About Us

Flame brings together a team of professionals – psychotherapists, counsellors, energy psychologists and psychiatrists – who are committed to holistic thinking and practice. Their experience is diverse and they synthesise teachings and practices that fill the gaps between mind, body and spirit, integrating them into a holistic framework that forms the solid foundation of Flame.

  • Our practitioners are fully trained and accredited by their relevant training bodies, with years of experience working with individuals, couples and groups, and expertise in dealing with a wide range of issues.
