We are very happy to be open and able to see clients in person once again at the centre. We would like to reassure you that we have taken great care to consider how to do this while keeping everyone’s safety as the main priority.
We have protocols in place which your therapist will explain in advance so that we always maintain at least 2 metres distance and all surfaces and handles are wiped in between each and every client visit.
Perhaps most importantly is our investment in hospital grade air purifiers for each room. These HEPA13 filters change the air in each room every 3-4 minutes making ventilation many times more efficient than open windows. The machines are hardly audible yet powerful enough to kill 99.97% of bacteria and viruses (not to mention pollution and pollen making the clean air in our rooms a haven for allergy sufferers). If perhaps you’d like to read more, this article by vox explains in more detail, the benefits of good quality air purifiers.

About Psychotherapy & Counselling
Psychotherapy offers a safe, confidential space where you can have time to reflect on the situations you have come to find yourself in. You may decide to attend psychotherapy for many reasons. Perhaps you have just not been feeling yourself, you may have problems with achieving your goals or be struggling with issues related to your sexuality. You may have a difficult decision to make, feel blocked or find it difficult to manage relationships. Psychotherapy offers a space to explore all kinds of feelings, including feelings of confusion, anxiety, depression, pointlessness, loss of self worth, anger and bereavement. There are reasons why we feel as we do, and in psychotherapy we can explore these meanings and make some sense of them. On a simple level, psychotherapy is a conversation, a joint enquiry. Often it is only through talking to another person that we can come to know what it is that we really think or feel.
By providing a safe, non-judgemental and empathic environment, a psychotherapeutic relationship can allow our shamed, disconnected, or wounded parts to be met and accepted, and even find their own voice. Our difficulties, which can sometimes limit our sense of freedom and wellbeing, arise from challenging or painful life experiences. These can often stay with us into our adult lives. Psychotherapy offers the potential for healing by working to uncover and validate the authentic Self. In this endeavour it is a truly creative undertaking.
We meet with all of our therapists before inviting them to join the centre, to make sure that we are a good fit for each other and that they meet the level of training and expertise that we are proud to provide for our clients.
