Who is the best match for me?

Ever tried to find a particular jigsaw piece to fill a gap in a puzzle? You searched and tried until you found the piece that just ‘clicked in’. We take the same approach. At your first enquiry, we get to know you and your issues, and find the right match or best fit.

What is the difference between psychologists and counsellors? Our psychologists and social worker mostly work with mental health issues, and child, adolescent and family therapy. They mostly work short term.

Our registered counsellors work mostly with relationship counselling, personal issues, mental health, addictions, trauma and abuse. They work short or long term depending on the issues.
