My name is Curt Mason, I was born and grew up in London, England and have been living in Sydney for over 20 years. I love working as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist because I am always humbled by the struggles I support people to move through and the courage and change that I see people make.
Like everybody I too have had to face difficult life transitions, problems in relationships, feelings of uncertainty and loss. I continually attempt to make peace with my vulnerabilities, whilst learning to accept my own insecurities and times of unknowing. In fact it has been the working through of these life experiences that has brought me into the profession I am now in. These experiences are my richest resources and teachings and they help me to understand and support the people I work with in making lasting change in their lives.
I have 20 years experience as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist and over 30 years experience as a mental health worker. My initial training was as a Person Centred Counsellor and Psychotherapist at the Metanoia Institute. I have a Master of Gestalt psychotherapy at The Relational Institute Australia and have been trained in various other modalities over the years e.g. Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, Somatic Sex Educator and Trauma Recovery.
I work primarily with individuals in one on one sessions and currently work short term 8-12 weeks depending on what is required. I am also a group facilitator and trainer.
Individual sessions are $150 per hour.
Medicare does not currently offer rebates for counselling and psychotherapy.
