We offer in-person, face-to-face sessions, held in private, confidential spaces at our office because it’s the method most of our clients prefer.
We know life gets busy. Counselling by telephone is convenient, and avoids having to plan extra travel time. It gives you the flexibility to talk to your counsellor in a setting that’s more familiar to you.
Our confidential and secure video-counselling sessions are a great option if you like the idea of face-to-face counseling, but can’t attend due to location, time, mobility or expense.
Many people find recording and reflecting on their thoughts, helps them gain greater insight into their personal growth and development. E-mail therapy provides a therapeutic journaling experience through a series of secure e-mail exchanges (at scheduled intervals) with your counsellor.
