Our Areas of Specialisation
INDIVIDUAL THERAPY ACROSS THE LIFESPAN
Individual therapy involves one on one sessions with a psychologist focusing on your area of difficulty and therapeutic goals. Sessions lengths are usually 50 minutes and can last over a period of a few sessions, or involve long-term support. Get help to improve your quality of life and live the life you were destined for.
Occupational therapy enables people to participate in activities they find meaningful. Occupational therapists (OTs) help people and especially children to improve their ability to look after themselves – for example, eat, dress or complete personal hygiene tasks amongst many other things.
EQUINE ASSISTED PSYCHOTHERAPY (EAP) & EQUINE ASSISTED LEARNING (EAL)
Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) is a professional, innovative, and experiential approach to therapy. EAP supports clients of all ages in addressing mental health difficulties as well as emotional, cognitive, behavioural, relational and spiritual issues. Horses are the assistants, co-facilitators and teachers in this process.
RUBI PARENT TRAINING FOR DISRUPTIVE BEHAVIOURS
RUBI is an evidence-based treatment that is aimed to reduce troublesome and/or disruptive behaviours in children diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This program has been trialed in research studies with children and their parents and has been found to be successful – hence the term ‘evidence based’.
GOTTMAN'S METHOD COUPLES THERAPY
Couples therapy involves a safe environment to discuss, resolve and work through a range of issues which often present in relationships. As clinicians, we remain objective and facilitate the session whilst providing opportunity for each partner to be heard. Our couples' therapy is based on the Gottman Method Couples Therapy.
