Guy Howick

Most people access counselling to deal with concerns such as mood disorders (depression/bipolar), anxiety disorders (excessive worry/fear of social situations) or alcohol/drug use. Counselling generally focuses on how our thinking and our behaviours might contribute to these concerns; how our childhoods, distressing events or prolonged distress may have distorted our sense of self and outlook on life and the world around us. Both how we think and how much time we spend thinking (rather than being in the here and now, focused on meaningful action) can be an important focus in terms of what affects how we feel.

Guy (psychologist) has extensive experience as a counsellor/psychotherapist working with mental health and alcohol or drug concerns. He has worked in both clinical and managerial roles in the health sector, across a range of settings, from community-based organisations, to aboriginal communities, to private practice.

Guy has experience in both individual and group counselling, working with complex problems, through a collaborative therapeutic relationship with clients, drawing upon scientifically supported counselling models, such as Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Schema Therapy. His practice is informed by the latest research into the effects of trauma, stress, depression and anxiety on the mind, brain and body. He also provides clinical supervision to human services workers and develops treatment programs for organisations, such as parenting groups for those struggling with drug use.

Guy is a consultant in partnership with Estelle Snelling (PsychMaps Consultancy: see He is affiliated with the Australian Psychological Society and registered with the Psychology Board of Australia.
