1. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Chris is able to provide counselling and psychotherapy to adults experiencing depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, adjusting to change, communication problems, addictions, sexuality and gender identity issues.
Counselling generally refers to brief treatments (10 sessions) focusing on short term issues and behaviour changes typically due to a specific crisis. Psychotherapy is longer term and focuses on developing stronger self-awareness through modifying behaviours, thoughts and emotions by gaining insight into developmental issues and life experiences.
Counselling is offered through face to face, telephone and Skype.
Chris works largely within a person-centred, client-led approach in the following techniques and modalities:
- Solution Focused Brief Therapy
- Motivational Interviewing
- Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)
2. Psychological Interventions

Chris is a registered behaviour support practitioner who is able to work with NDIS clients.
