We offer counselling across the lifespan from small children, youth to adult clients. All therapy is based around Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), ACT and other strength based therapies. The aim is to provide brief and strategic therapy that allows the client "move on" as quickly as possible.
Children’s therapy may also include drawing, sand tray and play therapy. Regular updates with parents (both face to face and via telephone) is also an important part of the therapy for young people. Sessions are 50 minutes. Fees as per the table (overleaf).
