Counselling with Chris

Hi, I am Chris Wood, the director and owner of Listen and Care Counselling in Bayside Melbourne.

My aim is to help you to make positive changes in your life and improve your overall wellbeing. I have a person-centred counselling style, meaning that you as the client are my focus. I work with individual adults aged 17 and above. Please note that I do not provide couples counselling, or family counselling services.

Listen and Care Counselling uses evidence-based and well known counselling therapies including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), EMDR, Narrative therapy and Solution focused counselling, as well as stress reduction modalities including Mindfulness.

I am a professional Counsellor and have achieved Level 4 registration with the Australian Counselling Association (ACA). My qualifications include a Master of Counselling from Monash University and a Bachelor of Science. I have extensive experience working in private practice and EAP (Employee Assistance Programs).

I have completed training in Eating disorder counselling with the Australian and New Zealand Association of Eating Disorders (ANZAED) and is listed as an Eating disorder counsellor through the Butterfly Foundation’s ‘Find a professional’ page. Chris has also undertaken training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and is an Associate member of the EMDR Association of Australia.

I provide counselling to plan-managed or self-managed NDIS Participants, under the category ‘Improved daily living skills’. Chris has experience working with participants who have psychosocial disabilities including autism, ADHD, ADD, OCD, as well as chronic diseases such as MS and CFS.

If you require Career counselling or wish to develop employability skills, Chris has over 12 years of experience as a qualified Careers practitioner and is registered with the Career Development Association of Australia (CDAA).
