  • MICHAEL MAGEE

    Michael Magee

    PSYCHOLOGIST

    “Identify your mind’s favourite stories… Once you’ve acknowledged a story, that’s it—just let it be…Simply let it come and go as it pleases, while you channel your energy into doing something you value.”

    – RUSS HARRIS

    Michael takes a practical and creative approach to therapy, with a focus on developing a shared understanding of his clients’ goals, motivations, and personal history. Warm and engaging, Michael encourages reflection and exploration of how personal concerns may come to dominate our thoughts, feelings and behaviour.

    He has worked extensively with clients experiencing alcohol and drug misuse. For many clients, these issues are related to unresolved past issues, or as a way to deal with stress, anxiety, self-esteem and relationship issues. Michael believes that each of us has the capacity to build insight into our own motivations and behaviours, and to develop new and more adaptive ways to manage issues in our lives.

    With a passion for martial arts, Michael has travelled the world representing Australia in Taekwondo. This saw him supporting Olympic and Paralympic athletes to balance world-class performances with holistic person development. He enjoys integrating his knowledge of psychology to help high performance athletes train and perform under pressure.

    A career highlight involved supporting newly retired athletes with transition and transformation in their life after retiring from sport. Michael believes that all individuals hold the strength to support themselves in achieving mastery in new life directions.

    Michael’s Quick Stress Tip

    When we’re trying to achieve an important goal, we can often get nervous and find our stress peaking the closer we get. How do we manage this?

    Name the experience: Name familiar feelings and thoughts to recognise unhelpful patterns. 
    Normalise: Remind yourself these unpleasant experiences are normal. 
    Mindfulness: Your thoughts are not necessarily the truth. Practise mindfulness. Observe your experiences coming and going. 
    Commit to valued action: Ensure your actions are moving you towards what is most important to you even if it is temporarily distressing.
    Focus on the controllable: Mindfully attend to the things you need to do and can do to control the situation – not those you can’t. Do not push unpleasant experiences away, but try to accept these whilst bringing your attention back to doing what matters.

    Outside the therapy room

    When not in the therapy room you will find Michael enjoying snorkelling around Clovelly and Sydney’s other beaches or find him practising martial arts. He also enjoys playing the guitar and cooking.

Currently he is reading “The Edible Balcony” By Indira Naidoo which describes how to turn an inner-city apartment balcony into a green oasis and make seasonal recipes from the garden. Michael describes his garden as a “work in progress”.

    Darren on Dealing with Adversity

    Life can be tough and challenging. However in the face of adversity, pain or challenge it is critical that you fight to identify &/or maintain your values, and that which drives you. During these times it is critical to get a handle on your thinking, as what you think will have a significant impact on how you are feeling and how you are coping with your challenges.

    Outside the therapy room

    Darren has a lust for life. On weekends you’ll find him outdoors kayaking, chasing large game fish or exploring new bush trails. At night he loves exploring the great restaurants of Sydney and attending live concerts and going to the theatre. If you still can’t find him, he’s likely to be out drinking great coffee and watching the world go by.

    Anneke’s Anxiety Tip

    Focus on your breath and try to stay present. You can do this by breathing in and expanding the belly, moving the air up to the chest, then to the throat and releasing in the reverse manner – throat, chest and finally, letting go in the belly.

    Another tip I use myself, when stressed, is shower meditation: imagining that with each and every drop of water, all my tension, stress and worries are washed away. It really helps me relax at the end of the day.

    Anneke enjoys travelling, yoga, being in nature and close to the ocean, going to concerts/music festivals, exploring Sydney, snowboarding, catching up with her friends, staying in touch with her family/friends in Amsterdam and daydreaming about buying a pop-top campervan.

    Dafna’s Quick Grounding Tips

    We spend the majority of our time in our heads and disconnected from our physical, present-moment experience. ‘Grounding’ practices can help us access the supportive resources naturally available in our bodies that restore a sense of equilibrium and balance.

    Notice when the mind is overactive and rather than trying to “work it out”, simply feel into your physical body. Become aware of the contact between your feet and the ground, or your back and the chair, and let your weight sink into these supports.

    Take a break from the computer screen and check in with yourself – am I hungry? Thirsty? Tired? Or busting for the loo?! Make a regular habit of addressing your body’s needs.

    Spend time in nature – walking barefoot on the grass or swimming in the ocean whilst silently witnessing your environment and connecting to your senses.

    Outside the therapy room

    Having become somewhat “attached” to her newly adopted Ashtanga practice, you may find Dafna at her yoga studio exploring the body’s potential whilst trying to keep her ego in check!

    April’s small steps for dealing with grief & loss

    Feel your loss – Whether you’re numb, consumed by emotion or somewhere in between, it can be helpful to spend some time sitting with our loss. Although difficult, we need to feel the pain in order to process and make meaning from loss.

