Specialties (also areas where I'm not specialised)

Personal, Marriage and Parent/Family Counselling Specialties include:

Focused psychological strategies (a Medicare rebate is available);

Managing and understanding anxiety and ‘overwhelm’ to experience calmness more often;

Recovery from trauma so it is easier to function;

Maximising recovery from mental ill health symptoms (e.g. hallucinations and other distressing symptoms);

Managing strong emotion and reducing aggressive behaviour/reactions for  adults so family members are not scared and want to be close;

Getting on better in marriages and generating more love and intimacy;

Overcoming sexual problems to make being intimate more fun;

Taking responsibility for wounding behaviour and making effective attempts to repair a wounded relationship;

Handling parenting challenges better;

To get an idea of the specialised skill development Owen pursues some of his professional development record is here.

Owen does NOT specialise in some fields and and lacks training and experience in the areas of:

Pregnancy termination counselling

Fixed delusional thoughts

Serious or life threatening eating disorders


Gender identity or sexual preference issues. (a client’s preferred goals in this area will be respected and not determined by the therapist if counselling is still sought)

Intravenous street drug use

RIsky alcohol use if the potential client will not seek involvement in an outpatient alcohol and other drug programme

Gender transition

Psychometric testing for assessing specific learning difficulties

People younger that 18 (NB Privacy Laws now require files of children be held until the former client is 25 years old; whilst the clinician has many years experience counselling this age group I am too close to retirement to be able to handle subpoenas into my senior years)

This service does NOT provide emergency appointments.   

If you live in Western Australia, you are at a low point and you know you might put someone else or yourself at risk and you know you need emergency support please use one of these services:

Phone Mental Health Emergency Response Line (MHERL) - 1300 555 788 (staffed 24 hours by mental health trained health department staff.

Phone Lifeline – 13 11 14 – a national charity providing people experiencing a personal crisis with access to 24 hour crisis support and suicide prevention services.

Find your way to the nearest emergency department so staff can assess and treat you and advise whether a short emergency department stay or a short hospital stay might help you.
