Mr Sam LuxemburgMAPS

Medicare Psychologist Provider
NB - I am away overseas currently. I will be returning mid 2017.

I have been a psychologist and counsellor for over 30 years, after a prior career in IT.

I like and use the philosophy of Carl Rogers who "invented" counselling 70 years ago. It's about empathy and building a trusting relationship between counsellor and client.

While I use methods like Gestalt, Psychodrama, CBT and ACT, for me it is about the right vibe between myself and my client. My advice to anyone (including my own clients) is to shop around until you find the psychologist/counsellor that feels right for you.

While this is certainly my own view, there is also evidence from research that it is the relationship that makes the single biggest contribution to the effectiveness of the counselling.