    Express your loss – Talk about it, write about it, sing about it, dance to it, put a tune to it. Expressing grief, particularly through writing or other creative pursuits, can help process the deeper emotional content of our grief

    Try to take meaning from your loss – What has this loss taught you about what’s important in life? How has it changed you and shaped you?

    Bring it back to basics – Look after yourself as best you can. Focus on exercising, eating proper meals, getting enough sleep, connecting with your support networks and keeping a routine to help give you purpose.

    Be gentle – There’s no right way to do it and you’re doing the best you can.

    Outside the therapy room

    April can be found on weekend adventures all over Sydney, trying out new restaurants and cafes. She’s a keen tennis player and loves being out in nature, hiking and chasing waterfalls. April savours time with those she loves, and spending time alone, reading, listening to podcasts and binge-watching Netflix series.

    “The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.”

    – JOSEPH CAMPBELL 

    Sam is a registered psychologist with a deep love of music and a passion for helping people. Rather than specialising in particular troubles or issues, however, it is his way of seeing things that characterises his approach. Sam’s practice revolves around awareness, acceptance, integrity, creativity and humour.

    In the therapy room, Sam suspends assumptions and keeps his mind open, making room for unexpected possibilities. He has a deep faith in people’s ability to change, and in the power of relationships, including therapy, to catalyse that growth in multiple ways, at different levels and tempos.

    Psychologist Surry Hills, Sam Barr

    His approach to therapy draws on the principles of Gestalt therapy, as well as other humanistic approaches. Sam values connection above all else, both within and outside of therapy.

    Sam once spent six months travelling around North and Central America, surfing and living out of a van. Later, he lived and worked in Quito, Ecuador for half a year. He says by far his greatest adventure, however, has been becoming a husband and father.

    A wise soul once said the fundamental question in any relationship is, “How can I be me, and be with you?”.

    This is no mean feat! It’s a worthy and fertile quest, however, one brimming with opportunities for awareness and personal growth, as well as joy, solace, and intimacy. As Martin Buber counsels, try to know what you feel, say what you mean, and do what you say. Welcome to the beautiful struggle!

    Outside the therapy room

    When he’s not doing the laundry and grocery shopping, Sam can be found playing Scrabble with his family, or bodysurfing with them at Sydney beaches. After dark, he’s out playing as many gigs as he can get, drumming with various small jazz combos at little venues around town.

    Charlene’s tip for dealing with anxiety

    1. Go after the cause, not the symptoms. Anxiety is a message from your body to stop what you’re doing and notice that you’re hurting. We need to find and tend to what’s beneath the message.

    2. Try to normalize the feeling. It’s a sign of your body trying to help.

    3. Nourish and move your body. It may not be the cure for anxiety but it does play a big part.

    Maja’s tip for dealing with anxiety

    Anxiety is a normal part of the human experience. When you notice some uncomfortable feelings, try to take a moment to check in with yourself.

    Ask, “What am I feeling? What’s going through my mind right now?” Noticing in this way allows for an opportunity to take a step away from the experience and remind yourself that thoughts are just thoughts, not facts.

    Include some mindfulness in your daily life. This can be as simple as paying deliberate attention to how that morning cup of tea tastes, or really listening to the lyrics of your favourite songs. Or take try a meditation course or yoga classes.

    Checking in with yourself as you go through your day helps cultivate mindfulness, which then grows your ability to observe rather than react to your thoughts and feelings.

    Outside the therapy room

    You can find Maja making art and wandering around art galleries like White Rabbit in Chippendale, taking in inspiration. She loves a dip in the ocean, hanging with family and friends, checking out live music and is currently trying to master the headstand in yoga class.

    Sarah’s tip for becoming more self-compassionate

    We’re often our own harshest critic even though the reality is, we all make mistakes, have personal failings and go through difficult times. It’s often easier for us to be kinder to others than to ourselves but here are some tips on how to turn compassion inwards:

    1. Give yourself permission to recognise that life is difficult for all of us.
    2. Take slow, deep breaths and allow yourself a few minutes to tune into your thoughts, emotions and bodily sensations. Do this with an attitude of openness and curiosity.
    3. Consider how you speak to yourself. What do you say and how do you say it? If your critic is kicking in, try acknowledging your pain and offering a comforting kind word. For example, you could say something like “This really hurts, I’m here for you right now”.
    4. Try offering a kind gesture. Think about how you might use your touch to comfort an injured child or puppy. Take your own hand and place it on your body in a gentle soothing manner. For example, if you feel pain in your belly or throat you could try placing your hand in that area or simply place your hand lovingly on your heart.
    5. Think about what you would say to a loved one in the same situation. Write it down in the form of a letter and read it to yourself.
    6. Consider if there is a kind action you can take. For example, can you speak to a friend or family member who cares? Or take some time out to engage in a relaxing or soothing activity.

    Sarah is usually at the park with her kids, climbing up trees or digging in the dirt. Her happy places include treks through mountains and jungles and chilling out on the beach.
