Counselling Team


Who is the best match for me?

Our goal is that you choose a psychologist or counsellor that best matches your needs.

Ever tried to find a match for a particular jigsaw piece? 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.

While there is huge overlap between the work psychologists and counsellors, our psychologists work mostly with mental health issues, and child, adolescent and family therapy. They mostly work short term.

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