Hi, I'm Cameron

I provide holistic and compassionate Gestalt Psychotherapy sessions in Melbourne, through which my clients gain deep self-awareness and self-acceptance.

What my clients say:

"In spite of initial hesitance to seek support from a therapist, Cameron demonstrated quickly and reassuringly that he had my best interests at heart. I found him to be a supportive therapeutic ally, helping navigate challenging territory together. I’m grateful for his sensitive, insightful and caring nature."

Chris, Richmond

What I believe:

It is my belief that there is nothing ‘wrong’ with you. Wellbeing is your birthright, but things happen in our lives that interrupt our connection to this. I work with clients to soften the patterns of resistance that are preventing wellbeing from flowing to them.

My approach:

Unlike in traditional psychology, I use various modalities, grounded in Gestalt theory, to work with clients & help them live more balanced and fulfilled lives, free from suffering. Including Somatic Experiencing & working with at-risk youth.

Gestalt Therapy is a wholistic approach to counselling that helps you develop awareness, change stuck patterns, make different choices, reduce shame and increase self compassion. It does this through presence focussed work and the strengthening of the ability to be in relationship to others.
I have been a practicing Gestalt counsellor and psychotherapist since 2014 and offer confidential therapy underpinned by a compassionate and non-judgmental attitude.

Somatic Experiencing focusses on working with the natural processes within the body to deal with the affects of trauma.
I am currently completing my Somatic Experience training with Somatic Experience Australia and finding that this training allows me to work with the client’s felt sense, in away that the story is not central to the work.

I have been a practicing Gestalt Therapist since 2014 and also as a School  Councillor for troubled youth in Melbourne’s inner North.

Qualifications &  Accreditations:

  • Advanced Certificate in Relational Gestalt Therapy (Gestalt Therapy Australia, 2014)

Unfortunately sessions are not currently rebatable.

Are we the right fit?

Finding the right therapist to suit you and your needs can be tricky. 
While I specialise in anxiety, couples, family therapy, anger issues & trauma, I encourage you to arrange a session with me and see how you feel about our 'fit'.

Please feel free to contact me - I am more than happy to answer any questions you may have about the services I provide

What my clients say:

"I can hear Cameron in my mind in some situations, encouraging me to take care of myself, to offer myself some care. This is a great support to me."
