We offer therapy in a variety of formats to best suit your needs:
For anyone who needs to address personal issues such as agoraphobia, ageing, identity, sexuality, or issues of conscience. These may relate to body or health issues, issues of loss, trust or existential loneliness. Individual therapy allows a confidential, space for you to share your private thoughts and feelings. You may require as little as 6 sessions of individual therapy. Sometimes it may take a little longer and up to 20 sessions are needed.
For those who require longer-term work, group therapy is often recommended. This is a more advanced form of therapy and requires commitment to attending a weekly therapy group, often for a couple of years.
Sometimes the issues we face are related to our relationships such as abuse, sex problems, trust and belonging concerns, communication issues and work related issues. Couples counselling allows a space for the two of you to speak about the needs of the relationship. You might need help in recovering from an affair or betrayal, feeling lost and isolated, are becoming bored, feeling conflicted when it comes to parenting issues, or have sensitivity to criticism or control issues.
The most complex of therapies. It has to take into account the needs of all the individual members of the family as well as that of the family itself. Children and extended family are part of the mix, and any final solution that works will require every voice to have its say. Families are not easy to define. In today’s world, separated families, blended families and extended families are a norm. Step-children, step-parents, foster families, adopting families, same-sex families…the list goes on and on. No longer can a family be defined neatly as a husband and wife with 2.4 children.
Child & adolescent therapy:
Children may be exhibiting distress that is self-generated. Sometimes the distress is connected with hidden difficulties within the family or surroundings. The symptoms may be connected to ADD, ADHD, ASD, Demand avoidance, Asperger’s syndrome, antisocial behaviour, poor concentration, anxiety, depression or bullying. Sometimes the family is invited in for an assessment and help may be offered to the child as well as other children and the parents. Even extended family might sometimes require help. The aim is to help the child integrate better within a healthy family.
