Ainsley Cullen

Cullen Therapies

After 7 years of running a successful practice in London’s CBD, I’ve decided to return to my home country and set up a new practice at the Hunter Street centre. My passion is teaching clients to heal themselves through various psychological therapies. I practice Clinical Hypnotherapy, Counselling and the Emotional Freedom Technique (an energy meridian therapy). I utilise Brief Strategic Therapy to achieve the positive, permanent changes required by the client within around 3 sessions (sometimes more or less depending on the therapy used and the client’s needs). I have vast experience with both adults, children and adolescents and am able to treat most issues and disorders. I will commence at the Hunter Street centre towards the end of January. Please feel free to contact me with any enquiries.

Counseling is a collaborative process in which you are expertly guided to explore personal issues in a safe, non-judgmental and positive environment. The aim of counseling is to help you to resolve any personal issues that may be preventing you from developing a more fulfilling experience of life. Counselling is not advice giving, but guides you towards a stronger sense of knowing which solutions are right for you and feeling confident and comfortable with your own decisions.

Making the decision to come to counseling may be a big step. You may have been thinking about it for a while, or something may have prompted you to think about it now. As a suggested preparation for counselling, I would encourage you to consider the questions outlined on my website.

I still hold counseling as one of the biggest achievements of my life. I wouldn’t be where I am today without Linda’s help’.
(New mother who had suffered from depression and anxiety for years)


Coaching is a more directed process that focuses on generating options and designing solutions to specific everyday problems or planning to realise your work or life goals. Coaching draws on a range of techniques and strategies to suit your individual needs and learning style. In an atmosphere of encouragement, creativity, and personal learning you will be able to move through some of the barriers that block you from achieving your goals and live a more fulfilling life.

Coaching helped me move through the roadblocks that stopped me from putting myself out there. I’ve found my own creative stream that I can tap into whenever I need it. It used to be hard to get started; now I can’t wait to get going!’ Top Designer who was under performing

As a preparation for coaching, I would suggest you complete a Wheel of Life Satisfaction,which can be found on my website.
