As a couple we can teach you and guide you to have meaningful discussions that go somewhere. You’re going to learn how to have conflicts whilst still showing respect. We can explain how to use our approaches to deepen your connection. With a bit practise it’s possibly to rekindle a spark that’s flickering. Sometimes it’s a challenge to overcome a major crisis but it’s not impossible. We’ve helped teach couple’s to recover from affairs and addictions. That doesn’t happen overnight but we will help you to work towards being the best that you can be. We show you how to accept that we don’t all see things the same way. We can help you to learn ways to turn towards one another and think positively about each other’s differences.
We do this by having a really good discussion about how you came to the point of needing some relationship support. We use the approaches that are based on forty years of research and are highly interactive. We coach and support your relationship and can help you trust and hope again.
We use Gottman Therapy https://www.gottman.com/
I want you to feel safe and able to talk with us honestly while we explore your experience. When you’re questioning what your sexuality means to you, you probably don’t want to have to justify it to other people. Sometimes family and friends aren’t accepting and supportive and we are both. I can help you explore what your identity, friendships, social place and relationships could look like.
I honour an individual’s right to be who they are and can help you to process the realities of your life now and in the future. If you’re feeling really depressed or anxious we can show you how to manage those feelings and how to develop ways to deal with intense experiences or hopelessness or rejection.
We help you to manage the prospect of coming out and how to develop ways to cope with all the responses that you may experience. We appreciate the challenges that may face young people or more mature people coming out. We know that for some people this transitional period isn’t as smooth and doesn’t involve the level of acceptance that you might crave. We’re here to offer understanding, a sounding board, negotiation skills and supports. We show you skills of negotiation and acceptance. Sometimes transformation from wanting a life that reflects your true self and living that life that can be somewhat challenging and involve big changes to how you interact with others. The adjustment takes time and we offer support and advice while you explore your experiences.
PTSD, Complex PTSD, Domestic Violence, Single Incident
Trauma work is challenging. It’s daunting to learn new skills in how you approach the impact that trauma has had on your life. When you know you’re ready to make changes we can teach you the skills and offer the option of body healing with natural medicine, simultaneously. We will walk with you for as long as it takes to feel safe and comfortable with the past or a single distressing event in your life.
We use psychotherapeutic and psychological therapies with health science to allow you to access a holistic approach. This work will help you to feel that you can overcome the legacy of pain and improve daily life and health. While we cannot erase the past, we can master our responses now and in the future. We care and will gently guide you to find the safest and healthiest future.
Jani accepts Mental Health Care Plans, approved Workcover clients, and some EAPs.
Mental Health, Depression, Anxiety, Sleep Problems, Anger Management, Life Changes
We teach skills that work towards improving mood, reducing anxiety, adjusting to changes, coping with those around us, managing mood whilst at home and at work, how to negotiate interactions with difficult people and how to manage your own reactions when you are the difficult people.
We’re passionate about using meditation. We offer a weekly session on Mondays at 6pm. Please call and reserve your place. We use lots of different styles and explore what the practice of meditation means and how it changes our lives.
