Support from a full, diverse and qualified team

We work together, rather than alone, so we have a culture of cooperation and building up our skills to further enhance and support each other. We have a commitment to our clients to be well resourced and ready to do the work with you.

Some of our team have been in the workforce in other careers prior to joining the practice and we bring a wealth of experience from fields as diverse as medicine, legal, marketing, corporate work, schools and justice.

We are sought after for our excellent training and supervision of psychology interns, and for our continuous learning ethos so the least experienced are supported by the most experienced. Some of our team are in the last stages of Masters degrees and are interns at the Practice. Our clients benefit most from this interactive approach we have to therapy.

We help you thrive
during difficult times
