Personal Statement from Gary Noble, Principal Counsellor:

  • I have lived in Logan City since 1993 in Marsden, Jimboomba and Tanah Merah, and am very passionate about sharing God’s love through my skills and talents within the Logan City community.
  • My goal is to see every person within our community have access to counselling services, and work with other like minded professionals to break down stigma and barriers that restrict people (especially men) from seeking out these services. I use a strengths based perspective therapy underpinned with traditional therapeutic aspects of attribution and defence mechanism theories, as well as cognitive behavioural therapy.
  • My professional experience was as a Chef for 14 years before I went to university for 4 years, and have since primarily worked in the areas of Vocational Rehabilitation and Family Dynamics.
  • My community involvement has seen me volunteer as a J P since 1987, be a foster carer, a scout leader, soccer coach, and coordinate the “yes we care program” for Logan City.
