more about what we do

Our training and practice is based on an Integrative and Relational approach to therapy. In other words, we use a blend of different theoretical approaches depending on the priorities of a particular client rather than working from a fixed perspective. We believe that for therapy to work well, the main focus is on building a collaborative and secure relationship with our clients. There is also a greater emphasis on relationships generally, both with self and with others, since this is often where many of our difficulties may originate.

These are some of the areas we are experienced in working with:

Anxiety and stress
Abuse – emotional, physical or sexual
Bereavement, grief and loss
Childhood trauma
Death and dying
Domestic violence
Eating disorders
Family issues
Fertility issues
Flood impact
Low self-esteem or self-confidence
