Linda Henderson and Brenda McAuliffe are available 7 days a week which enables us to provide a flexible service. Located in Blackheath we provide a confidential, comfortable setting for our clients.
A low cost affordable service is provided for those unable to pay our normal fees. We offer 60 minute sessions.
The first session is for you to assess how you feel about the counselling process. You are not obliged to commit yourself to any session other than the one you have booked.
As experienced counsellors/psychotherapists we work with: one-to-one, couple counselling - young people and we also offer one-to-one supervision.
Some of the areas of therapy we work with:
- relationship problems
- couple counselling
- low self-esteem
- psychophysical disorders.
Holistic and Integrative: We work to heal the whole person, body, mind and spirit. Working at the client's pace we respect, contain and support their process.
Experienced in Jungian dreamwork and psychoanalysis
We work in psychological depth exploring complex, sensitive issues on physical, psychological and spiritual levels. Recovering and prizing the neglected aspects of ourselves buried in the unconscious, can be a rich and rewarding experience in our journey towards wholeness.
Our childhood conditioning can often result in negative behavioural patterns
These past patterns which are often unconscious can manifest in our everyday relationships causing conflict, isolation and separation. These psychological patterns or complexes form knots in our psyche. These knots can be unravelled and released through pyschoanalysis and dreamwork to allow our creative energy to flow.
Physical Symptoms of Stress - Working with the Alexander Technique
If negative patterns or complexes are not explored they will remain locked in the unconscious and can express themselves in neurosis or physical symptoms. Many of these physical symptoms can be released in the body through using Alexander Technique relaxation techniques. As qualified Alexander Technique teachers (MSTAT) this is our own unique contribution to stress management in counselling/psychotherapy.
Our therapeutic aim above all is to help you live out who you truly are.
