...a philosophical approach to counselling
March 2020: in light of the current situation I am seeing people from home by video or phone. To meet the extra demand I have temporarily added Mondays to my usual schedule of Thursdays and Fridays.
This is counselling for people who want to:
- overcome fear and find courage
- overcome despair and cultivate hope
- develop emotional strength and resilience
- come to terms with the challenges and vulnerabilities of life
- develop a greater sense of meaning and purpose
- make their life better in practical ways
I'm a qualified counsellor, who used to teach philosophy at The University of Melbourne. My passion is for helping people become strong during the hard times of life, and flourish during the good times. Philosophy gives us thousands of years of wisdom for doing this. And modern counselling and psychology provide powerful tools for making that happen. I blend these together.
I see people online by phone or video, or from my office in Carlton, Melbourne. If this interests you then get in touch at email@example.com or 0430622909 and mention that you are enquiring about Existential Therapy. Sessions are $150 for 50 minutes.
Please note that counselling is different to psychiatry and clinical psychology. Those disciplines provide assessment and treatment for mental health disorders, whereas counselling is for personal growth - for anybody who wants to overcome their challenges and make life better through reflection and action. Think of this as personal training but for your emotions and life.
