Our approach is one of health rather than pathology. We believe all people deep down want to heal and are capable of achieving wholeness. We take a path of gentleness to develop positive connections and promote cooperation.
Our focus is on every individual, couple or family and is not delivered in group therapy settings. During our programs couples and families remain together and are coached in the skills they need to stay together.
