Who We Work With

We work with adolescents and adults experiencing post-traumatic stress or other trauma-related mental health conditions. For many people, psychological trauma - including the experience of accidents, physical and sexual assault, disaster, war or other traumatic experiences – can result in persistent distress and relationship issues that get in the way of leading a fulfilling life.


Our Treatment Services

Some psychological therapies for trauma-related mental health conditions are known to be more effective than others. Our treatment services are based on certain therapies that have been shown in clinical studies to work for most people. For example, trauma-focussed therapy is a practical and effective approach to help individuals with posttraumatic stress disorder come to terms with past traumatic experiences and to improve their day-to-day functioning.

An Individualised Approach

Our goal is to work with each person and their supporters to relieve distress and improve coping in the shortest time possible. Length of treatment can vary based on individual issues and progress.

  • Typically, treatment is relatively short-term (10-15 sessions) - the need for additional sessions can be discussed on a case-by-case basis.
  • Weekly initial sessions are usually arranged to get an understanding of the person’s issues and to work towards improvements as soon as possible.
