We offer a wide variety of helpful approaches, whether you need just a few sessions to sort out a specific problem or whether you feel you would benefit from a longer-term approach. In either case, you and your counsellor will follow the course that best suits you and your concerns.
Brief therapies we often use include Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy and MTP Trauma Therapy.
More in-depth approaches include Psychodynamic/Jungian therapy, Mindfulness therapy, and various Creative therapies which draw on unconscious resources for healing.
