Psychological Support Services
Relationships

Relationship problems can be the biggest form of stress for some people. Rosalind is an experienced relationship counsellor who works with couples to understand the problems and simplifies what is happening.

Individuals

Therapy involves talking about your feelings, thoughts, and behaviours and the things that are troubling you.

Groups

Some problems are very successfully treated in small therapeutic groups. Many people find the group setting makes them feel more confident, it reaffirms that people are not as ‘neurotic’ or alone as they might feel when experiencing life’s difficulties.

Perinatal Depression

These days, we typically refer to the term perinatal depression rather than ‘postnatal’, as many mothers find themselves struggling in the antenatal period, or the period before the baby is born. Difficulties coping can occur after the baby is born, or throughout the entire period.

Maximising Health

Rosalind has worked for many years in major teaching hospitals and is trusted by many GPs, medical and surgical specialists to help people modify their health choices, behaviours and habits.

Mediation
