Each case is approached as unique, with emphasis on the dignity and holistic well-being of the client. Individual therapy is offered for children, adolescents, and adults.

Relationship Therapy

The practice offers marital therapy, pre-marital counselling, and therapy for those who are interested in growing their relationship.

Relationships form an integral part of our daily lives. Therefore, experiencing difficulties in these relationships can impact negatively on our psychological well-being, our support system, and often our overall functioning. Couples can experience relationship difficulties for various reasons. It is important to build an understanding and awareness of the causes of the relationship strain by examining the interactional patterns and dynamics, which allows for change within the relationship.

The relationship counselling process is individualized for each couple, depending on their specific needs as determined in the first session. Some of the common goals/focus areas in relationship therapy include effective communication, healthy conflict management skills, and a strengthened emotional connection between partners.

Family Therapy

Family therapy offers families a way to develop or maintain a healthy, functional family, and is designed to address specific issues that are negatively affecting the health and functioning of the family. The goal of family therapy is to help family members improve communication, solve family problems, understand and manage special family situations (for example, death, serious physical or mental illness, or child and adolescent issues), and create a better functioning home environment.

In family therapy, the term “family” does not necessarily mean blood relatives. In this context, “family” is anyone who plays an important, long-term supportive role in a person’s life.
