About Individual Therapy

Individual therapy is an opportunity to talk to someone in a safe and confidential space about experiences or issues that may be impacting your mental health and emotional wellbeing. Our therapists are trained in different therapeutic modalities and will discuss with you, what support you would like and work alongside you to achieve your desired outcome.

A therapist will offer a safe space to support you and your family, to explore any challenging experiences and feelings, using a wide range of therapeutic interventions that are designed to help you address the issues that are impacting on your mental health and emotional wellbeing.
