasting growth and change.

    • What method/s do you use?

    • We will try and make sense of your life together, and aim to restore power, pride and hope.

    • When do you think the client will start to feel that progress is being made?

    • When the feel heard and understood, helped, empowered and more hopeful.
    • What do you like most about being a therapist?

    • I cannot think about a more interesting and fulfilling profession.
    • Do you ever have 'bad hair' days?

    • Of course I do, but I hope it doesn't show.
    • What do you think is the most significant problem we face, in the world today?

    • Coronavirus. At the same time, this crisis also offers us an opportunity to reflect. What is it that we have lost? Are we really missing it? What is now taking it's place, and what is our relationship with this "new normal"?
    • Can you share the name of a book, film, song, event or work of art that inspires you?

    • In general: stories of survival, against the odds.
