Practice Philosophy


The foundation of our practice is the belief that all human beings are inherently worthwhile and important and that people have the capacity to change.

In our experience we have found that the process of change is facilitated by a therapeutic approach that focuses on building a strong therapeutic working relationship, offers a strength based orientation and helps clients strengthen their emotional connectivity, cognitive clarity and sense of positive identity.

The FPS team works with people to achieve their personal goals in a strategic and empirically based manner, integrating both the art and science of psychotherapy.

The treatment delivered by FPS is holistic and eclectic in nature with interventions attending to the cognitive, behavioural, emotional and spiritual dimensions of the individuals with whom we work. We strive to implement the theories and models of practice that will best meet the needs of our clients.
