The Agency’s therapeutic counselling/psychotherapy service is informed by knowledge of human development across lifespan, counselling theories, best practices, and rests on the knowledge the psychotherapist/social worker has of safe and effective use of self. The psychotherapist/social worker applies knowledge of a wide variety of presenting concerns and human situations.
