Therapy for adults, adolescents, children and their families

The child and adolescent years come with unique developmental changes and challenges that can be tricky for kids and their parents or primary caregivers to navigate. It is a critical time of development that impacts self-esteem, relationships with others, academic success, and the health and well-being of the adults they will become.  

In our work, we draw upon the latest research and thinking in developmental psychology, attachment theory and family systems theory to make sense of their emotional, behavioural and relational struggles.  Together we will make a roadmap of how therapy will meet your needs and create opportunities for positive development. We are passionate about helping young people thrive and finding ways to support and strengthen relationships within the family system.

Adults

There are many changes and challenges to be met as a person moves into adulthood. It may be the first time someone experiences stress or has increased stress due to the demands of daily life. It is the time when most of us encounter death for the first time, move out of home, marriage, divorce, parenthood, second families, career changes, face declining health, retirement and so on.


Living through challenging times impacts our health and wellbeing, and often leaves us feeling helpless and overwhelmed by feelings, uncertain about next steps, out of control or powerless to act. Whilst distress and adversity in life is unavoidable, reaching out to a therapist can help improve coping in turbulent times, clarify your needs when life feels turned upside down, ease the transition to life-changing events and provide a haven in times of hardship and tragedy.
