What is Psychotherapy?


Clinical Psychotherapy is a professional, confidential & non judgemental place for people to explore their own struggles and invest in their emotional and psychological wellbeing. 
Sessions are a safe place where people can he heard, understood, resourced and apply a wide range of strategies to areas such as their personal life, relationships, family, social & work life.

Everybody experiences hardship at various times in their life. Often people will try to solve these hardships by themselves or with family & friends. If these efforts have not worked, then people usually seek out a professional therapist for a period of time. People can book an initial session and bring in a range of issues they would like addressed without needing a referral from a doctor. Clinical Psychotherapy offers people a range of resources & strategies for life's challenges that are not medicalised or diagnosed. 

COVID NOTICE: You can still book face to face or online sessions. Check in with the QR Code, please sanitise hands and wearing a mask is mandatory when in the clinic.

“Our main task is to fulfill our deep innate potential, much as the acorn contains the potential to become the oak, the caterpillar to become the butterfly”
