Having someone to talk to is just the beginning of therapy. Counselling can help you to develop self-awareness of who you are, who you want to be and how you are going to to get there.
Practically speaking counselling helps clients to draw awareness to the continuous stream of thoughts, feelings, emotions, physical sensations, and memories that we each experience throughout each day – some sweet, some sad, some neutral. These private experiences are neither bad nor good. It is the choices that we make, as a result of these experiences that shape our lives.
Our approach helps you take effective action towards the things you can control while making peace with those you can’t. We aim to support you to develop strategies to confidently address life’s challenges and improve your mental health, work-life balance, relationships and general wellbeing.

We understand that relationship breakdown can cause a great deal of emotional pain. Most people arrive for their first session feeling stressed, overwhelmed and daunted. Our aim is to provide you with a comfortable and safe space, so you can develop a greater understanding of yourself and your loved one, foster your friendship, learn to communicate effectively and navigate a road map for repair.
Whilst some relationships heal and flourish with counselling, others may come to a natural close or may have already ended before counselling begins. In this circumstance, we can assist you to continue to keep the paths of communication open, foster a respectful friendship that honours the love you have shared, consider how children, family and friends may be impacted and help negotiate solutions for the road ahead.
If you’re currently in a relationship, you can attend counselling alone or with your partner. We find a combination of both couples and personalised sessions provides the most effective outcomes. Additionally, if you are no longer in a relationship but would like to focus on this area of your life we are happy to accommodate this. This can include reflecting on starting a new relationship or understanding past relationships and how they impact on the present.
