Hi. My name is Crispian Jones  (Cris, for short). Prior to moving into the world of counselling and psychology I worked as a commercial pilot operating throughout Northern Australia, some n PNG s a works supervisor literally living under canvas in the jungle for 12 months) , a musician in the Australian Army in Canberra and a factory hand at Peter’s Ice Cream factory and delivery driver for Tip Top Bakeries, both in Perth. I am a registered psychologist and have been working in the counselling field since 1984.

As a counsellor I have worked in the off shore oil industry on the oil platforms, the prison system and in Education, which means I have met and worked with people from all walks of life, across a range of socio-economic backgrounds and different cultures.  I believe my life experiences have equipped me well to work with and relate well to people, no matter their background.

My early training in Psychology was based on Gerard Egan’s philosophy, detailed in his widely read work “The Skilled Helper”. It is his integrated three stage approach to problem management and opportunity development that I still embraces within my practice, where the atmosphere is one of unconditional positive regard and non-judgementalism in a “do no harm” environment.  I embrace this focus within the therapeutic framework of  Brief Solution Focused Therapy (BSFT), wherein we focus on the future and resolution not on the problem per se.

Over the years I have continued to acquire and develop an eclectic range of skills, focusing mainly on those therapies which help you achieve the best outcomes in the shortest possible time. I work with a range of issues, including Loss and Grief, Trauma (motor vehicle, rape, robbery etc.), Panic Disorders, Phobias, Anger Management, Smoking Cessation, Weight Management, Relationship Counselling and Pain Management, to name just a few. I employ a range of techniques and skills to facilitate your recovery, bearing in mind that ultimately it is you the client who does the healing from “within”, with my help,  from “without”.

Some of the processes or “techniques” used to help you as part of your healing are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Hypnosis, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT, commonly referred to as Psychological Acupuncture) and more recently a newly emerging and very effective approach called Brain Working Recursive Therapy (BWRT).

I look forward to working with you and helping to make your life extraordinary. Why not, give me a call.
