Carl Nelms
Registered Psychologist

Carl is a registered Psychologist, and founder of Blokes Psychology.
He is extremely passionate about assisting men to overcome the stigma of reaching out for support. It is his vision that by creating a service targeted towards males, more men can improve their psychological health and well-being and stop suffering in silence. Ultimately, more men will seek and receive the support they desperately need and they and their families can start living a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

Carl is naturally caring, easy to engage with and tailors his approach to fit each individual, regardless of gender, age, ethnicity or religion.

Carl has worked in community health settings providing counselling, mental health outreach support, with ex-offenders re-integrating into society, with various national helplines and has experience and a specific interest in supporting individuals experiencing depression, anxiety,
anger and addictions.
In addition, he has worked extensively with Asylum Seekers, newly arrived migrants & Refugees (both on & off shore).

Carl will work with you to identify and address the challenges and issues, specific to your situation. He will then assist you to set and achieve your goals with practical, solution focused strategies and support.
