  • let's talk!

    Therapy is an opportunity for you to invest time in yourself, and to proactively make your life feel easier and more fulfilling. You set your own goals, decide your own pace of progress, and decide how long your therapy lasts.


    Our team offers confidential, non-judgemental face to face and online counselling sessions to help you with issues of depression, stress & anxiety, relationships and life changes.


    At the beginning we get to know each other. We feed back to you what we notice about you and what you talk about. We will also encourage you to develop a moment by moment awareness of how you are feeling, thinking and acting in the here and now. This helps you gain a deeper awareness of yourself, to notice patterns in your life, and discover how limiting yourself by avoiding certain situations or experiences, being stuck in the past, worrying about the future, or compulsively analysing how you and your life should be is holding you back from fully living.


    Later on we may coach you through activities that can help you face your fears and give you chance to try thinking, feeling and acting differently than what you're used to, all within the safety of the counselling session.


    Together we will look at what it feels like to step out of your comfort zone, to tackle your fears, to let go of any ways of thinking, acting and feeling that don't serve you, and to gain confidence to live a happier and more fulfilled life.
