Short- and longer-term counselling and psychotherapy for help with a wide range of issues

People seek counselling or psychotherapy for a number of reasons. The treatment offered will depend upon the issue that you are struggling with and whether you or an adult or an adolescent seeking counselling. Short term counselling will focus on the problem in the here and now and seek to find a solution through making sense of the core conflict. Long term individual psychotherapy provides an effective treatment for a range of psychological disorders, both as a treatment in its own right and as an adjunct to other forms of treatment. It can contribute significantly to the individual's mental and physical health, to their sense of well-being and to their ability to manage their lives more effectively.

Relationship Counselling will focus on the problem within the couple relationship and help to understand and resolve the couple difficulties. Relationship counselling can treat a range of problems including intimacy difficulties, stress in the relationship, infidelity or loss of a partner.

Our highly experienced couples psychotherapists work from a position of the problem being the problem not people being the problem.

Our psychotherapists work with both individual and relationship therapy on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.
