In life we all encounter problems that can get us down and affect our day to day happenings. Here at Mayo Adult & Child Therapy Centre we have numerous different therapies to choose from which will help you combat these issues and move on swiftly and smoothly

Play Therapy

Children very often do not have the words to communicate their feelings, worries, fears, needs and experiences. Play therapy and counselling recognises that children’s natural form of communication is play, and uses this medium to allow children to ‘play out’ these feelings. Children are encouraged to draw upon their own resources, imagination and creativity to bring about understanding, change and self-development through counselling. This in turn brings about healing and allows children to reach their full potential and overcome the following:

  • Emotional & Behavioural issues
  • Trauma
  • Bereavement or Loss
  • Neglect /Abuse
  • Anxiety
  • Anger issues
  • Bullying
  • Low Self Esteem
  • Attachment/Bonding issues
  • Divorce/Separation
  • Learning difficulties
  • Adoption / Fostering
  • Elective Mutism
  • Illness
  • Adult Therapy

    Many relationships can reach a stage where one or both partners are finding it difficult to see a way forward.  Couples report that the relationship no longer provides what they need and they may want to make changes that can improve their relationship.  If the communication within the relationship has become difficult it may happen that the behaviour of one or both parties seems unreasonable to the other and counselling can help.  Some of the following can be reasons couples seek therapy and counselling:

  • Not putting enough time into relationship
  • Excessive Working
  • Affair
  • Excessive Socialising
  • Arguments
  • Conflict
  • Resentment
  • Boredom
  • Financial issues
  • Feeling Misunderstood
  • Sexual difficulties
  • Adolescent Therapy

    Teenagers face a host of changes that can be difficult to navigate on their own.  The natural changes of puberty, relationships, peer pressure, drugs, alcohol and sexual issues coupled with educational and parental expectations may become over whelming for the teenager and can sometimes cause a teenager to become depressed or anxious. Adolescent therapy and counselling helps teens who are experiencing:

  • Irritability, anger, or hostility
  • Tearfulness or frequent crying
  • Withdrawal from friends and family
  • Loss of interest in activities
  • Low Self Esteem
  • Thoughts of death or suicide
  • Sexuality issues
  • Sexualised behaviour
  • Abuse
  • Drug/Alcohol
  • Eating disorders
  • Relationship issues
  • School related issues
  • Bullying / Cyber Bullying
  • Family Therapy

    Family therapy and counselling helps family members improve communication and resolve conflicts. It is often short term. It may include all family members or just those able or willing to participate. Your specific treatment plan will depend on your family's situation. Family therapy/counselling sessions can teach you skills to deepen family connections and get through stressful times.
