Our clinical team employs time-tested techniques like cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and mindfulness-based cognitive behavioural therapy (MCBT) to help you understand the source of your anxiety, change your thinking patterns and learn how to effectively manage your condition. and neuro-linguistic programming (NLP)
We also use cutting-edge technologies such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to effectively treat anxiety without the use of medication.

- Mindfulness meditation
- Massage therapy
- Art therapy
These accomplish a few things: Firstly, they help you to de-stress, feel well, focus and get into a receptive frame of mind that benefits your counselling work.
