Nelson Ruggeri

Mental Health Clinician

Nelson Ruggeri is a trauma and complexity therapist with 20+ years’ experience in a variety of settings. He works with parents, women, men, couples, and families. Nelson’s professional qualifications and experience provides him with a wide range of techniques to suit a range of client situations, including trauma, depression & anxiety , parenting and addiction to name a few.

There is no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to counselling, so getting to know a client and their situation is essential for determining what will work best. Nelson’s style does not focus on simply treating symptoms but aims to identify and address the root causes of issues.

By establishing a solid connection with clients, Nelson creates a safe space with a teamwork approach of working together to identify and achieve their goals. Nelson does not ‘tell you what do’ but collaborates to determine where you want to go and how to get there.

Using an evidence-based professional approach, Nelson is passionate about providing the best possible opportunity for clients to understand their situation and steer their lives in the direction they want to go.

Nelson feels most inspired by witnessing the transformation in someone who has been struggling, and then through a combination of psychoeducation and therapy techniques, they are able to break out of previous patterns that have held them back and move forward.
