Services

Between us, we cover a broad range of services and people so that you can choose the approach you are most comfortable with. Often clients feel a preference to see a male or female, or even someone of a certain age.

Our team has a comittement to social development; we are sensitive to the expense involved. Each of us has a portion of our time available for people who cannot always afford the full fee, which we are able to discuss at an initial session.

 

Brief time-limited counselling

Many people who seek support only need a few sessions to deal effectively with their concerns.  It can be useful to have a clear agreement at the beginning about how long the process will be and also how much it will cost.  This is a more problem/solution oriented approach. This may involve a focus on how your thought process affect your mood and decisions.  Research supports the effectiveness of brief work for some people.

 

Relational Therapy

Crisis can be opportunity.  For those interested in expanding their self awareness and aiming for more enduring change a longer term relationship with the therapist is highly beneficial. An emphasis on what emerges between client and therapist underpins this work, allowing a testing ground for finding new ways of relating to your world.

 

Couples and relationship counselling

As we choose not to be involved in Family Court processes and mediation, we will refer you elsewhere if you need this.  Some couples find it useful to gain greater awareness of each others needs and responses, and find more constructive ways of communicating.  Others seek couples counselling because the relationship is ending and they need new ways of relating together.  We recognise it can be difficult to attend sessions within working hours,  after hours appointments are available and we welcome a discussion about what is possible and your unique needs.
