Parent-child relationship difficulties

Understanding the relationship between a parent and a child is extremely complex and considered one of the most enduring and significant relationships in one’s life.

Self Harming

Self-harm is a way of expressing and dealing with deep distress and emotional pain. It includes anything you do to intentionally injure yourself.

Depression and mood issues

While we all feel sad, moody or low from time to time, some people experience these feelings intensely, for long periods of time (weeks, months or even years) and sometimes without any apparent reason.

Behavioural Problems

All young children can be naughty, defiant and impulsive from time to time, which is perfectly normal. However, some children have extremely difficult and challenging behaviours that are outside the norm for their age.


Bullying happens when a person or a group of people repeatedly and intentionally use words or actions to cause distress and harm to another person’s wellbeing.

Anxiety Disorders

Anxiety, worry, and stress are typically a normal part of everyday life. Anxiety is an important and sometimes necessary warning signal alerting us to a dangerous or difficult situation.


Emotional and psychological trauma is the result of extraordinarily stressful events that shatter your sense of security, leaving you feeling helpless in what seems like a dangerous world.
