A HAPPIER, HEALTHIER YOU
At Authentic Psychology, we implement methods that aim to increase self-awareness to recognise strengths, define values, and build skills to enable a person to live a life that reflects who they are and what is most important to them.
Our services are personalized to meet the needs of each person whether they come from a background of trauma, want to learn skills that will enhance the quality of their life, or just need help navigating through life's complexities.
WE WORK WITH CHILDREN 12+ & ADOLESCENTS
"The greatest gifts you can give your children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence." Denis Waitley
We work with children (aged 12 and above) and adolescents to help them develop healthy social skills, manage their emotions, build self-confidence and improve their self-esteem.
A strong personality can be a strength and can be the basis of natural leadership tendencies. However, children with strong wills can be challenging. We work with parents and their strong willed children to develop effective parenting skills and behaviour management plans to enable their child to fit in and thrive.
“To be fully seen by somebody and be loved anyhow - this is a human offering that can border on miraculous." Elizabeth Gilbert
Relationship counselling can occur with an individual or two or more people. The focus is on understanding patterns of interactions that occur within relationships.
The work in therapy may include but is not limited to the following:
Learn skills to really listen so that you can understand the perspective of others without losing your own.
Learn to identify and communicate your needs.
Develop ways of interacting that are respectful of your own needs while taking into consideration the needs of others.
Build healthy, respectful, accepting relationships.
