Social Work

Assessment and Therapy Services

We use a variety of evidence based techniques, mediums and resources to assist our clients in planning, mapping and evaluating their progress.

We do have some fun with a range of resources to assist our clients. We find that humour, a can do attitude and positive goal focus can help you through tough times…..

We can provide limited outreach services for child assessment/therapy and supervision sessions for social welfare workers.
