Let me tell you a little bit about me.

My urge to become a Counsellor started in high school. I was going through a tough time and sought out a counsellor to support me. His approach was rather old-fashioned and didn’t resonate, so I knew there must be a better way.

During my career in retail operations management, I found myself being the go-to guy for positive culture creation and coaching individuals to perform at their best. Studying to become a Professional Counsellor & Coach was an obvious next step.

I’m passionate about supporting people who are experiencing stress, anxiety, depression, anger, relationship issues and transitional life challenges. I’ve worked in high schools and in private practice, helping people to become the best versions of themselves.

My ongoing education means I’m also a Master Coach & Practitioner of Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) and have trained with the nationally renowned Transformational Coach Mei Ouw.

It’s worth mentioning that if we meet and don’t ‘click’, then I’ll be happy to help you find a counsellor or coach that’s the right fit for you. 

Your comfort is my priority.


As a qualified and experienced Counsellor, I’m passionate about supporting you through life’s challenges. I’ve created a safe, accessible, down-to-earth, and solution-focused practice that offers everyone an opportunity to reach their full potential.

After all, everyone experiences challenges around relationships, career, business, health or just life! Together we’ll set achievable goals and create a unique plan to help you move through the crap and thrive.

My experience with Ben has been nothing short of life changing.

I came to Ben being a high performing athlete in the sport of Ten Pin Bowling. I have had limited experience with counselling/mental coaching in my life and Ben has made the whole exercise painless, fun and at times confronting when realising why I may feel the way I do about things, but it is all done in a supportive way and environment.

I have grown as a person and in my sport. I am gaining the tools needed to deal with the stress of competition and feeling more confident in my ability. I am thoroughly enjoying the journey and highly recommend Ben to anyone who wants to improve their lives in so many ways.”
