Couples and Family Counselling

Even healthy relationships can experience challenges and conflict. Whether your relationship is having communication issues, increased conflict, experienced betrayal, or you are contemplating separating, couples counselling can help with;

  • Understand what is happening for you and increasing your self-awareness
  • Understanding the other person’s experience, feelings, thoughts and behaviours
  • Learning how your actions impact on your partner
  • Learn how to work together to achieve a more loving and harmonious relationship

Individual counselling provides you with a safe and supportive space for you to discuss any issues that may be causing you concern so you can explore more helpful ways of resolving problem/s and assist you in moving towards a state of overall well-being. Such areas of concern I can help with include;

  • Anxiety and/or depression
  • Grief and loss
  • Past or current trauma
  • Work/life balance
  • General life worries

Child and Adolescent Counselling

The teenage years present an entirely new set of issues as the adolescent brain is undergoing huge changes and growth. At the same time, their social and educational settings are expanding. The increased demands they find imposed on them can lead to stress and emotional reactions, which can lead to some difficult years that young people need support in navigating. Counselling can help with;

  • social anxiety
  • school issues
  • performance anxiety in relation to grades
  • social issues such as bullying
  • relationship issues
  • developing social identity
  • developing communication skills

Research has shown the benefits of animals in therapy

Animal-assisted therapy can significantly reduce pain, anxiety, depression and fatigue in people with a range of health problems:

  • Children and adults experiencing stress, trauma or grief/loss
  • Veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder
  • People with anxiety and depression
  • People with dementia

In pet therapy, the animal is trained for the purpose of guided interactions with people. Pet therapy is also known as animal-assisted therapy or animal-assisted activities. The difference is Animal Assisted Therapy is a more formalised approach to pet therapy, where the animal helps participants reach set goals, they are available for the participant to pet and cuddle as they feel the need and provide comfort and assurance during times of distress in session. Animal Assisted Activities is a lot more casual where the animal essentially plays with people for comfort, this is usually more effective for children experiencing stress and anxiety in order to help them relax and feel more comfortable to open up about the issues causing them upset and distress.

Currently, Archie (pictured) is in his early training. Keep an eye on this page or sign up to our newsletter for regular updates on his training and graduation. This will be when appointments for animal assisted therapy and animal assisted activities will become available.
