Why come and see us?
When life gets tough and options seem limited, wellbeing and relationships can suffer. Many of us feel lacking in relational and communication skills when confronted with all the upheavals of life. These might include marriage strife, conflict with children, relatives and friends, work issues, mental health concerns like depression and anxiety, sexual concerns, alcohol and other drugs, intimacy worries, anger management or just orienting ourselves towards the future.

Invest in your well-being and learn new strategies to work through conflict, manage stress and anxiety, process anger and other intense feelings and create a better and more harmonious life. You may not want to impose on family and friends, but you don’t have to do it alone.
How does it work?
In our non-medicalised approach, we do not pathologise your life. No Medicare or fund rebates, but no reports to insurance companies or doctors. No referrals required and sessions are usually available promptly.

Others may find that longer-term psychotherapy, with its interest in the unconscious and dreams, to be a good way to deal with seemingly intractable and recurring issues of life. End Groundhog Day! With couples and family therapy a few longer (90 minutes) and more widely spaced sessions allow us to hear all sides of the situation and create useable strategies, and then assess and refine them.
