Here at Focus Counselling Services, we believe that everyone can benefit from talking things out. Pretty simple, really. Life can throw some fairly challenging things our way, often when we’re not expecting it. Sometimes it can feel so overwhelming that we don’t know how we will cope, and counselling can help. At Focus Counselling Services, we believe that you already hold all the skills and abilities you need to get through. We are not advice givers, but as counsellors we provide you with a safe place to examine options, identify any self-destructive patterns of thinking or behaviour, or just help you process any difficult emotions.

Both Josette and Verity have a special interest in working with separating families. Separation brings about many emotions, most commonly a sense of grief and loss. Anger is often also a big part of the emotional journey. We have experience in working with many kinds of families who have been navigating the challenges of separation, including the family court system. We’ve seen first hand the damage caused by conflict and sat with the immensely intense emotions that family separation can bring to both parents and children. We believe that with counselling and support, you will not only survive the experience,  but survive it well, and thrive in the process.
