Our Fees and Services
For many people, today’s life can be quite stressful and challenging. All of us experience the challenges we face in a number of different ways: making friends, struggles in relationships, difficulties adjusting to a new job or college, confusion in deciding on a career, or simply difficulties with managing your day to day life in a positive, efficient, and productive manner. Many people feel depressed, anxious, overwhelmed, or confused at some point in their life and need professional help so they can find a way to cope with feelings and issues that seem beyond their control.
If you have had previous experience with therapy and it was unsuccessful or if you have mixed results, you may feel ambivalent about seeing a new counsellor. It is important to realise that these feelings are very common and understandable, and we can address your concerns as we begin.
We provide a safe, non-judgmental, and supportive atmosphere that allows you to express yourself openly and freely. Our counsellor can help you work through difficult personal issues, such as low self-esteem, stress, anxiety and trauma. We also provide dating and relationship counselling, divorce and breakup counselling, and career counselling. We can help you identify negative thought patterns and repetitive behavioural patterns that cause you pain. Then we can help you to develop positive skills and coping strategies that empower you to grow and thrive.
Crisis counselling and management is intended to be brief. It is not the same as ongoing psychotherapy. Providing support for individuals, couples or families using interventions that focus on helping navigate the stress of an event by enhancing coping skills and resources as well as providing emotional and psychological support.
Crisis counselling involves careful assessment of the situation, planning, strategising and focusing on the client’s immediate situation, such as needs and safety. Clients who seek counselling for personal or professional crises may need a more robust form of support. This may include extra sessions or extended time until the situation is resolved, or they are feeling more resilient and better able to cope without the help of mental health professional.
Couples who feel wounded, betrayed, resentful, confused, misunderstood, hopeless, entrenched in patterns, lonely in the presence of the other, without physical contact and unsure of where to begin. Most couples suffer for years and wait too long before they reach out for marriage or couple counseling.
Couples counselling offers the opportunity to work through and discuss conflicts that are often avoided, minimised, withheld, suppressed and repressed, which has led to a buildup of anger and resentment. Couples therapy provides an opportunity to talk about conflicts and mutual hurts during the session making it easier to have important conversations outside the session.
Effective couples therapy can support motivated partners as they heal from trauma and navigate difficult transitions and challenges. In some cases, couples have suffered trauma in their relationships, such as betrayal or infidelity, a difficult loss or change in circumstances, or another type of crisis that creates relational stress. Many have been trying to manage long standing problems alone and are now in a state of hopelessness and despair.
Many individuals find that unresolved problems from the past begin to resurface in the context of their intimate relationships. Feeling triggered by their partner, what follows is a near-constant dance of each member of the couple acting out familiar dynamics from their own past. This dance is largely unconscious, but yields toxic, destructive effects on the relationships. An experienced Counsellor can help couples identify, understand and work through these challenging dynamis that are recreated in the here and now.

Executives, entrepreneurs, and members of a family office can often jeopardise personal relationships and the ability to invest in self-care due to their high functioning nature. As a result, we often see high levels of stress, anxiety, and the feeling of loneliness that can lead to depression.
