What We Help With


Anxiety is a natural response to stress or perceived danger, characterized by feelings of worry, nervousness, or fear. It can manifest as physical symptoms such as increased heart rate, sweating, and restlessness. While occasional anxiety is a normal part of life, excessive or chronic anxiety can interfere with daily activities and well-being. It often involves persistent, excessive worry about various aspects of life, such as health, work, or relationships, and can lead to avoidance behaviours, difficulty concentrating and an impairment in daily life. Anxiety is one of the most common mental health conditions and can be effectively managed with various therapeutic approaches. 


Trauma is a deeply distressing or disturbing experience that overwhelms an individual's ability to cope, leading to emotional, psychological, and often physical responses. It can result from events such as accidents, natural disasters, violence, or prolonged abuse. Trauma can affect a person's sense of safety, self, and the world around them, leading to symptoms like flashbacks, anxiety, depression, and hypervigilance. The impact of trauma can be immediate or delayed, and it varies from person to person. Effective trauma treatment often includes therapies such as somatic therapy, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), and supportive counselling to help individuals process their experiences and regain a sense of control, safety and well-being.

Life Transitions

Life transitions refer to significant changes in an individual's life that may alter their usual routines, relationships, roles, or environments. These transitions can be both planned and unplanned, ranging from positive events like moving to a new city, starting a new job, or getting married, to more challenging experiences such as illness, divorce, or the death of a loved one. Navigating life transitions often involves adapting to new circumstances, adjusting one's expectations and goals, and learning to cope with the emotions that arise during periods of change. While some transitions can be exciting and empowering, others may bring feelings of uncertainty, stress, or loss. Seeking support from friends, family, or a therapist can help individuals manage these transitions effectively and find new sources of meaning and fulfillment in their lives.

Relationship with Self
& Others

Relationships are the connections that individuals form with others, ranging from familial bonds to friendships and romantic partnerships. They are built on mutual trust, respect, and communication, and play a fundamental role in shaping our social and emotional well-being. Healthy relationships provide support, companionship, and a sense of belonging, contributing to our happiness and overall quality of life. However, relationships can also be complex and challenging. They require effort and understanding from both parties to navigate differences, resolve conflicts, and maintain a sense of intimacy and connection. Relationship issues such as misunderstandings, communication breakdowns, and disagreements are common and normal parts of any relationship. Learning effective communication skills, empathy, and compromise can help individuals build and sustain healthy, fulfilling relationships throughout their lives. Seeking support through counselling can help individuals to repair, improve or sustain healthy, fulfilling relationships. Equally important is the relationship with oneself, involving self-awareness, self-acceptance, and self-care. A healthy relationship with the self fosters confidence and emotional stability, which supports positive relationships with others. Counselling can help individuals improve communication skills, emotional regulation and empathy, enhancing relationships with others and themselves.


Depression is a common and serious mood disorder that negatively affects how a person feels, thinks, and handles daily activities such as eating, sleeping, or working. It is characterized by persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and a loss of interest in activities that were once enjoyable. Other symptoms include changes in appetite or weight, difficulty concentrating and feelings of worthlessness or guilt. Depression can be triggered by a combination of genetic, biological, environmental, and psychological factors. It can vary in severity from mild to severe and can interfere significantly with a person's ability to function in daily life. Counselling can be helpful in regaining your self of self and improve your quality of life. 


Grief is the natural response to loss, particularly the death of someone or something significant in our lives. It encompasses a range of emotions such as sadness, anger, guilt, and yearning. These emotions can come in waves and vary in intensity over time. Grief is a deeply personal experience, affecting each person differently based on their relationship with what or who was lost. During grief, individuals may experience physical symptoms like fatigue, changes in appetite, or trouble sleeping. They might also feel a sense of disbelief or numbness, as well as periods of intense emotional pain. The grieving process is not linear and can be influenced by cultural, spiritual, and personal beliefs. While grief can be overwhelming, it is a necessary process that allows individuals to come to terms with their loss and adjust to a new reality. Seeking support from loved ones, community, or a therapist can provide comfort and help navigate the grieving process. 

How We Help


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a powerful, evidence-based psychotherapy method designed to help individuals heal from trauma and distressing life experiences. Unlike traditional talk therapy, EMDR utilizes bilateral stimulation, such as guided eye movements, to process and reframe negative memories and emotions. This approach can be particularly effective for those suffering from PTSD, anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues. By targeting the root causes of psychological distress, EMDR enables clients to achieve lasting relief and improved emotional well-being.

Somatic Therapy

Somatic Therapy is a holistic approach to healing that emphasizes the profound connection between the mind and body. By focusing on physical sensations and bodily experiences, this therapy helps individuals process and release trauma, stress, and emotional pain stored in the body. Techniques may include breathwork, mindfulness, and movement all aimed at enhancing bodily awareness and promoting emotional regulation. Somatic Therapy is particularly effective for those struggling with trauma, anxiety, depression, fostering a deeper sense of self-awareness, resilience, and overall well-being.

Somatic Attachment

Somatic Attachment Therapy is an integrative approach that combines principles of somatic (body-centered) therapy with attachment theory to address deep-seated emotional and relational issues. This therapy focuses on the connection between mind and body, helping clients become more aware of physical sensations and emotional responses that are often rooted in early attachment experiences. By fostering a safe and supportive therapeutic relationship, Somatic Attachment Therapy aims to heal attachment wounds, enhance emotional regulation, and promote secure, healthy relationships. This approach is particularly beneficial for individuals dealing with trauma, anxiety, depression, and relationship difficulties.

Cognitive Behavioural
Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a widely recognized, evidence-based approach to psychotherapy that focuses on identifying and challenging negative thought patterns and behaviors. By helping individuals develop healthier thinking and coping strategies, CBT is effective in treating a range of mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, PTSD, and phobias. This structured, goal-oriented therapy empowers clients to make positive changes in their lives, enhance emotional regulation, and build resilience. Through CBT, individuals can achieve lasting improvements in their mental well-being and overall quality of life.

Structural Family

Structural Family Therapy is a therapeutic approach developed by Salvador Minuchin that focuses on the structure and organization of the family unit. This method views problems as stemming from dysfunctional family patterns and hierarchies. Structural Family Therapy aims to restructure the family system by clarifying boundaries, realigning roles, and improving communication among family members. By identifying and addressing the underlying systemic issues, this therapy helps families develop healthier interactions and relationships. It is particularly effective for treating issues such as family conflicts, parenting difficulties, and behavioral problems in children and adolescents. Through Structural Family Therapy, families can strengthen their connections, enhance their resilience, and create a more supportive and harmonious family environment.

Play Therapy

Play Therapy is a therapeutic approach specifically designed for children to express their feelings, thoughts, and experiences through play. This method leverages the natural way children communicate and learn about the world, using toys, games, and creative activities to help them process emotions and resolve conflicts. Play Therapy is particularly effective for addressing a wide range of childhood issues, including trauma, anxiety, behavioral problems, and social difficulties. By creating a safe and supportive environment, Play Therapy enables children to develop coping skills, improve emotional regulation, and enhance their overall psychological well-being.
