Individual Counselling

We provide Counselling and Coaching for:

Do you want to change how you're feeling,

but everything you've tried just hasn't worked?

Maybe you’re going through a hard time 

and your coping strategies aren’t working anymore.


You’re looking for some extra support to get you feeling better.

Do you...

  • Lie awake at night with worry about the future?

  • Find yourself crying or feeling down throughout you day?

  • Avoid specific activities or people out of fear?

  • Have intrusive thoughts that interfere with your ability to focus?

  • Feel dissatisfied with your life?

  • Experience periods of hopelessness or helplessness?

  • Feel like you've tried it all (yoga, meditation, exercise, self-help books....) and nothing has worked? 

You're Not Alone

We know it's hard to find someone you trust and maybe you think your struggles can't be resolved.

After twelve years of working with clients, we have met and supported so many people just like you.

Many people feel stuck in feelings of anxiety, depression and trauma every day.

Our diverse and highly experienced team is here to help


We can help you find a therapist to make your life better now.

Is Therapy Worth It?


Therapy is an investment that can bring joy, and peace of mind into your life and those close to you.


We invest in things that bring us joy all the time, cars, vacations, clothing and food...


But unlike these material items, the skills and tools that you learn in therapy will bring you lasting empowerment and ultimately happiness for a long, long time.
