How can we support you?

Different types of therapy to support your healing journey 

Individual 

Conjoint 

INDIVIDUAL COUNSELLING 

Counselling provides space for you to process and share your story with a skilled therapist. Using a strength based and trauma informed approach, we commit to creating a comfortable and safe space for individuals seeking support. Counselling provides an opportunity for clients to discover their inherent strength and wisdom during times of stress. Through conversation and technique clients are able to gain insight and perspective into their situation and behaviour.

CONJOINT COUNSELLING

Oftentimes other relationships in the family system may impact individual work in counselling. A conjoint session can be beneficial to individual growth by providing mediation to not only address relationship challenges, but also discuss solutions. Communication techniques, boundary work, and gaining insights to individual experiences in the family system can profoundly change the dynamic of relationships.
