Our team of experienced therapists can provide compassionate support and guidance throughout the healing process to help you find a way forward.
OCD can have a huge impact on people's lives, causing significant distress and disruption.

With a supportive and understanding counsellor, OCD therapy can provide individuals with the right tools to help them take back control of their life.
Sex & Intimacy Therapy
Sex and intimacy counselling can help individuals and couples identify and address issues that may be affecting their sexual relationship. In a safe and supportive environment, therapy can help individuals and couples improve communication, trust, and intimacy in their relationships. With the guidance of a knowledgeable counsellor, individuals and couples can learn to navigate their sexual issues and build a healthier, more fulfilling relationship.
Family counselling is an important part of maintaining healthy relationships within the family unit. It provides a safe and supportive environment to discuss issues and challenges families face, and helps to build strong communication, problem-solving and conflict resolution skills. Family counselling can help to improve relationships and create a positive and healthy home environment.
Grief & Loss Counselling
Grief and loss can be a difficult and overwhelming experience. Loss can come in many forms, such as the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship, or the loss of a job. Our grief and loss counselling services provide a safe and supportive environment for individuals to process their loss and learn to cope with the grief that comes with it. Our counsellors can help you identify and work through the challenges and emotions associated with loss.
Couples counselling is an invaluable tool to help couples in all stages of their relationship. It can help improve communication, understanding and trust, and ultimately lead to a stronger, healthier relationship. With the support of a trained counsellor, couples can explore their feelings, learn new ways of relating to each other, and build a more fulfilling relationship.
Our practice specializes in birth trauma counselling, which is a unique and complex area of counselling. Birth trauma can impact parents deeply, leaving them feeling overwhelmed and isolated. Our experienced counsellors understand the unique needs of those affected by birth trauma and use evidence-based techniques to help them move towards healing and recovery.
Life Transitions Counselling
Life transitions can be difficult and overwhelming, and it is normal to feel overwhelmed or anxious when making big changes. Counselling can help you navigate these changes, from school, to new relationships, to parenthood, to a big move, to a career change and more. With the guidance of a counsellor, you can gain insight and understanding, build resilience, and ultimately make the most of the changes in your life.
