CREATIVE COUNSELLING FOR A LIFETIME OF SOLUTIONS.
We believe in building a relationship with our youngest clients by relating to them on their level. That is why we focus on a branch of psychology know as expressive therapies where children use sand tray, art and play therapy,including synergetic play therapy as a means of communicating. This allows your child to feel natural and at ease in the therapeutic environment, putting them in a better position to overcome emotional problems, adapt to changing circumstances and to thrive.
Adolescence is a particularly difficult time in the life cycle. Many parents seek the help of a therapist for reasons related to acting out, body image disorders, challenging authority and depression or anxiety. During this time teens can become preoccupied with their internal worlds and believe the feelings they are experiencing are unique to them. We can provide counselling that attunes to these unique needs and effectively helps teenage children make a smoother transition into young adulthood.
Whether you are 75 or 25. Just getting started or far along the way, our transparent, collaborative and creative approach to therapy will provide you with the insights and tools you are looking for. We believe in working with you to define mututally agreed upon goals of therapy and to determine the kind of therapy that will best suit your unique needs. The first step in any relationship is to make a connection. Contact us to book a consultation.
Children should be allowed to love both parents and feel loved by both parents to ensure happy well adjusted lives. It is of the utmost importance for both parents to encourage a relationship between the children and the other parent. Standing together as parents is important in a marriage. It is even more important in cases of divorce, separation or turmoil and is a sign of great parenting.
That is why we support Co-operative shared parenting which refers to a post separation parenting arrangement that attempts to approximate the parent-child relationships in the original two parent home. In this arrangement both parents not only have equal rights with respect to their children's welfare and upbringing, but also active responsibilities within the daily routines of their children's care and development. We believe that Co-operative shared parenting can be made possible not only when parents have accepted the termination of their marital relationship, but can keep separate the issues of their previous marital conflict from their continued parental responsibilities.
