Therapy for Individuals of All Ages

Supporting you in moving forward and feeling differently

Therapy provides time with a completely independent, non-judgemental professional who listens carefully to what you have to say. Whether talking, using creativity, arts, play, systemic or cognitive behavioural modalities, each and every therapy can be integrated so that, together, you find a method that meets your needs.

The goal is to create an honest, trusting and respectful relationship between you and your therapist so that you can work through your thoughts, feelings, experiences and hopes for the future. Ultimately, we want to you to begin thinking about things in a different way and to feel more accepting of yourself.

Who do we support?

The short answer is everyone – people of all ages, genders, backgrounds and circumstances including couples and families. Adults may access therapy to resolve struggles or to adjust to life-changing events, whereas young people may need help with any confusing feelings or life transitions. Our therapists will assist couples in working through miscommunication, and help families who are dealing with difficult dynamics. For children, we are able to provide a safe opportunity to express memories in an effective, creative, less intrusive way.

Approved Provider for Adoption Support

Adoption can be an extremely rewarding but challenging time for both parents and children, and in the past, many families may not have received sufficient help – particularly when it came to awareness of mental health issues. This is why the Government has implemented the Adoption Support Fund – so adoptive families can easily access the therapeutic support they need.

Fortis Therapy & Training are proud to be on the Approved Provider List for Therapeutic Services for the Yorkshire and Humber Adoption Consortium. We work closely with both adoptive families and the Local Authority during and following adoption, supporting the new parent-child relationship and helping to establish a loving and stable home.

Therapy Sessions via Skype

We understand that meeting face-to-face can be daunting at first, which is why we can talk with you over Skype as well as in person.

The process is exactly the same; reach out to us when you’re ready and we’ll arrange a suitable date and time for a session. The only difference is you’ll be in the comfort of your own home.

Because of this, our therapists and counsellors can offer their support to people all around the UK and internationally.

What happens next?

If you’ve been thinking about therapy – even if you’re not sure what you want – give us a call or send us an email. Everything we discuss is confidential, and once we’ve had a chat we can arrange a meeting before deciding the best way to move forward, together.
