Clinton Power Marriage Counsellor Sydney

Clinton Power, Relationship Counsellor in Sydney

I am a qualified counsellor, psychotherapist and Gestalt therapist who has worked for close to a decade as an individual and couple counsellor. I have encountered a wide range of relationship issues that individuals and couples struggle with. I have a passion for assisting individuals and couples to realise their relationship dreams.

In my couples work, I help couples create relationships that are respectful, loving and meaningful. The focus of my work with couples is looking at how they deal with difference and the perennial question ‘how can I be me, and be with you?’.

I work in private practice from two offices, located in the Sydney CBD and Newtown. I am also a faculty member of Jansen Newman Institute of Counselling and Applied Psychotherapy, where I facilitate group therapy for counselling and psychotherapy students and train them in therapeutic skills. Teaching at a tertiary level means I am up-to-date with the latest developments and trends in counselling and psychotherapy.

My relationship counselling philosophy

I was a professional classical musician for over 15 years and played with world-class orchestras in Australia and overseas. As a performer, I was often dealing with performance anxiety and nervousness, and this led me to develop an interest in the mind and the psychology of performance. Being a musician, I was drawn to the creative and experiential in my therapeutic work. This fits well with the Gestalt Therapy framework that I use, which views the whole of you in the context of your life situation, family, community and culture.

The cornerstone of my practice is valuing and raising awareness of ‘what is’; experimenting with new ways of understanding your world and relationships; increasing self-support and trusting your inner authority; developing healthy boundaries and supporting creative choices and responsibility in your movement toward health.

In 2011 I created the Australia Counselling Directory to help Australians access high-quality mental health support wherever they live in Australia.

Professional memberships

I am a clinical member of Gestalt Australia & New Zealand (GANZ) and a member of the Psychotherapists and Counsellors Federation of Australia (PACFA) Reg. No. 21029. I adhere to their codes of practice and ethics in my work.

I participate in regular clinical supervision and professional development to enhance my work and ensure my clients get the best possible help.
