Counselling and Psychotherapy Services

If you are struggling to cope with difficult thoughts and emotions, you don’t need to do so alone.

Whatever you are experiencing is only a part of who you are. 

By working together, we can find a better way forward.


At Brighten, our priority is to offer a calm, collaborative and safe place, providing opportunity to explore and understand what is happening and identify any changes you would like to make. From here, we can seek effective strategies for working with feelings, thoughts or behaviours you’re finding unhelpful or distressing. 


Our approach is based on the belief that an integrated, flexible and creative approach offers the best way to meet your individualised needs. This can provide you with the skills and knowledge to deal with life’s ongoing challenges. We are guided by the pace at which you feel comfortable to explore and move forwards.


This integrated approach utilises a variety of methodologies, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Psychoeducation, Person Centred Therapy, Cognitive and Behavioural Therapy,                   Motivational Interviewing, and Trauma Focused and Strengths Based Therapies. 


Each person’s experiences and reason for seeking counselling will be different, although the primary reasons people seek support from Brighten Counselling include:


Grief & Loss

life changes

Relationship Difficulties


Traumatic or
Stressful Experiences
