Dr. Roby Abeles

SE™ Practitioner


ABELES Psychotherapy & Consulting

I do not have an availability for new clients for the rest of 2017.

I have been a psychotherapist specialising in trauma and addiction resolution since 1989.

My experience is that deep pain and or trauma is at the core of all addiction. The addiction was a short term answer to an intolerable state of being, which then became a problem in itself, and overtook the person's life. So, if my clients have addiction issues, we work to relieve the pain at the core of that, while also teaching them alternate methods to deal with emotional and other upsets, so they then have a choice of what to do to help soothe themselves.

I provide my clients a range of integrative and regulative therapies, the aim of which, is to bring healing to all levels of a client's being; physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and energetic.

I believe that each of my clients has the innate capacity to heal, and I see my client and I as a team, both of us gently moving them towards an experience of both full resolution of symptoms and an expanded quality of life.

The way I present therapy to my clients has been the result of my own training in:

Body Oriented Psychotherapy (I have been an SE Practitioner since 2012)

Brain-Based Relational therapy (I am a Brainspotting trainer in Australia)
