Michael Theodosiou

Counsellor

Diploma of Counselling

The use of a person-centred approach provides a safe and non-judgemental environment for the client’s growth and well-being. As a qualified Counsellor and Chaplain I have 5 years experience working with individuals, couples, families and teens. I work with clients to discover realistic and achievable goals to empower them to reach successful outcomes. Areas like addictive behaviours, self-worth, relationships, life planning and reconciliation are some areas I have had the honour of seeing the client reach their desired change. I have experience working with people in mining (residential/FIFO), teens, families, staff in schools, men in rehabilitation felicities along with their families/friends. My passion is to see people reach their full potential.
