Individual Therapy

1:1 Therapy for 11-25-year-olds

Talking to a trained person on your own, therapists are people who really listen. You can share your problems with our therapists and they will help you make sense of what’s going on. They will also give you the time and space to express what it really feels like.

Systemic Family Practice

Explore difficulties as a family

Systemic Family Practice (SFP) is a way of talking together that supports family members to explore difficult thoughts and feelings safely; to understand each other’s experiences and views and be more able to help each other. We do not take sides or blame, but support you to find your own solutions, while respecting a family’s culture, family member’s ages, needs and preferences.
