What is Psychotherapy?

Our commitment to psychotherapy: a deep and reflective talking therapy best-suited to resolving trauma and underlying issues, allows us to intensify therapy solutions. Through psychotherapy you will explore and resolve unconscious mental processes that impact your functioning in both interpersonal and vocational domains.

Our services also include assessments into areas of development that involve mental health, attention, mood, ability, and intelligence. These assessments can be used to improve your individual support plan (see psychometric testing for more information.)

A Solution Tailored For You

Throughout our therapy we aim to provide the best fit between client and counsellor by adopting a person-centred focus in a non-judgmental and confidential environment. The psychological services you receive here at Direct Focus Solutions will be tailored to your specific needs. As such, the psychological care you’ll receive from us focuses on more than just on your initial concerns. You will also be given access to programs that will strengthen you as an individual in the long term; consolidating and maintaining your gains. This personalised approach to treatment helps us go the extra mile to equip you with the skills you need to deal with life’s challenges.

For instance, we offer support groups for parenting, new mothers, enhancing communication, self-esteem development, social skilling and achieving peak performance.

If you feel as though your current situation is taking a toll on your everyday life or harming your self-perception and relationships with others, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Direct Focus Solutions.
