Calm Transitions works with clients individually and as a family system. Our therapist has a strong interest, expertise and understanding in child development, behaviour issues and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and the impact this can have on the way family members relate to each other. Calm Transitions prides itself on using the modalities that best suit each client, regardless of age, to enable them to work towards achieving their specific goals. Our therapist operates from the belief that the greatest holders of change within a family unit are the parents. She believes in meeting and working with parents initially, before meeting children. Our therapist's gentle and calm approach enables clients to feel at ease in a relaxed tranquil setting.
