"Dealing with Nick Gwynn from Breathe Counselling Perth has been an absolute pleasure.
Nick cares about clients and is a very capable counsellor. Highly recommended!"

“Before my session with Ryan I was highly stressed, anxious and losing sleep as a result of a recent event. I had never participated in counselling before and was very hesitant to. However, after one session with Ryan I felt my stress and anxiety practically disappear. I was so comfortable throughout the entire session and Ryan helped to understand my situation in a way that gave me complete clarity and control over my actions. Not only did Ryan help during the session, he also provided me with tools and exercises that could be used to treat these feelings when needed. I cant recommend Ryan an Breathe Counselling enough! It can be daunting booking your first counselling session, but I guarantee that discomfort and stress will drop away as soon as the session begins.”

“Ryan has been a modest professional from the start of our journey. His knowledge of counselling is vast and extensive. He has assisted us in completely turning around our relationship. We now communicate openly and search for meaning with our actions. No truer word said that if everyone went to counselling before issues arise the world would be a much better place. I would recommend him to every one and anyone cannot recommend highly enough.”

“Highly recommend! I had Lovina for couple and individual counselling and she did a great job listening, understanding and addressing issues so they can be worked on!”

“I went to see Nick on short notice when I’d hit rock bottom and my Marriage was in tatters. I needed help with relationships and to work on myself emotionally, something I’d never even contemplated having issues with. Nick was kind and comforting, He gave me clarity and help with direction and I’ve found the sessions life changing in a absolutely positive way. Thanks Nick. I recommend Breathe Counselling to anyone in need of an extra hand to guide you through times in need.”

“Breathe Counselling has helped me tremendously through my journey to healing and finding myself. From setting what was previously non-existent boundaries with my family to healing deep wounds sustained as a child. Today I am a stronger person with healthy boundaries who has grown in the confidence to have a voice for myself, all through the help of Nick and Joanna. I would highly recommend Breathe Counselling Perth to anyone who is looking for support or guidance through difficult times, or even starting on your own journey to healing. Their approach was amazing and took away that feeling of trying to put the pieces of your broken puzzle together on your own.”

Necessary Conversations Without Unnecessary Conflict

December 7, 2019

BY NICK GWYNN Do you ever find yourself in a conflict with your partner, friend or family member, where it seems the only options are to either say nothing (stonewall), push the issue (argue) or cut the person off completely (divorce, separation, estrangement etc.) ??? You can feel as though nothing you can do will … Read more

Conflict Management

Two Sides To Every Story

June 28, 2019

One of the things I notice when I do couples counselling, is the oft-repeated human condition that epitomises the ancient proverb: “every person is right in their own eyes.” There are always two realities, two perspectives, two opinions that often don’t match. The anatomy of a conflict, in some way, shape or form is going … Read more

I don’t work Fridays. As far as vocational activity goes, on a Friday, you can stick it. Today (Friday) as I was riding my bike along the waterfront to catch up with a mate for coffee, I noticed that the tide was so high, it was covering the jetty. As I looked at it, this … Read more

By Ryan Hill MA Social Work , B. Psych.Sc I have worked with a number of clients who have experienced past trauma in my counselling practice. Trauma-informed practice is imperative to prevent unwittingly retraumatising clients, however clinicians must always be aware they may unwittingly trigger clients defence mechanisms. Therefore an awareness of childhood and adult … Read more

True Friends

November 13, 2018

C.S. Lewis once said, “Friendship is born at the moment when one person says to another: “What! You too? I thought I was the only one.” The importance of true friends can’t be overstated. Life is intrinsically richer with them and painfully poorer without them. The presence of ‘true friends,’ value-adds to our experience as … Read more

Rest

October 4, 2018

Sometimes I look at strangers’ faces,and try to guess what is going on in their worlds. Often times, the faces I look at seem to tell untold stories of grief and pain, quiet desperation and aching loneliness. Other times the faces narrate unbridled joy and felicity. But a common story I read on the faces … Read more

There are several things that I’m really thankful to my parents for, aside from giving birth to me of course…  The fact that we never got a TV until I was about 12 is one of them. Whilst at the time, I wasn’t always thrilled about this fact, in retrospect I am grateful… for a … Read more
