The Therapist

Epic Psychotherapy aims to provide affordable Psychotherapy to people who are not served by existing models. I wanted to support people who are struggling with everyday battles and reassure them that it is ok to ask for help.

Epic Psychotherapy is the therapist for tradies because I understand what it is to be working class and the sacrifices you make for your families. We do provide for sectors, such as people recognised under the NDIS and the stressors associated with working with the Public.

My name is Evan Player, I am a Psychotherapist and Credentialed Mental Health Nurse with over 25 years of experience supporting people with their mental health.  I invite you to get to know me and see the personal side of why I am passionate about helping you, I am The Therapist.

The Therapist for Tradies

Before becoming a Mental Health Professional, Evan began his working life in a Foundry swinging a sledgehammer to break open and processing metal castings and driving a grinder over those castings. He understands hard work. He spent a period of time serving in the Army before finding his calling as a Mental Health Nurse.

As an owner-builder, he worked with and contracted tradies to build two homes. He was always up for a conversation and keen to learn what he could from those around him. His excellent listening skills gave him a better understanding of the psychology of this workforce and the ethics required to become a successful tradie. He learned that the best Tradies have a natural understanding of psychology, but not always the academic language to express it. He was able to identify the theory he had learned at University, to the everyday practice of successful Tradies. Evan can speak both the language of the street and of the academy.

One observation Evan made was that tradies may not have someone to listen to them or take seriously the problems that they can face in life. They could not show a vulnerability to peers, competitors, or clients. Evan can understand why this is ill-advised at times. Often tradies suffer in silence. Evan offers a confidential service where it is safe to be listened to and discuss the difficulties and pressures of being of the ‘working class’. Evan is open to seeing tradies outside of traditional business hours at times that suit them and their businesses in an environment or a relaxed setting that suits them.

Supporting all people,
all walks of life.
