Sean Tonnet, Thrive Clinic Therapist specialising in relationships, men's health, couples and family therapy and parenting

Welcome, I’m Sean Tonnet,

I am an industry accredited and registered psychotherapist specialising in Relationships, Men’s Wellness, Parenting, Clinical Supervision and Training.

My reputed and respected practice melds creative, relational, psychotherapy methods through a focus on emotions, attachment theory and neurobiology.

I am a father of two and have been partnered with my wife for 16 years.

About Sean:

It’s been a rich tapestry of experience and a comprehensive journey of discovery to reach this point in my life. And has included – like for many of us – the highs and lows of wellness. My experience ‘surviving’ 12 years as a front line police officer with the NSW police force, and recovering from PTSD, was foundational in shaping the type of man, partner, and father I wanted to – and hope I have – become. Since this time, my journey of recovery, growth, and opening has been life-changing.

I have been working with people, community and organisations for over 25 years. My therapy practice, with couples, individuals and families, is client-led, process orientated and experiential in nature. I endeavour to work deeply with clients influencing an embodied and life-long change process.

I am also honoured to work as a clinical supervisor for other therapists and bring a decade of experience and industry accreditation to this space. In addition to working with many therapists individually, I am also currently engaged with several local organisations running group supervision for their therapeutic teams

Finally, I am a passionate educator and trainer and I run workshops nationally and internationally to other therapists, workplaces and community. Offering training in areas like Couples Therapy, Infidelity, Couples Communication and Team development.

My work has been reviewed on radio, television and in print. I am currently a presenter and team member of Pregnancy Birth and Beyond where I am privileged to interview contemporary thinkers and activists in the world of parenting and relationship, specifically around issues facing dads and men.

I have a Masters in Gestalt Therapy (completing a Lit Review on Attachment Theory and Couples Therapy), undergraduate studies in social science and welfare and specialised training in relationships, parenting and group facilitation including: Art of Relationship, Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples, Effective Group leadership, Trauma Informed Practice, Tuning into Kids/Teens and child consultation. I am a Clinical member of PACFA and a member of ACRC and GANZ. These memberships guide and inform the ethics and professionalism I bring to my practice.

I hope we get to meet sometime…

    “Although I have been working on myself for around 30 years, having grown up with profound neglect and abuse , Deb helped me get to the heart of some of my deepest core issues that were preventing me from being my authentic, true, happy, healthy and whole self…So many things have shifted inwardly and outwardly whilst working with her. Deb does not miss a thing -Her empathy, loving guidance and insight have helped me shift so many old beliefs, fears and blocks that were preventing me from the life that I truly desire.She is a master at her craft. And my gratitude to her is immeasurable, Thankyou Angel.”
