Meet Greg

B. Bus (H.R.), M.A. (Applied Ethics), Grad. Dip. Couns., Dip. Past. Supervision

I am a registered counsellor operating under the Code of Ethics of the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA), the Christian Counsellors Association of Australia (CCAA), and the Association of Pastoral Supervision & Education (APSE – UK). Most of my work is with people whose roles relate to some aspect of Christian leadership and ministry. Together with my wife, Meryem (a psychologist), I have visited and worked short-term with cross-cultural teams in Central and South-East Asia.

Greg’s Counselling Approach

I see myself as a generalist counsellor. I work with individuals and couples. I am particularly interested in change and transitions, conflict transformation, loss and grief and relationship issues, as well as field preparation and debriefing.
