MatthewB-head-300highI offer a warm, reflective and confidential space to talk openly and provide the opportunity for healing and personal growth.  I recognise that for some people coming to see a counsellor is a courageous step and that’s why I place great value on a creating a respectful and collaborative relationship between the therapist and client.      

As an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker, I take an ​holistic and evidenced-based ​approach to counselling; embracing cognitive and behavioural techniques, balanced with narrative and systemic frameworks.  I have over 14 years of counselling experience working with children, their families, young people and adults, across the fields of school education, alcohol and other drugs, mental health, employee assistance and child safety.  

I am particularly interested in helping children with school related issues, family relationships including the adjustment to parenthood, gentle parenting and men’s health. I also offer professional supervision to education staff and allied health clinicians.

Please see our services page for more information about what I can offer.
