There is a growing research base demonstrating online therapy is just as effective as face-to-face therapy, which has allowed us to feel confident that we can offer the same high quality of service online as we would face-to-face.

Online Clinic

Our online clinic allows the convenience and flexibility of having professional support in your own home, which is ideal for people with busy schedules, mobility limitations, or who prefer this mode of treatment.

Your privacy is of the utmost importance to us, so we ensure our online forms and information storage systems are all encrypted, our telehealth consultations take place via a HIPAA compliant video conferencing system, and we use certified secure payment systems.

Person-centred holistic approach

Carly takes a person-centred, holistic approach to therapy; she draws from eco-psychology and utilises evidence-based therapies, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Mindfulness, and Nature Therapy to help clients break free from the negative life patterns that underlie longstanding psychological difficulties and challenging relationships.

At the heart of Carly’s approach is the belief that all of our emotions make sense and hold important information about our values and needs.

Trauma-Sensitive Yoga Classes

Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances.

Trauma-sensitive yoga can support shifting the experience of yoga from the external to the internal.

Trauma-sensitive yoga does not focus on external appearances, such as doing a pose “right,” or external praise from an instructor, as may be the case in traditional yoga. Rather, trauma-sensitive yoga focuses on the internal experience.

This shift encourages participants to listen to their body to inform decision-making, leading to a better mind-body connection, and a stronger sense of agency.

Nature Therapy

Carly Dober offers bespoke Nature Therapy packages, designed for individuals needing to reconnect with their environment, and for groups of up to 12 people.

Blue and green spaces have been long shown to benefit mental and physical health.

Carly facilitates this process in a mindful and reflective manner.
