How can therapy help you?
If you ever think…
Something just doesn't feel right.
It's suddenly got too much.
I feel unsure.
I should be able to cope.
I'm out of my depth.
We're both unhappy.
There are too many shoulds, musts, have tos.
I was making progress but now I'm hitting a wall.
This is all so new and I feel vulnerable and overwhelmed.
I've been doing this for years but I'm starting to feel tired, worn out and doubts are creeping in.
…. then we can work this out together.

Those experiencing life changing moments
Life can suddenly change direction, often at unexpected moments. Counselling and/or Ecotherapy can allow us to tune into the world around us to keep ourselves rooted during emotional storms.
People seeking to adapt to a new environment
We are generally change-averse beings: we like to understand our environment in order to maximise our chances of success. A changing environment can upset this goal, but counselling and Ecotherapy can give us a new perspective on change as we understand that the entire world is dynamic and not as constant as we thought.
Couples in need of partnership or marriage counselling
When two people's needs and lives are bound together, any diversion can sometimes put a strain on the togetherness that you wanted to create when you first got married. Counselling of this form often works best with both parties involved, but sometimes individual sessions can help a partner see the situation from an independent point of view.
Individuals going through separation and divorce
When a marriage breaks down, a person's grounding in a previously stable and definite future can be replaced by uncertainty. What happens next? What am I going to do? How am I going to start my life again? Counselling can help put these questions into perspective and allow you to see such a change for the better and to accept and move forward to new opportunities.
Perhaps the most difficult time in one's life is the momentous transition from child to adult. Not only does the body go through tremendous physical changes, but adolescents are presented with a series of new perspectives on their lives as they begin to ask what their place in the world is. During childhood these questions don't arise because the child's place is firmly connected to their parents or guardians. As they begin to perceive that many of the duties that their parents take care of on their behalf - work, providing food, shelter - and as they begin to identify their place within their social peers, the previously unbreakable connection to their parents takes a new form. This change can be difficult to navigate without direction as children begin to become independent decision makers in their own lives.
