Counselling & Psychotherapy for Individuals

A confidential and non-judgmental space for people to explore the behavioural, cognitive and psychological concerns affecting their lives. Individual counselling and psychotherapy help people overcome their challenges, negative self-beliefs, past traumas and painful experiences in a safe and respectful environment, whilst promoting overall mental health, resilience and well-being.

Both short and long-term counselling and psychotherapy are available. Short-term therapy can be effective at relieving symptoms; it can also be beneficial during a crisis or period of unusually high stress or anxiety. Long-term treatment allows for deeper change and transformation to occur. The length and type of treatment will be discussed and agreed upon during an initial consultation.
