Lewin de la Motte-Hall Psychotherapist | Group Facilitator M.Gestalt Therapy, Grad Dip, GT, Dip.Counseling. PACFA Clinical Member: 23568
Lewin is in private practice at Harbour Therapy Clinic in Coffs Harbour. The heart of Lewin's work is focused upon the embodiment of connectedness. The roots of this feeling have grown from his families pioneering work in the rehabilitation of Australian wildlife. This sense of belonging within a wider web of nature was contrasted by growing up in a middle class western society which created a sense of disconnect from the rawness and richness of his early wild-life. Lewin was fortunate to be able to dive back into this deep nature connection through experiences in indigenous cultures throughout his late teens and early adulthood. It is within these experiences of Deep Listening that he was propelled to find a profession which embodies this healing form of connected attention.
Lewin went on to complete 6 years of tertiary education in psychology and counselling, learning from leaders in the fields of relational, mindful and somatic psychotherapy. Academically he completed a masters thesis on Ecopsychology, as well as specialising in Wilderness Therapy with Adolescents. Both papers he wrote for professionals interested in bringing their psychological practice outdoors.
For the past 10 years Lewin have worked as a psychotherapist at both local community centres in rural towns and with international companies. He has refined his approach through intensive periods of trauma and addictions therapy at Australia's leading treatment centre, South Pacific Private Hospital. Today he is inprivate practice at Harbour Therapy Clinic in Coffs Harbour and also runs a small in person and online private practice and lead Wellness Consultancy for organisations seeking to incorporate healthy attention and communication skills.
