U Parallel is uniquely positioned to provide a mix of therapy and coaching to help people navigate life’s challenges.

Welcoming the whole of you…wherever you’re at!

Committed to supporting people through challenges in life.

When it comes to wellbeing and mental health, rarely are causes and concerns confined to one aspect of a person’s life, like work or home. The relationship you have with your own emotional health and well-being is the foundation of all your other relationships. However big or small your challenge, problem or goal, U Parallel works to develop a thorough understanding of what’s on your mind, providing you with a fresh perspective and the necessary tools that empower you to proactively work on your mental health and well-being as you move forward in life. Our all encompassing sessions give people the safety and freedom to discover & appreciate their values and goals, and how to achieve them while understanding the role their well-being and mental health plays in having the life they want.

Human-centred: Our unique approach

U Parallel is unique because it uses a mix of evidence-based therapy and coaching: providing our clients with a caring, flexible and human-centred service, we teach them the skills and tools for optimum emotional health and well-being using Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT).  ACT is a mindfulness-based mental flexibility therapeutic coaching approach that explores the whole self, to understand what’s working and what isn’t, and helps clients to freely live their values and achieve important life goals and dreams without fear or judgement.

How we ‘think’ about ourselves is typically at the heart of what is holding us back.

Context is everything.
