Acceptance and Commitment Therapy therapists in Sydney, New South Wales NSW, Australia AU
Counsellor/Therapist, Psychotherapist, PACFA; Psychosexual Therapist
As a registered psychosexual therapist, I specialise in helping individuals with trauma and PTSD, self-esteem issues, relationship issues, and sexual difficulties, including intimacy and trust. I am also passionate about providing support for navigating gendered, sexual, racial, and neuro diversity, and cultural identities, who may experience discrimination or internalised stigma. Centering unconditional positive regard, I work closely with the client to deeply explore how their past experiences, current situations, family background, and social elements of their lives have impacted their wellbeing. I then work together with the client to explore how they navigate life within their social and environmental surroundings, as well as how to establish an environment and support system that is conducive to growth and healthy self-esteem. As a therapist, I deeply value sex positivity, social justice and removing the stigma and social constraints surrounding mental health work. I also aim to move away from binary and the pathologisation of queerness and neurodiversity, and provide dedicated support for people who feel they fall outside of the margins of the dominant societal group. Peer support towards queerness and neurodiversity is an important therapeutic element that I provide - living actively in the queer community and with neurodiversity myself, I am able to genuinely connect with others who may identify with similar experiences. I work from a trauma-informed, ecological-environmental and systemic framework to support survivors to thrive and enjoy healthy relationships and am certified in EMDR therapy. I am respectful and accepting of all forms of self-expression and diverse identities. In this way, my goal is to nurture self-compassion and to empower clients to make a sustainable positive impact on their wellbeing.

Psychologist, Generally-Registered Psychologist
As a registered psychologist specializing in ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) for children, adolescents, and young adults, I am committed to providing highly specialized, engaging, and effective therapy. My practice is uniquely tailored to the needs of young individuals with ADHD and/or ASD, focusing on creating a supportive and dynamic environment that fosters strengths and individuality. I am deeply understanding of the varied challenges faced by neurodiverse young people. I recognize that neurodiversity can significantly affect daily life, including academic performance, social interactions, self-esteem, and overall well-being. This is particularly true for those who may have experienced late diagnoses or misdiagnoses, often leading to additional challenges.

I'm Grant, and I specialize in coaching married couples who find themselves navigating the treacherous waters of troubled marriages. I understand the turmoil and frustration that comes with feeling like your relationship is falling apart. Are you eager to work on your marriage, but your partner seems emotionally distant, leaving you unsure of where to even begin? Perhaps you've heard those heart-wrenching words from your partner: "I'm not in love with you anymore," leaving you with a sense of hopelessness. The thought of divorce may haunt your thoughts, weighed down by the emotional toll it would take, the financial costs, and the impact it would have on your children. Sleepless nights may be your constant companion, as anger, anxiety, fear, and feelings of betrayal consume your thoughts, leaving you wondering if there's a glimmer of hope for revitalizing your marriage. Instead of the closeness and intimacy you once enjoyed, you might feel like mere roommates, sharing a bed but worlds apart. Intimacy and passion may have become distant memories, leaving you yearning for the connection you once had.

With over 40 years of experience and training as a professional licensed counsellor and in various couples therapy modalities, I have helped thousands of individuals and couples navigate the complexities of troubled relationships. I am the founder of the Million Dollar Marriage Program and The Marriage Whisperer, a 7-day intensive couples program designed to reignite the spark in your marriage. I firmly believe that healing relationships can have a ripple effect, not only on couples but also on their children and entire families, ultimately making the world a better place. My own journey towards happiness and fulfillment wasn't always smooth, but today, I cherish a wonderful life filled with loving children and grandchildren. Now, my mission is to extend a helping hand to other families and marriages in need of transformation. Together with my partner, Christine, I am committed to being the best husband, father, grandfather, therapist, and coach I can be. Our shared passion is to contribute to the betterment of relationships worldwide. From the depths of my heart, I want to emphasize that it's never too late to have an amazing relationship.
