Guy

I am an Israeli-born registered psychologist. I moved to Australia with my family in 1997. Since 1990 I have gained extensive experience in counseling individuals, couples, and families with focus on relationship issues.

I can provide useful perspectives to help you see yourself and the situation through different eyes. New ways of perceiving and understanding will leave you inspired and empowered.

I am grounded, focused, and I am not shying away from practical tools or advice. I often apply ‘compassionate coaching’, that is, focus on what really matters and drive my clients with clarity and compassion towards their gaols. We will choose the ‘project’ together and I will help you navigate with warmth, care and down to earth approach.

How I work

With over 30 years’ counseling experience, I foster warm, genuine and compassionate relationships with my clients. My many years of clinical experience have seen me develop a style of helping couples that is best described as ‘compassionate coaching‘: I facilitate a constructive conversation with the purpose of you gaining a deeper understanding of, and fostering compassion towards, each other.​ I do so with care, warmth, and gentleness to make you both feel accepted and understood.

I maintain the focus on making sure that we work towards your goals together. I regard it as my responsibility to make sure we are staying on track to reach your goals. When old patterns of communications invade our space I deal with them effectively. 

The process of counseling is much like gardening. I help you cultivate a culture of relating to each other in ways that keep your relationship strong, satisfying, and resilient. In order to achieve this, we create a safe environment in which you feel more comfortable expressing  your softer sides and your vulnerabilities. Instead of defensiveness and attacks, you learn to express your needs, feelings, and requests, in a more open and authentic way. 
The upward spiral will consist of more care, understanding, and empathy. As your connection deepens, you are in a situation where you feel more secure and where your relationship flourishes.
From the field of Positive Psychology I have learned how to capitalise on strengths. Going beyond what doesn’t work well, we will explore possibilities and cultivate personal and relationship growth. You will learn how the ‘Masters’ – those who stays many years together – get their relationship to flourish.

I often share useful tips, strategies, knowledge and perspectives to help you develop you effective relationship skills.​ You will know they are effective because they will boost your ability to influence on your partner. You will be more likely to get a response to your needs. 

Theoretical background

My evidence-based tools draw upon Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT), John Gottman’s work, Gestalt, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
