Mark Walker Psychotherapy
Mobile 0414 154 885
As a registered psychotherapist with a creative clinical art therapy and pastoral background I work from a collaborative position of care, curiosity and empathy. I utilise a variety of approaches to match your specific goals and needs, facilitating understanding of your particular situation to overcome stuckness. One of the philosophies that resonates for me is, “The problem is the problem, the person is not the problem” (White & Epston, founders of Narrative therapy).
Mark has a specific interest and experience in working with veterans living with mental health issues and trauma, an excellent rapport with children, particular using creative art approaches, and 15 years clinical pastoral experience in bereavement, grief and loss and other significant life events.

Mark's approach is psychodynamic, creative and client-centred - EMDR is one of the specialist approaches he uses. The basic thinking being that we all experience problems and difficulties in our lives and, at times, need assistance in making meaning of our stuckness. Often our inner world becomes blocked by stress, anxiety and patterned behaviour. The creative unconscious is a wonderful source of freeing these blockages and guiding us toward alternative, more productive storylines. In my experience, people tend to have their own answers; we sometimes just need help to see them.
Mark has a unique background of experience ranging from 22 years service in Defence; 15 years in clinical pastoral work in the public hospital system, state and private schools in WA, and pastoral care and counselling in a range of non-government agencies, including high care facilities.
