Psychotherapy is for individuals seeking fundamental change. It involves an analysis of the individual and the experiences that caused them to be the way that they are. This may involve an analysis of painful and unresolved issues so as to free the individual from them and allow them to live more fully in the present.
Through therapy, the individual can find a profound sense of renewal and discover who they really are.

The centre provides children with counselling opportunities that involve play therapy and art therapy. Therapy involving children is a distinct discipline that differs significantly from that of adult clients.
The relationship between a child under the age of 17 and the therapist is co-ordinated by the parent. However, parents are not always part of the therapeutic process itself.
An adolescent at the age of 17 years of age enters into a personal contract with their therapist and the degree of parental involvement is largely up to the child to determine. The therapeutic approach is tailor made to the needs of each child. Considerations are made to the child’s age, developmental stage, intellectual and emotional maturity.
The circumstances which encompass the daily experiences of the child are carefully considered. These issues often involve changes to the family unit and/or trauma. Common issues include those of divorce, adoption, blended families, new siblings, recent deaths or immigration.
