About Mark

Mark understands that research shows the biggest predictor to positive therapy outcomes is a strong alliance with your therapist. For this reason, Mark’s personable approach focuses on ensuring you feel safe, comfortable, and connected to the therapeutic process. Mark is a Mental Health Social Worker with a Master’s Degree in Social Work and uses a holistic approach to mental health treatments.

Mark has spent the last 10 years specialising in various mental health roles working with youth and adults to deliver innovative mental health treatments including Surf Therapy which fuses traditional talk therapy with surfing and physical activity.

Mark has worked with hundreds of people seeking mental health support from prevention-based stress management to chronic and complex mental health presentations within the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). Mark can help people with a range of mental health challenges but has specific areas of expertise in:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Trauma
  • Stress and burnout
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Mood disorders and psychosis
  • Suicidality
  • Managing transitions and change
  • Emotional dysregulation
  • Youth mental health

Utilizing a trauma informed approach to mental health treatment Mark draws from principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to give you proven, practical skills to cope with life’s challenges.

A firm believer in outdoor therapy, Mark offers unique blue and green space appointments by the beach or in the bush for suitable clients to complement traditional office sessions. These spaces have been found to improve outcomes of therapy and support psychological flexibility. For more information about these sessions please check out Clarity Therapy.

People who have worked with Mark describe him as authentic, down to earth, and supportive. In 2018, Mark met Prince Harry and Meghan Markle when they visited Australia to learn more about innovative approaches to mental health. Outside of the office Mark can be found around the beach surfing or kitesurfing in the summer and playing ice hockey at a local ice rink in the winter.
