Therapeutic Principles

At the centre of the therapeutic approach lies the belief that the symptoms of distress Children and Adolescents experience take many forms. Counselling and Psychotherapy enables the understanding of these symptoms, and facilitates recovery from their causes.

An Informed Understanding

Prior to any treatment recommendation, a clinical assessment is conducted in order to identify the nature of the difficulties and suitability for treatment. A recommendation for an alternative approach or referral to another network clinician will be made if appropriate.
