We know that ANXIETY is no laughing matter.
We know the toll it takes on you emotionally and physically.
We know that feeling safe helps you build a rapport with us.
We know that home visits work.
We know that you want to feel secure in your decision to choose us.
We have found that the results are improved considerably by our clients comfort.
Where are you most comfortable?
For most of our clients it is in their own home.
Surrounded by familiar objects, sitting in their favourite chair and snuggled up in their favourite blanket they reach a state of relaxation quickly which enhances their therapeutic experience.
Feeling safe, feeling comfortable enables you to focus fully on the process.
Also allows you to achieve your goals sooner rather than later.
We made this discovery quite by accident.
We were asked to do a home visit for a client whose anxiety had escalated to the point of not being able to leave home.
The rest as they say is history.
Within several visits we were no longer needed because the client wasn't home enough to fit us in!
The client returned to work, returned to her family and friends participating in life in a way they hadn't for years.
If home visits don't suit you that is fine we also take appointments in the traditional setting.
When we feel overwhelmed by an issue we can become convinced that it will take forever to resolve or it will be impossible to overcome.
We may have tried before and didn't achieve the results we were looking for.
We might have relapsed so concluded that there is no point in trying again.
We can feel isolated because we think no one will understand our suffering.

What we offer in the couples therapy arena is we believe quite unique.
We are a couple offering couples therapy.
We decided to go this way because we observed that three is an uncomfortable number for human beings.
When you have two people in a room working with a third person particularly when there has been continuing challenges in the communication department between two of the people; it is natural that one of the two (who have tension between them) is going to feel more connected/understood/believed by the third person.
Usually it is the person who didn't really want to be in the room in the first place.
That belief whether it is true or not causes that person to withdraw from the process proclaiming "what's the point?"
Men when in the room with their female partner and a female therapist can assume that there is an immediate gender bias against them. This belief is not terribly helpful and can lead to defensiveness and lack of contribution to the process.
Without a great deal of effort at all we have already removed two potential roadblocks to the possibility of couples therapy working for you.
Often when life gets really busy and the stresses build up our primary relationship is the one that will be put on the back burner while we attend to every thing else that is demanding our attention. We can only neglect each other for so long before the communication starts to break down.
The great news is that with a little time and commitment it is possible to make the relationship better than ever.
We often find two people sharing the same house are feeling estranged yet they both are wishing for the same things.
Loving each other but feeling disconnected.
It is possible to find your way back to each other.
