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.
Our Counselling and Psychotherapy Service provides a wide range of therapeutic interventions that are designed to help you address those issues that are impacting on your mental health and emotional wellbeing.

Systemic Family Practice
Explore difficulties as a family
Practitioners working with a child or young person may identify family work would be beneficial. A family will be offered Systemic Family Therapy to complement the individual work.
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.
