Tzach Maya takes a broad approach to psychotherapy and values working with the whole person: feelings, body, mind, and spirit.
The psychotherapeutic relationship is considered central to the therapy process, creating an opportunity for exploring both conscious and unconscious behaviours, emotional experience, beliefs and attitudes. Tzach seeks to provide an atmosphere in therapy which is empathetic, open and where each client is able to feel that their subjective and personal experience is understood and valued.
This type of therapy enables a client to deeply explore the repetitive painful interactions and experiences that may result from their limiting psychological patterns. This therapeutic process supports the person's growth engaging in relationship with themselves, others and living creatively in the world.
Depending on the specific need of each client, Tzach uses a range of theories to understand how to facilitate the process of change and growth. This includes theory that addresses personality and character, patterns of attachment, emotion, human development, embodiment, trauma theory, contemporary psychodynamic and relational analytic theory and practice.
Tzach is committed to his therapeutic work in which refined attention is given to client processes as a primary focus of his professional practice. He has a deserved reputation as encourager and supporter of the natural resources of his clients. His therapeutic methods are informed by current research evidence and contemporary approaches.
There is an emphasis on understanding the social and cultural context in which each client lives, taking into account gender, sexuality, social background and ethnicity.
Tzach has worked as a group and individual psychotherapist at the Gay and Lesbian Counselling Services of NSW (GLCS) helping gay men and woman in the process of coming out to their sexuality along side other life challenges, and at NorthSide Clinic as a group therapist for clients both in recovery and/or maintaining abstinency from substances.
Tzach has extensive experience as a phone counsellor with Lifeline Sydney and is currently supporting and contributing to the community by providing pro bono counselling and psychotherapy at the Aids Council of NSW (ACON).
