Bella: The Big Rescue Dog

Bella acts as our doorbell and welcoming committee. She is our dear rescue dog, full of love and compassion – but she also knows she is not allowed to greet you at the front door or come into the therapy room unless she is invited. She is usually sitting at the top of the stairs when you enter, wagging her tail and loudly talking. 

Susan: Our Tuesday Administration

The very friendly Susan is here to answer your phone calls on Tuesdays. Susan and Peta have been working together for many years, and she knows the answers to most of your questions.

Get help to get unstuck

When you are feeling stuck, speaking to a psychologist can often help you to see things from a different perspective, or can help you to learn some different skills to assist with the problem.
