Hello, how are you going today?

I'm Tom

I’m probably a bit older than I act and, like everyone else, over the years my life has had its ups and downs. The good news is that I'm here to help you navigate your way through yours!

At "Headland" I combine psychotherapy, creative therapy and hypnotherapy techniques to help you heal, overcome fear, build self belief and create positive change in your life at home, at work, at play, at school... and anywhere else in between.

These techniques have been used for thousands of years and today they are increasingly used to create behavioural change and promote mental wellbeing in business, coaching, counselling, education, health & fitness, personal growth, professional development, relationships, sport and more.

There are a number of location options:

  • Face-to-face in my office in Manly
  • 'Walk and talk' in the beautiful outdoors
  • Online via Zoom
  • If required and geographically possible I can come to you.

If you'd like to learn more about how we can work together, please get in touch:

Let's Chat

What to expect when we work together

We start with a quick 15 minute fee-free and obligation-free chat over the phone or video call.


If we both feel like we can work together — and it's important that you read and understand the Principles of Practice outlined below — we typically work in a block of three 90 minute sessions with some 'homework' over a period of two or three weeks during which we focus on three key activities:

  1. Realisation:
    Getting clarity and understanding what's happening, how it's triggered and the impact on your life.
  2. Disruption:
    Targeting, disrupting and bypassing your conditioned thinking and behaviour.
  3. Activation:
    Embedding the courage, resources and power for you to make choices that create long-lasting change.

Principles of Practice

SIMPLE

Straight forward pricing

The initial 15 minute phone or video consultation is free. Following this, each session lasts approximately 90 minutes and is charged at AUD$200.
Every third session is half price (AUD$100), so a block of three 90 minute sessions costs AUD$500.

If you have private health cover it may cover 'strategic psychotherapy' and 'clinical hypnotherapy'.

RAPID

We work fast and create results that will last.

We can usually get you to where you want to be in 3 sessions over 2 - 3 weeks. Most people say they experience a noticeable positive change within the first session. Sometimes we can resolve very specific issues in one session. Sometimes we uncover other stuff, so we need more time to work through those too.

COLLABORATIVE

We work together.

I do not magically 'fix' you or give you all the 'answers'. That's going to all come from you! During this highly collaborative process you need to be completely honest and you need to be completely committed to wanting to create change — which includes completing tasks between sessions. You will need to do some homework to create lasting change in your life!.

If you find yourself resisting the need to change... well that's the first thing we can work on so that you are wholly bought into the process!

FUTURE FOCUSED

You come to change your future, not your past.

This is not the kind of therapy where you have to keep coming back week-after-week to try to make sense of things that have already happened in your life or to find some 'deeper meaning' in your past. We work on changing your future  how you maintain problems, make decisions and utilise your skills, resources and experiences.

“You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.” C.S. Lewis

3 sessions, 3 weeks

We work collaboratively and we work fast, typically creating lasting change within three sessions, often we see a significant shift in the first session.


CONFIDENTIAL

Anything can be said, everything is heard, nothing is judged.

It goes without saying that everything discussed is strictly confidential (unless you pose any kind of danger to yourself or others, in which case the law requires appropriate authorities or agencies to be informed).


FLEXIBLE
Sessions are tailored to you and your needs
We can usually get you to where you want to be in 3 sessions delivered over a period of 3 weeks. Most people say they experience a noticeable positive change within the first session. Sometimes we can resolve very specific issues in one session. Sometimes we uncover other stuff, so we need more time to work through those too.

Your first session will require 90 - 120 minutes and subsequent sessions last 60 - 90 minutes. You will need to carry out some tasks between sessions. As long as you do your homework, you will create lasting change in your life!

Session times are by appointment only. We start with a Fee-Free, Obligation-Free Chat for about 15 minutes (in-person in Manly, over the phone or on Zoom). All other sessions are face-to-face in Manly or via Zoom.If required and geographically possible we can come to you. We also do 'walk and talk' sessions in the beautiful outdoors .


CURRENT
We will work on what you need right now.
Everyone is different, has different needs and thinks differently from one day to the next. This is not a templated formula, but a dynamic and adaptable approach that works for how you’re feeling right now, with plenty of wriggle room for anything unexpected!

FUN
Laughter is one of the best forms of therapy.
While we may be dealing with some serious issues, we'll try to make sure that things are not always too serious because even when working on heavy sh!t, there is always a place for humour in healing.

CONTROLLED
You are always in control.
Sometimes we will use hypnosis to disrupt your current thinking patterns and to fast track and embed new patterns of thinking. This is 'Clinical Hypnosis' or 'Hypnotherapy', not the 'stage hypnosis' you may have seen in movies or for entertainment — when people cluck like a chicken or dance like Elvis!

During hypnotherapy you are in a relaxed but highly focused meditative state and you are always conscious and in control and you can stop the process should you wish to. In this heightened state of awareness you can experience things differently and be more open to suggestions and alternative views as you can access and bypass your subconscious.

EMPOWERING
What you are not changing you are choosing.
If you're not changing something, then by default you are choosing it. This can be quite confronting for some people... but that quickly becomes liberating and empowering! Together we will quickly establish the impact of continuing to choose a particular behaviour or way of living and the benefits of doing something about it by choosing to change.
