COMMUNICATION THROUGH
HONESTY AND SAFETY

Creating a warm and safe environment that encourages self exploration

Who is Luke Bands
Luke Bands Counselling Psychologist   —  

I HELP YOU
UNDERSTAND
YOURSELF
DEEPLY.

I am here to help you understand yourself and the challenges you face, and grow and overcome them. My focus is on creating a safe relationship that encourages self exploration, and really getting to know you. Therapy should be specifically tailored to your unique psychology.
 
I offer individual psychotherapy for adults and teenagers, as well as play therapy with younger children. The range of my work is broad, from coping with trauma or life adjustments, to long term psychotherapy for complex issues.

I am primarily psychodynamic in my approach to therapy. Psychodynamic therapy focuses on improving functioning in different personal domains, such as relationships, impulses and emotions. Deep insight and emotional development are examples of important goals of this kind of therapy. Deeply knowing oneself leads to agency and a sense of mastery over various areas of one’s life.
