Phillip Garlick ~ Psychologist
After growing up in country NSW and serving in the military as a soldier for 5 years and more recently working in an adult male prison, Phil has deep appreciation for the impact of stressful environments on men and their families. Seeing those who thrive in these environments and those who have great struggle has given Phil a curiosity about human processes that influence the decisions that we make and the influence that those processes have on our personal relationships and life goals.
Without judgement Phil engages clients in a process of personal discovery that is tailored to each individual. Using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and compassion focused frameworks he strives to strike a balance between the critically important meaning making with the identification of practical solutions. Whether his client’s are being adversely affected by long periods of low mood, are experiencing anger or anxiety related to their past experiences or they are working on performance enhancement, Phil takes a strength based approach that values the client’s experience.
While Phil does enjoy the often quiet and calm work that happens inside the consulting room, his real passion is with the outdoors and a little adventure. If you’d like an outside session don’t hesitate to ask. Phil knows as we all do here at The Long Gallery, some of the best work has been done on foot!
