Counsellor Bio

My name is Benjamin and my hope is that I can assist you to find resolution in whatever has brought you here today.

It’s important when you are looking for a counsellor to know that they are suitably qualified, experienced and registered with a professional body.  My career as a counsellor started more than 10 years ago.  I’ve worked in a variety of settings – as a support worker, training coordinator and in private practice.  I’ve collaborated with a wide range of clients including professionals, young people, retirees, couples, people experiencing symptoms of mental illness and people experiencing suicidal ideation (thoughts and feelings).  Currently I work in counselling private practise in Carlton.  I also teach counselling skills, ethics and supervise students on placement at a University in Melbourne’s CBD.

My Qualifications Include:
Master of Counselling (UTAS) (link here)
Graduate Diploma of Counselling
Certificate IV Training and Education
Certificate in Professional Supervision
Diploma Transpersonal Counselling (Phoenix Institute of Victoria)
Diploma Transpersonal Art Therapy (Phoenix Institute of Victoria)
Bachelor of Arts – Philosophy (LaTrobe University)

All this enables me to be a member of the Australian Counselling Association, the peak body for professional counsellors in Australia.
