Greig Phillpot, B.A.(Hons), M.A.P.S.
Sydney CBD Registered Psychologist and Psychotherapist
***Medicare rebates available with a referral from your G.P.
I am a Sydney psychologist who is passionate about helping individuals and couples change their lives for the better.
I provide psychology services from two locations in the Sydney CBD:
- Suite 8, Level 8, 229 Macquarie St, Sydney, NSW, 2000
I believe it is essential that I am there with you in the most ‘present way’ that I can be. I am not a remote, cold, non-human therapist. You are not a problem to be solved; you are a human being in need of understanding and encouragement.
All injury occurs in relationship, sometimes through the direct actions of another person and sometimes through the omission of something that we needed at the time. Both of these types of experiences injure us. It is essential in therapy and counselling that you are met by another human being, who is capable of hearing, seeing and feeling you. This affirms your value and supports you in making changes that are in your best interest.
I believe that our experiences are held within our body. They cannot be anywhere else. When we are hurt in some way our body contracts and these hurtful experiences become ‘locked’ within us. This is why years and decades after something has injured us, people come to therapy and end up sobbing about something that happened 20 or maybe 30 or more years before.
The reality is that ‘time doesn’t heal’ it just allows the experience to sink further from consciousness but it is still playing a significant role in our life. So when I work with someone I am interested not just in what they say or think, but how they feel, how they are in their body, what emotion needs to come out so that the person is healed. The emotional and physical release is letting this ‘locked in’ experience be set free from the body.
I believe that everyone can grow and change. While we have breath we can change our life for the better. I acknowledge that it isn’t always easy, but I know it can be done. With a skilled and caring therapist and commitment and courage on your part your life can change and move towards more happiness and contentment. I work with couples and individuals who struggle with issues like:
- anxiety and depression
- loss of meaning
- lack of direction in life
- addictions, including alcohol dependence
- unresolved physical and sexual childhood abuse
- management of anger and difficult emotions
- communication skills
My approach includes Body-Centred Psychotherapy, Family Therapy, Interpersonal Psychotherapy, Mediation, Mindfulness approaches. I can conduct sessions for individuals, couples and groups. I am a registered psychologist, so can offer private health fund rebates or Medicare rebates if you have a referral from your G.P.
