Our passion and commitment

Our professional team is passionate to provide excellent client care and quality service and to respect your culture, beliefs, background and life journey. We seek to be warm and non-judgemental, to listen well and provide direction, and empower you to make changes and reach your goals.

Our therapists are highly trained to provide a safe place emotionally for you. Counselling proceeds at a pace and depth that is best for you. There will be clear processes and boundaries of confidentiality.

We will explain everything that happens and seek your consent for all steps in your work. We will work with you to set an agreed direction and goals. In summary, we will be sensitive and alert to what will be most healing for you.
