Individual Psychotherapy and Counselling

We may wake up feeling anxious, irritable, sad or empty. Often these are driven by worries, doubts and self-criticism. Facing these emotions can make every day feel like an uphill battle, leaving us drained and exhausted. These feelings may be triggered by a significant life event or have crept up over years of wearing ourselves out. 


Psychotherapy supplies us with tools to manage our thoughts, feelings and behaviours. A key element of psychotherapy is the confidential, non-judgmental space you are given to safely share your story. In this process, a mental health professional will guide you through the storm and help you to improve how you feel. 


When our emotions improve, we will be better able to apply techniques to successfully manage daily challenges and find positive solutions to complicated situations. These will also allow us to face future issues with a calm and confident disposition.

Address Personal Challenges

Sometimes we have things from our past or present that we have not entirely processed and that can affect the way be behave or feel in the now. 

Psychotherapy conducts an assessment and analysis of our dysfunctional behaviours and explores what they are driven by and how they developed. You will receive a schematic visualization of how your feelings, thoughts, and behaviours interact in ways that are not beneficial to you. This provides us with areas to target in therapy. 

Whether you wish to work through challenges from the past or present, psychotherapy can help you address whatever you wish to let go of. Often the best way to process something in a healthy way is to face it head on, equipped with the support of a professional and an effective set of tools.

Love is a wonderful, uplifting feeling, yet faced with daily routine, intimate relationships can suffer as they absorb stress and negativity. Over time, conflict may build up and blur or damage intimate connections. This can cause us to forget what we love in the other person or make us question whether we should keep trying to make it work.


Couples psychotherapy can help to differentiate our personal challenges from our relationship and provides techniques to improve interpersonal communication, resolve conflicts and re-connect in a healthy way. It further offers a confidential, impartial platform in which both parties can share openly and honestly, and be heard. This can build trust and facilitate communication, especially about difficult topics, and helps us to work toward positive resolution.
