Psychological Therapy 

“YOU are not the Problem.
The Problem itself is the Problem.”

Having mental health problems is not Anyone’s fault.
It is the result of our life struggles and challenges.
We actually have not got (the right or sufficient) help all along. 
We do not realize we need help to overcome difficulties & accumulative pain inside us.
In our psychological therapy, you can COMPLETELY BE YOURSELF – good & bad; positive & negative, laugh, cry and shout…

Here you have a safe and confidential space for you to explore anything.
No Shame. No ‘Losing Face’. No Judgment.

You are listened to.
