Finding calm and hope in times of uncertainty In my years of working as a wilderness guide, journeying into the unknown, my task was to listen to and support clients to find their own inner strength. In the therapy room my task is much the same, respectfully and gently assist clients through the difficult parts of life's journey. I celebrate each persons unique and developing self knowledge as they identify hidden resources bringing new clarity, meaning and expanded potential for life.

    10 Questions with John Dallimore

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

    • Mid life brought about big changes in my life. One day I had well paying job and a career in St Georges Terrace. The next day I was retrenched along with many others. Even though I had reached the top in my career I had always felt out of place. Together with my wife I started a wilderness backpacking business guiding people throughout remote landscapes. Over a six year period I discovered people unfolded and became emotionally and spiritually well as we walked and talked and listened to each other. We began running trips with Aboriginal people in the Pilbara and time after time I saw the same thing happen. I discovered we healed as we spent time together.
    • What do you think is the most significant problem we face, in the world today?

    • We have become so busy that we too often lose connection with ourselves and those around us.
