Alex Wittmann - Counsellor and Educator

Professional Practice...

In conjunction with my private practice I also:

  • Work for a branch of UnitingCare that provides psychological and crisis support to family and friends following a suicide.
  • Provide group-work and counselling for full-time Carers of the chronically ill, disabled, aged and frail.
  • Tutor at QUT
  • And, volunteer at the Mater Cancer Care Clinic.

Competency in counselling has been developed through two pathways:

  • Informally via many years’ experience in community and volunteer settings, adult education roles, student support and employee liaison duties.
  • And formally via post-graduate studies (Masters in Counselling – QUT) plus extra-curricular research in Love, Relationships, Personal Development, Life-Meaning and Positive Psychology.
As such I combine the latest research and evidenced-based practices with broad work/life experiences.

As a registered member of the Queensland Counsellors Association (QCA) I adhere to their Code of Conduct and the associate PACFA ethical framework - and utilise ongoing professional supervision to monitor my work. 

Formal Education...

Masters of Counselling (QUT), Bachelor of Adult and Vocational Education (Griffith University), Certificates in: Positive Psychology, Conflict Resolution, Stress Management, Critical & Lateral thinking, Cultural Awareness, Teamwork, Instruction and others.

This has led to an integrated, client-centred and strength-based approach that includes; Brief, Solution Focused, Narrative, Person-centred, Emotion FocusedCBT and Psycho-Education.

Personally, I love to travel, snorkel/free-dive, surf and keep fit in general. I also love reading, life-long learning, plus hanging-out and good DnM's with family and friends.
