Sometimes a problem is fleeting but more often a pattern of problems emerge that happen, again and again, leaving us frustrated, unfulfilled and disillusioned. Whether your problems have followed you around for years or have only begun to bug you more recently, we may be able to help. The therapists at Bayside Psychotherapy are qualified in a wide range of online and face-to-face counselling methods including Buddhist psychology, mindfulness therapy, client-centred therapy, insight-oriented psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, NLP, cognitive behaviour therapy, psychoanalytic and psychodynamic theory.

We don’t categorise you, label you or apply textbook therapy. You are a unique individual in your own right. In every session at Bayside Psychotherapy, you get the benefit of our holistic approach with our therapists drawing on a blend of therapies from the East and West to help you get back to a positive place in your life.

Online and In-Clinic Couple & Marriage Counselling

Couple counselling may help transform your relationship by unearthing unconscious conflicts which both parties carry, often without knowing it. Such relationship templates often form during childhood with little if any conscious choice. Small wonder why we have such a high divorce rate. Couples counselling aims to improve goodwill and communication between couples to support each other rather than cause harm.

Learn communication skills that may help you both to get heard and understood and eliminate naming, shaming, blaming and the destructive obsession to be right. Read More…
