We work with you to make sense of long-standing patterns of thinking and behavior, increase your understanding, and confront destructive patterns, working towards beneficial change.

Counseling usually focuses on specific and current issues, to find ways of resolving problems. Psychotherapy involves more in-depth work and may take longer. We are committed to exploring with you, to decide which approach is right for you.

For meaningful change to take place, it can be important to explore the origins of a problem, rather than focus only on the symptoms. This is where a skilled facilitator can help to identify deeply held, often unconscious, beliefs or attitudes that can impact on the issue. Therapy can work on building a fuller or more appropriate way of living, which better expresses us individually in relation to the world.
