About Richard and Helena Boyd
Our family practice has a warm, homely, non-judgemental and relaxed atmosphere. It is run by a husband and wife team, Richard Boyd and Helena Boyd who both work as psychotherapists in Perth, specialised in the field of Body Psychotherapy. We are married for nearly 20 years and have a lovely daughter together. We both have had a lifelong interest in psychology, healing, body mind science and spirituality.
Richard carved out a highly successful I.T. and Business Transformation Consulting career in his 20’s and 30’s in Perth. Similarly Helena worked as a Software Engineer for 13 years in both Ireland and Australia. The Energetics Institute embodies our knowledge and passion of Body Psychotherapy theory and practice.
Our Unique Blend of Therapy Services
We are the only therapists who provide a complementary fusion of Counselling, Psychotherapy and Body Psychotherapy in Perth. We specialise in working with not just your mind, but also your body and your emotions. With that approach, we are particularly successful in treating and healing certain long standing conditions. Some of these include Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, Trauma, Anger and Relationship issues. Our wholistic approach gets to the bottom of and resolves many conditions where traditional talk therapy is generally more limited.
Our Body Psychotherapy extends beyond traditional counselling to treating and effectively healing the underlying causes of many physical illnesses and emotional conditions. We seek lasting healing by not only addressing the causes and origins of your issues. Initially we offer coping and compensation mechanisms. Our overall objective is to truly bring an end to dis-ease in your body and mind. Body Psychotherapy is a longer term developmental process, and not just a single event. With support and commitment, we witness profound personality change in some of our clients.
Our form of therapy is very liberating and enables you to evolve all aspects out yourself. Over time, you will find you are freer in your body and personality, you are happier and have more energy. There will be long-term and deep positive change in your character and in your life. We can help you find peace and contentment within yourself. From there you can find happiness in all facets of your life, including your relationship with others. Check out our Philosophy of Our Psychotherapy page which provides more information.
Our fees are at a reduced rate and range from $100 to $150 for a 55 minute session. Concessions may be available in certain cases. You do not need a referral from your GP. Check out our Fees and Appointments page for more detailed information.
Our Therapy Practice
“Lisdoonvarna” is the brass name-plate on our circa 1915 Federation architecture residence. We are committed to providing a welcoming and quality of care, professional service, within our aesthetic and tranquil therapy room. Inside our home practice, the ambience and colour and effects all combine in a positive calming way. Our furnishings touch your unconscious with archetypes and symbols that already create the basis for facilitating change and bringing the unconscious to life. Our therapy room reflects parts of both our masculine and feminine realities. Science has proven the effect of colour, mood, environment and symbols are positive influences on your therapeutic process. Comfort, homeliness and privacy are all part of the experience.
Our family practice is only 7km north from the city centre of Perth, Western Australia WA. We are located within close proximity to Beaufort St bus and Midland line train routes. There are ample parking facilities directly outside our therapy practice.
