Helping You Change Your Life

We provide individual therapy with children, young people, and adults. We also offer family therapy and work with parents (new or experienced) who feel they need support to move forward in their parenthood journey. We have extensive experienced in supporting parents/families of those struggling with mental health or who are stuck in conflict. Our aim is to create a space where clients are able to express themselves, work through their challenges, and grow as individuals.

About Calum

Having always been interested in helping people, Calum is passionate about mental health, personal growth, and development. Calum holds a wealth of experience, from over a decade of experience across private and public mental health settings.

He is experienced in working with a wide range of presentations including: Trauma, Anxiety, Depression, Relationship difficulties, Grief and Loss and trained in a variety of modes of working including Schema Therapy, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, and Family Systems Theory. Calum believes that no individual is the same and each requires a tailored approach, so generally, a blend of approaches and therapies are utilised for each individual.

Calum does not believe in looking at people as ‘problems to be solved’, but as humans who are stuck in patterns that are not serving them. His approach in therapy is to help people to identify these patterns and to consider how we could begin to do something differently. 

 Calum is an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker and can provide Medicare rebates to clients who have a Mental Health Care Plan through their GP.

How we can help

Individual Counselling
Are you feeling stuck, hopeless, or anxious. Are you finding relationships difficult, not knowing what direction to take in life, or struggling to manage your emotions? We can all get stuck in patterns of behaviour, thought, and emotion that hold us back. The ‘good life’ is a process, not a destination, individual therapy can guide you through that process.
Family Therapy
What’s more important, the flower, or the soil that it grows in. If you are finding your family relationships tense or just not getting on as well as you would like, if you are consistently ending up in arguments, or feeling you don’t know how to help or connect with a family member, family therapy might be for you. If you are a new parent and would like some support with life’s biggest adventure, we are here to help.
Nature Based Therapy
We recognise that the 'Therapy Room' does not suit everyone & that there are real psychological benefits to connecting with nature. In conjunction with traditional therapy, we offer nature-based therapy sessions, which include outdoor sessions at chosen locations.
Mind & Body Connection

Holistic Wellbeing

Here at Stoa, we recognise that Mind and Body are connected, and we aim to support you as a whole. We offer 'reset' packages for those in need, to address your physical and mental health side by side. We work closely with experienced and trusted colleagues to that ensure we are meeting your health needs as a whole.
Professional Supervision & Training

Professional Supervision

Calum has extensive experience of offering professional, clinical supervision and workshops to a range of professionals. Please contact us for a discussion to see whether he could be of assistance.
Couples Counselling

Couples Counselling

Often, the people that we love can create the biggest emotions within us. If you keep having the same conflicts, or you just can't seem to get along with your loved one, and you're feeling stuck and don't know where to turn, we are here to support you to get clear on a way forward.

Most people, don't lead their lives, they accept their lives

Calum truly believes in people’s capacity to take control of their lives for the better. Sometimes, it can be hard to see the way, we feel stuck, powerless to do anything. Slowing things down in therapy can help us to get clearer about the pathway forward, help us to refocus on the changes we can make, and take the steps we need to get there.
