Whether you’re struggling with your relationships, your job, or you just feel down about life in general, we’re here to listen.

I work in a way so you can find, by your own words, your answers and solutions to the challenges you are going through. My worldview is that every man has what it takes to thrive in life inside of themselves. Meaning: whatever you are looking for by seeing me is within you. I will hold the space for you to stop, listen and see for yourself.
Felipe Oliveira’s experience in counselling men includes:
I dreamed of a place of wildness and hope that people can come get respite and healing, I have lived in Ipswich Queensland for over 30 years and I am passionate about helping people engage with their true selves. I lead men’s retreats and am especially involved in mentoring and leading young men. I am a PACFA Clinical Member and have over 15 years experience counselling. I am married with three grown children.
I began counselling in 2004. Since then I have seen many clients and have highly developed skills in individual therapy. I believe each person has the answer to any issues within them. My aim for counselling is not to give advice or to fix but is to put each client in touch with their true selves. I do this through one on one sessions and retreats.

The thing I love about counselling is the privilege of engaging deeply with people and supporting them to identify their strengths, values and motivations and move towards their goals and dreams in life. I believe we only have one shot at this life and we need to risk making the most of it.
I am a clinical member and accredited supervisor with PACFA (Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia). I am a Member of the Australian College of Relationship Counsellors and am ARCAP (Australian Register of Counsellors & Psychotherapists) Registered.
I have worked as a therapist since 1990, in community-based organisations and private practice and managed a counselling and training service for 10 years. I have lectured and tutored in tertiary institutions including Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Christian Heritage College (CHC), Australian College of Applied Psychology (ACAP), University of Southern Queensland (USQ) and the Institute of Body Psychotherapy, training students in counselling and body psychotherapy.
But, by far, my most valued qualification is who I have become as a healing person. Nodding sagely from across the room is not my style. I’ll be fully engaged with you every step of the way.
It will be my privilege to work with you.
