Boyd is a Clinical Psychotherapist with a 30 year career across many facets of Psychotherapy and Consumer Psychology. Most of his work was primarily in Consumer and Organisational Psychology. As a result he has successfully run his own large company as well as advising many of Australia’s largest corporations on successful approaches to understanding the human decision making process.
In 2014 Boyd switched focus from consumer and behavioural psychology to Relational Psychotherapy (Relationships and Marriage) and this has become the driver behind the creation of Seabreeze Therapy.
With this change, also came a shift in focus to preventative psychology. This idea is about working to create interventions with Seabreeze clients to achieve calm, to work through and resolve issues before they become major problems. As a keen sailor Boyd saw the effect of the afternoon sea breeze coming in at the hottest time of the day to cool and calm down everything and everyone it touches. When times and talk get heated, it’s the techniques and wisdom shared at Seabreeze that will help cool and re-balance the temperature of your life.
30 Years Experience
Boyd has been at the epicentre of high powered business. So he knows and understands the stresses and fears that’s successful people have. The stress, the anxiety and sometimes that feeling that you should not be there, that you are an imposter. Boyd has extensively studied, researched and worked with many high performance business executives. Together they were effective in lowering the stress of work in the 21st century.
The approach Boyd takes is one of understanding. First, he helps you understand yourself, your drives, and the forces influencing your behaviours. Then, by understanding these factors you can begin to change behaviours you want to change and strengthen those you don’t. Boyd’s therapeutic approach is influenced by the great research and work of psychological researchers Drs John Gottman, Julie Gottman, Jeff Young, John Bowlby and Mary Ainsworth. The approach is very much centered around the idea of; who we are, is the sum of all our life experiences.
An important part of the work at Seabreeze, is assisting couples with premarital psycho-education. Premarital psycho-education is the process of allowing you to understand your prospective partner’s personality. It’s about learning how they deal with stress, and how you can help your partner, not only in the good times, but also the tough times. In addition, this helps to make the relationships stronger and healthier. This work is important, and is part of a major research study that Boyd is conducting so as to reduce relationship failure and improve marriage outcomes.
