Our Approach & Values

We believe each client is unique. Their experience and history is theirs alone. We work together to understand the issues and underlying emotional response to what they are experiencing. We work with our clients to focus our work in short term counselling. We also offer longer term therapy to help clients who want a deeper understanding of their self. Our work is client led and client focused.
