Counselling Types and Approaches
People seek therapy for many reasons, from coping with major life challenges or transitions, dealing with depression or anxiety, to simply desiring personal growth and greater self-knowledge and awareness.
Relationship therapy is a means of resolving problems and conflicts that couples have not been able to handle effectively on their own. It involves both partners sitting down with a trained therapist to discuss their thoughts and feelings in a constructive and productive manner.
Child and Adolescent Therapy
Children and adolescents experience stress, grief, depression and anxiety just as adults do, and face issues with school, bullying and with their families. Therapy can assist children and adolescents to reduce stress and distress, develop skills to cope with difficult situations and identify people in their life that can provide support, such as friends, teachers and grandparents.
Online therapy allows for therapy regardless of location and is an accessible option. Using your laptop, tablet or phone to connect with a therapist can provide a very authentic and helpful counselling experience.
