Emotionally focused couples therapy.

Is an intervention based on scientific study of adult love and bonding processes in couples, is designed to address distress in the intimate relationships of adults.

Strategies from emotionally focused therapy can also be used in family therapy to help family members connect and improve emotional attachment.

Couples seeking counselling to improve their relationship may find this method a beneficial approach, as it can help people better understand both their own emotional responses and those of significant people in their lives.

Systemic Family Therapy

Family therapy sessions help people in close relationship, whether in families, couples or other relationship arrangements help each other.

It enables people to express and explore difficult thoughts and emotions safely, to understand each other’s experiences and views, appreciate each other’s needs, build on strengths and make useful changes in their relationships and their lives.

In family therapy, the aim is not to take sides, blame, judge or provide simple answers. The aim is to work together with the family to find shared understandings and exploring ways forward that work for them.

Counselling for Young People 

Many young people today face a number of challenges including depression, stress-related conditions, low-self esteem, exam pressure, social media pressure, drug and alcohol abuse, eating disorders and relational difficulties.

Young people tell us that seeing a counsellor at the Waterloo Wellbeing Centre helps because we are independent from school and home life. Counselling gives young people a secure, confidential environment where they can express and understand their feelings, thoughts and emotions.
