About Us

Richard and Helena Boyd

The Energetics Institute provides BodyMind counselling, psychotherapy and coaching services for those experiencing personal, relationship, family and work related difficulties, in Inglewood, Perth, Western Australia.

Our family practice has a welcoming, warm, non-judgemental and relaxed atmosphere.  It is run by Richard Boyd and Helena Boyd who both work as Body Psychotherapists in Perth, Western Australia WA.  Richard has had a lifelong interest in psychology, healing, spirituality, religions, and the emerging body-mind sciences, whilst carving out a highly successful I.T. and Business Transformation Consulting career in his 20’s and 30’s.  The Energetics Institute embodies his knowledge and passion of Integrative Body-Mind Psychotherapy theory and practice.

The Energetics Institute uses the principles and techniques of Integrative Body Mind Psychotherapy™ where our objective is to effectively and holistically treat the entire essence of each person and explore the depth of your issues, by consciously working with and incorporating mind, emotions and the body.  We provide a professional, ethical, respectful, caring and confidential psychotherapy and counselling service to individuals, couples and groups.  We work with those experiencing personal, relationship, and work-related difficulties.

Integrative Body-Mind Psychotherapy includes but goes beyond effective counselling to healing the root causes of many emotional conditions and physical illnesses.  The process powerfully converts character weaknesses into high energy levels, creativity, happiness, success and pleasure.  Deep and long-term positive change is the most remarkable benefit.  We aim to help you find happiness within yourself, so from there you can find happiness in your relationship to others.


“Lisdoonvarna” is the brass name-plate on our circa 1915 Federation architecture residence. Here we are committed to providing a welcoming and quality of care, professional service within a stimulating but tranquil and respectful environment.

Inside our practice, the ambience and colour and effects all combine in a positive calming way, yet at the same time the furnishings touch our unconscious with archetypes and symbols that already create the basis for facilitating change and bringing the unconscious to life. Science has proven the effect of colour, mood, environment and symbols as positive influences on the therapeutic process.

Our practice rooms are not sterile or rigid, they flow with an organised eclectic informality that relaxes as well as symbolises the eternal yin and yang energies of ourselves and nature. Varying needs for personal space are accommodated by a large room setting, and the rooms are a reflection of parts of both our masculine and feminine realities. Comfort and privacy are all part of the experience.

Our family practice is only 7km north from the city centre of Perth, Western Australia WA.  We are located within close proximity to Beaufort Street bus and Midland line train routes and have ample parking facilities.   We also offer phone, skype and email counselling to all other areas of Australia and overseas.  We offer affordable counselling and psychotherapy solutions and concessions may be available to certain clients.
