Yep. Sometimes life gets a bit much to handle on your own... you might be feeling stressed or depressed, isolated or upset, caught up in conflict - or just stuck in a rut and saying to yourself, "Something has to change!" If that sounds all too familiar... consider this an invitation: into a calm and supportive conversation about how you can look at things differently, find comfort, inner strength and solutions, connect with yourself and others - and live a happier and fuller life.

My approach to counselling is to start wherever you are.
Narrative Therapy practices can help us to make sense of the issue at hand.
Solution-Focussed Brief Therapy might be helpful in getting things under control.
Emotion-Focussed Therapy can help us to understand why we feel the way we do.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy offers us useful tools for developing skills and unravelling tangled thoughts.
ACT and mindfulness meditations help us to tune into our true selves so that we can find that inner compass that will help us on our way.
Since 2012 I have worked as a counsellor in a number of contexts: as an employee in a large not-for-profit organisation, offering support to people over the phone, in person and in groups; as a Men's counsellor and group worker in a domestic violence behaviour change program; as a volunteer who provides free counselling to disadvantaged populations; in government funded staff positions; and as a generalist counsellor in private practice. It has been my great honour to work alongside and learn from many admirable women as colleagues and co-facilitators of programs that support families to find safety and integrity.
My other career is in the media, so I try to balance those endeavours with the supportive collaboration of counselling.

Hi, I'm Steve. I've worked as a counsellor since 2012, supporting people just like you and I, as we struggle with: change, isolation, grief, anxiety, work-life balance, phobias, anger, financial stress, family breakdown, destructive behaviours, traumatic memories, "over-reactions" - or any of the curve-balls life can throw at you.
