Our Therapy service was established in response to the growing demand for professional therapy services here in Northern Ireland.

Increasingly people are seeing the benefit of accessing therapy as early as possible, in the life cycle as well as in the life crisis they are experiencing.

We firmly belive that therapy does not need to be all hard work, it can also be playful and creative and Norma brings this to all of her work ensuring that working with groups and individuals is energising, creative and joyful while addressing often difficult and painful issues. 

She combines Gestalt and Person Centred counselling with her Play Therapy to bring a truly creative and eclectic approach to therapy. 

Talk therapy is available but also supplemented with sand play, drumming, art and drama for the young and young at heart!

Creative techniques are often favoured ways of working with trauma, for which people can not find the words and can unlock deeply held unconscious feelings and bring new learning into awareness, adolescents often also prefer to work creatively and play is known to be childrens work, so Norma has the range of skills to work with all ages, no problem is too big or too small.
