Self-growth based on pivotal, threshold, transformative states of self-consciousness
My goal is to help people live more authentic lives congruent with their inner values and personal drives… We live in a time when productivity is over-valued and the endeavours of the human spirit undernourished. I have been working with practical spiritually-grounded principles to help people live more authentically in line with their values… emotional drives… and life meaning in all facets of experience. My approach is greatly informed by the humanistic thinkers who believed self-actualisation to be at the heart of all fulfilling human endeavours — William James, Abraham Maslow, Carl Rogers and many scholars from the transpersonal (i.e., beyond the physical) schools of thought.
Alex supervises PhD, DPsych, and MPsych projects with a focus on altered states of consciousness.

Coaching offers a more focused approach to traditional psychiatric or psychological intervention
The first 20-min consulting session is to see if coaching is right for you. There are a number of approaches in Australia available from life coaching, social work, counselling, and psychology which offer different variations of support. Coaching specifically offers a focused, clear-cut outline towards achieving your specific goals, alignment with personal values, and relationship satisfaction.
The first session is 100% free of charge and if you do not benefit there is a no-risk no-cost guarantee.
Coaching is not for everyone. I’m always happy to speak to potential clients and there is no-stress around committing to ongoing session if it’s not for you.
A coaching relationship is different to a counsellor-client relationship in which there is a treatment regime underlying. Coaching offers a more peer-to-peer connection where we work together towards your life goals, values, and relationship outcomes.
My approach is relational. It is based in the notion that by trusting each other, we can build more enriching (micro) connections with our friends, family, and colleagues, which can extend (macro) into the real-world of culture, career, and creative expression in the lived world.
My training is in Gestalt, cognitive-behavioural, and transpersonal counselling which looks at the whole-person in a broader eco-system.
Several referral and alternative consultation options are available to best assist your needs!
