Counselling can help you resolve specific difficulties or relationship problems in a short number of sessions. Counselling sessions are solution-focused where we assist you in dealing with a specific problem or crisis; clarify issues, explore options, increase understanding, problem-solving and develop strategies.
Psychotherapy and counselling are often used interchangeably since they have similar functions in helping people to make positive changes in their lives to gain greater well-being and happiness. Psychotherapy often means dealing with on-going general conditions such as stress, anxiety, fears, depression whereas counselling usually refers to specific life problems or crisis and is more short-term.
Coaching can be a very powerful way to develop yourself personally and in the workplace to boost your performance but also to bring more meaning, engagement, positive emotions, sense of accomplishment and better relationships into your life. It can also be preventative; resolving work stress and problems before they escalate into crisis.
Coaching can follow Counselling once the specific problem is resolved where coaching is more about self-development and preventing further crisis.

We incorporate the latest research finding in psychology and neuroscience. Most of all, we are solution-focused where we encourage you to discover your strengths and what works for you and to come up with your own answers, conclusions and solutions.

You may seek supervision in order to gain registration to become a Psychologist or you may seek Supervision to enhance the quality of care delivery. Supervision can give you the support that you feel is lacking in your work place which can make you feel unappreciated, defensive and contribute to burn out.
Supervision serves two functions; being supportive as well as educative. We offer a non-judgmental approach to sustain and inspire you. We will encourage you to learn new skills and explore how you can apply them in your own unique way for the benefit of your clients.
Supervision is a time of self-refection where you can debrief challenging situations, being free to review situations and explore various perspectives and protocols. We believe that supervision should be a rewarding experience that provides you with the support that you need to increase your level of confidence, well-being and skills. We can help you to develop further your level of skills in evidence-based practices such as in the clinical applications of Mindfulness (MBSR, MBCT, ACT), Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy(CBT), Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) and Positive Psychology.
