Dr Steven Laurent
Dr Steven Laurent a registered clinical psychologist, and member of the Australian Psychological Society. He works with all mental health problems, but specialises in anger management.
I accommodate evening hours, home visits, and Skype sessions. Initial sessions run for 90 minutes (charged as one hour only); but sessions thereafter are 55 minutes long.
Style of Therapy
My main therapeutic method is what’s called Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I also draw from methods such as Existential Therapy, Mindfulness training, Motivational Enhancement therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment therapy (if and when the current empirical evidence base warrants it). These names may or may not mean much to you. Basically, therapy is about providing a time and a space for you to confront your problems, and an evidence-based technology for you to do so. I want to fix whatever’s hurting you, at least if it needs fixing, and help you move past any psychological barriers that prevent you from flourishing. But beyond that, I hope to inspire you to go after a life that really turns you on, an authentic and meaningful life, not just a safe or successful one.
