Personal Profile

Adrian Hekel Home_edited.jpg

I graduated from Flinders Medical School in South Australia in 2005. I pursued degrees in science and teaching, which included two years immersed in neuroscience research at the University of Queensland. I worked in various hospitals and clinics in Adelaide, Melbourne and Coffs Harbour.

I have since been offering a counselling-focussed integrative practice in Coffs Harbour, and am now embarking on a new chapter with relocation in 2024 to Banyo Clinic in the northern suburbs of Brisbane Qld, where I will be available to see new face to face clients.

With a passion to uncover more about health and healing than was offered by the standard curriculum I have  pursued courses in nutritional medicine, hypnotherapy, acupuncture, eye movement trauma therapy (EMDR), Internal Family Systems (IFS) and most recently Comprehensive Resource Model (CRM) and TEAM-CBT.


I have also spent time exploring various spiritual traditions - most notable Tibetan Buddhism - and have written a short novel about philosophy, called 'The Heart of The World'. 


The focus of my work has gradually shifted from information to transformation - to discovering how to ‘meet people’ at deeper and more effective levels in my day to day work.

I foresee a future medicine where primary health practitioners will address spiritual and trauma healing needs in parallel with diagnosing and treating medical conditions with the best available evidence. 

I now live in the northern suburbs of Brisbane near beautiful Moreton Bay, passionate about walking a path of service amidst daily life.
