Counselling is a therapeutic collaboration between a qualified counsellor and client. The aim is to support you in developing a better self-understanding and finding a resolution to your identified concerns. Counsellors engage in empathy and deep listening skills to establish a positive working relationship and safe space for clients. Therapy involves formulating a strengths-based treatment plan to assist the client to achieve their goals and objectives in therapy. Within this context, clients may develop effective ways of dealing with mental health issues or negative life patterns, while feeling respected and accepted without judgment.
Relationship or couples counselling helps partners improve their relationship and create a heightened sense of understanding and unity. Therapy includes conflict resolution, strengthening healthy communication, and increasing intimacy, and affection. Identifying and removing barriers that create a feeling of mistrust, resentment and stagnancy. Facing difficult situations together to rebuild the bonds of trust, respect and love.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
Acceptance and commitment therapy is a form of psychotherapy. It is an empirically based psychological intervention that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies along with commitment and behaviour-change strategies to increase psychological flexibility. It is a mindfulness- based approach that emphasises acceptance to deal with negative thoughts, feelings, symptoms, or circumstances. It also encourages increased commitment to healthy, constructive activities that uphold your values or goals.
Positive Psychology is a branch of psychology focused on the character strengths and behaviours that allow individuals to build a life of meaning and purpose—to move beyond stagnation or just surviving to flourishing.
Theorists and researchers in the field have sought to identify the elements of a good life. Therapy involves helping the client build a heathy relationship with themselves and other by using methods which foster skills for improving self mastery and and well-being. It encompasses a wide rage of topics including; emotional intelligence, mindfulness, strengths and resilience, self-compassion and acceptance, meaning and values living and motivation and goal achievement.
Children and Adolescence

Time Line Therapy™
Time Line Therapy® techniques are a unique and unmatched method for creating powerful change in therapy, business, and education. Time Line Therapy® utilises a person’s own internal “Time Line” to work with their unconscious minds in a variety of ways; including, healing emotional traumas and eradicating unwanted thoughts, emotions and behaviours.
Time Line Therapy® has been so successful in its results that it has been utilized since 1986 by thousands of people including psychiatrists, psychologists, marriage and family counsellors, social workers, life and business coaches, and even athletic coaches. Your “Time Line” is how you unconsciously store your memories or how you unconsciously know the difference between a memory from the past and a projection of the future.
Powerful change occurs both consciously and unconsciously. The Time Line Therapy® techniques allow you to work at the unconscious level and release the effects of past negative experiences and change “inappropriate” programming in minutes rather than days, months or years.
Hypnosis describes the process of guiding someone into a trance — a deep state of relaxation where the client is disburdened of the conscious mind’s control and therefore the subconscious mind (including memories, beliefs, coping strategies and desires) can be revealed and/or witnessed without judgement. Hypnotherapy is the application of hypnosis to support the overcoming of mental and physical conditions and blockages, through releasing or transforming aspects of the unconscious apparatus which no longer serve the client.
Psychotherapy is a process of engagement between therapist and clients for the purpose of healing and/or transformation. Clients’ suffering is addressed through the co-created therapeutic relationship and explored through any of emotional, physical, relational, existential, spiritual and/or behavioural terrains. Through deep listening and empathic, holistic exploration, psychotherapists support clients in working through conscious and unconscious factors that are affecting clients’ lives and wellbeing.
A key element of psychotherapy is the relationship between the psychotherapist and the client. This provides a safe container for the client to experience their feelings, as well as functioning as a relational encounter which supports clients’ growing awareness’s of patterns playing out in their lives.
Through the psychotherapeutic relationship, clients may also access important insights and new ways of being in the world which flow from the newfound awareness, and sense of freedom around feelings previously too difficult to be with.
Somatic approaches are used to engage the relationship between mind and body. Soma is the Greek word meaning “the living body”, understanding the physiological symptoms of trauma experienced within the body. Treatment is a body-orientation approach combining psychotherapy with physical functioning, guided by the principles of Polyvagal theory to release emotional pain, enhance self-awareness, and improve emotional regulation.
Equine Assisted Psychotherapy
Equine assisted psychotherapy incorporates horses into the therapeutic process. Horses can be used in counselling with individuals of all ages, including with families and in a group setting. As clients learn to interact with the horse and try new things, they are being asked to step out of their comfort zone with the help and support of the therapist and the horse. Clients can then process their experience, learning to manage their fears and challenges, as well as learning skills in self-reflection, emotional regulation, empathy and attuning to self and the horse during therapy. The focus is on presence, attention, mindfulness, boundaries, social cues, and somatic experiences aimed at building a greater understanding of oneself through their relationship to the horse.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) deals with neurology, language and habituated embodied patterns and how they interact with one another, with particular attention to the relationships between successful behaviour patterns and the thoughts that underlay them. Engaging various tools and techniques, the practitioner supports the client in re-programming their neurology, language and actions in order to be more empowered and effective in the world.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming Coaching supports clients in accessing their dormant potential and in achieving more out of life. It is designed to empower clients by unlocking focus, creativity, strength and accountability so that they may achieve consistent results in the most valuable areas of their lives. Practitioners support clients in addressing personal goals, breaking addictive habits and behaviours, improving business clarity, performance and success, transforming relationships and strengthening connection with others.
