Registered Counsellor

Christopher (CJ) Stewart

Languages Spoken:

CJ is an ACA registered counsellor who completed his master's degree practical experience with an LGBTQIA+ peer led organisation. With a particular interest in counselling techniques which are Autism and neurodiversity sensitive, he practices with a person-centred and trauma informed approach. CJ has a background in education and career counselling.His skills and interests are focused on supporting clients from diverse communities who are experiencing major life changes such as pre/post adult diagnoses, new or troubled relationships, gender identity, sexuality, and career transitions. In his free time CJ enjoys designing, making, repairing and restoring items in his workshop, walking the dogs and relaxing outdoors with family.CJ’s work is based on the philosophy that his client’s are capable of the change that they want to make, and that this can be done in multiple dimensions such as thoughts, feelings, relationships and culture simultaneously. His skills and techniques come from a wide array of psychotherapeutic theories and are guided by a framework known as Integrative Multitheoretical Psychotherapy. This allows him to facilitate his clients utilising their lived experience and view of what success would look like for them. This model is flexible and person centred, and CJ will tend to keep himself out of your story, see it through your eyes, and empower you with skills and techniques that you can use to define and shape where you fit in the world.CJ is comfortable with difficulties and solutions which are both complex and dynamic from session to session. Supporting better self-understanding and making sense of identities and relationships is his goal, and this is done through a deep capacity for empathy and understanding and providing a space for others to explore themselves without judgement.Areas of practice: living, loving and working with Neurodiversity (ADHD, Autism, PDA etc), pre and post diagnosis, disability, sexuality and gender, men's mental health, trauma, identity and life transitions, personal growth, self-improvement and relationship issues.
