Seeking help for life’s difficult moments isn’t easy. As an experienced provider of psychotherapy and counselling in Melbourne and offering telehealth therapy Australia-wide, Ben Fishel has helped many clients navigate life’s challenges and make the transition towards happier, healthier, and more fulfilling futures.

Are anger or anxiety getting in the way of your relationships?

Do any of these sound familiar?

“Why can’t I just appreciate what I have?”

“Sometimes I just don’t get why I do what I do.”

“Why do we keep arguing? Didn’t we already talk about this?”

“I’m trying and trying but honestly I just feel a bit powerless.”

“This isn’t how I pictured things turning out.”

“Where do I go from here?”

“Is it normal to have all these doubts?”

“How do I fix this? I don’t understand what went wrong.”

“They haven’t texted me back, did I do something wrong?”

“I’m supposed to have my life together by now.”

Whether you’re dealing with anger management, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, trauma, or just looking to take a proactive approach to your mental health, Ben’s psychotherapy and counselling approach can help, providing you with the support and guidance you need to overcome any obstacle and achieve your goals.

Ben's Counselling Approach

Ben's work draws from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Existential Psychotherapy, Neuroscience and Mindfulness-Based Approaches.

Post-traumatic Growth & Transformation

The basis of Ben's work is posttraumatic growth—a response to challenging and traumatic life events that results in positive personality change: strength, resilience, courage, self-awareness, authenticity, and more engagement in life.

Respectful, Caring & Challenging

The relationship between therapist and client is built on mutual respect, meaning you can question and challenge the therapist just as they do. Ben is not a magician, a wizard or a mind-reader, but he is highly skilled, takes his work very seriously, and genuinely cares about each client's wellbeing.
