I, Peter (He/Him), am a member of the Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW) and have been an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker since 2014. In addition, I am registered as an allied health Medicare provider.
I provide a broad range of expertise that includes the impact of childhood trauma, such as sexual assault and domestic violence. In addition, I provide a space to explore identity and the meaning this holds for you, including gender and sexuality. I also have extensive experience working with grief and loss, and suicidal ideation. My intervention is to help people to find hope, purpose and meaning in their lives.
My work focuses on acceptance, inclusion with no judgement and holds trauma-informed care central to my work. To consider therapy requires courage and strength; this is a step to healing. I will listen to you with empathy and compassion, helping you understand yourself and become your best version.
I use several therapeutic modalities, including Narrative therapy, Acceptance commitment therapy, mindfulness strategies, psychoeducation, systems theory, and solution-focused, all based on each person’s needs.
Areas of Interest
I am interested in being present with people as they explore the vulnerabilities in their life. What is important, and what barriers get in the way of living the best version of themselves.
