Conventional medicine cannot possibly be expected to provide all the answers to life's emotional, psychological and social problems. We firmly believe that there are other effective approaches and methods of achieving personal freedom and improving emotional well being, other than just depending on taking endless doses of medication.

We are not against the use of medication, as in certain situations it is necessary and effective, but lengthy experience in the Counselling and Therapy field has taught us that while drugs can be lifesavers in the short term, on their own they are not the ultimate answer to solving the problems that we face in life. Drugs can be addictive and sometimes pose many side effects, which are not often apparent from onset. Over prescribed drugs are also rapidly developing into a widespread issue.

Combinations of medication, if necessary, along with Therapy and Counselling are most effective and beneficial to the client in the long run. Online Therapy studies have proven the positive affect of Online services with regards to combating depression and improving emotional healing.

This involves taking an in depth look at the cause of problems, as well as the result and solution.
