Integrative Therapy

Integrative working brings together various therapeutic theories in an integrated way. It centres on the whole person - body, mind, feeling and spirit, using different techniques relevant to each person. It is based on the individual's innate ability to heal themselves, given the appropriate environment and supportive relationship to assist change.

Bereavement Counselling

Bereavement is a natural process and can be the most painful experience we have. Our loss or grief can have many aspects, disturbing our appetite and sleep, even causing panic attacks. Each of us has a different way of dealing with it; we may want to share it or deal with it alone. It takes differing amounts of time to move through the experience and feelings will differ for us all. We may have feelings we feel we shouldn't. It can be helpful talking through things at our own pace.

Trans-personal Psychotherapy

Trans-personal psychotherapy draws on wisdom and theory from both Eastern and Western traditions. It offers a positive, creative and life enriching attitude to the problems we face. Instead of pushing away our difficulties, it encourages us to welcome the challenge. The area of difficulty is seen as an opportunity to grow and discover more about our true and deeper self.

Couples and Relationship Counselling

Relationship therapy generally focuses on the space between the partners by listening to and understanding the issues that arise. It can help you to work out ways to improve communication and relating. It can also be a place where deep individual work takes place with the support and witness of the other, helping you to explore the difficulties you are having in the relationship dynamics and understand the roots of these difficulties within each person in the couple or group.

Sometimes couples decide to separate and it can then help to work through this process.

Sex Therapy

Sex therapy can help individuals and couples overcome specific sexual dysfunction, including non-consummation, erectile dysfunction (difficulty getting an erection and/or keeping an erection), premature ejaculation, low sexual desire, painful sex or lack of orgasm, and lack of sexual confidence. Clients can make progress once the initial embarrassment has lessened and they begin to talk frankly about their sex life. The work in the therapy room is based on talking, however you may be given homework to do in the privacy of your own home, either on your own or with your partner.
