Our Values

Our practice is based on warmth, optimism, curiosity, courage and connection. 

 

Our strength as counsellors is the ability to create safe and supporting environments in which clients feel cared and deeply listened to. In our work together you can expect a non-judgemental and encouraging atmosphere in which you can rediscover what already makes you great. We will also strive to discover what lies behind the behaviours of your child or partner as understanding is one of the keys to positive change.

Our wish for clients is to provide practical resources, empower them through their multiple challenges, and to help them build a deep sense of balance and connection.

Counselling Methods

We target our methods to you. However, most of our interventions are based on:

  • Child-centered Play and Expressive Therapy

  • Synergetic Play Therapy

  • Emotionally Focused Family Therapy

  • Attachment and Development Theories

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

  • Solution-Focused Therapy

  • Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)

  • Family Systems Theories
