About

At Engage Therapy we specialise in therapy for children, young people and parents. Family life is often joyful but can sometimes be difficult.

Many families with young children experience periods where life can seem more difficult and problems arise in their lives that can cause anxiety and distress.

These feelings may be experienced by one individual or as part of the relationship between partners or between parents and children. People can find it helpful at these times to reflect on the situation and explore different solutions to their problems in a supportive environment.

  • Priya has a lovely way with children and teens, and helped our family tremendously. Her therapeutic approach enabled our daughter to have some insight to why she was feeling the way she was. She gave her a tool kit of coping strategies which she still uses a year and a half on. I sometimes here her say, “What would Priya say?”

  • Priya made me go from an insecure, scared, panicked 18 year old to a confident person who is now striving at university. I will be forever grateful.

  • Elisabeth is very warm, caring and understands what our family is going through.  I highly recommend families seek her help when they are struggling to cope with a challenging situation.

  • Priya’s support of our daughter at a difficult time for our family made a huge improvement to her emotional wellbeing. She is still reaping the benefits now. I can’t recommend Priya highly enough.

  • Priya exudes the right amount of warmth and sensitivity needed to help children feel safe. My son was able to form a bond quickly that allowed him to discuss his worries.

  • We’re really grateful for how much Elisabeth has helped our teenager.  

  • Priya Vigneswaran was the first counsellor I felt at ease with. She was great and helped me tremendously. I would recommend her without hesitation and will certainly go back to her should I need any help in the future.

  • Dr Priya was great – involving the whole family. Friendly and empathetic, Dr Priya was still a composed professional throughout. She gave us great ideas to help, with good success. I would recommend her to anyone.

  • Priya is fantastic, very sensitive and understanding. It was a pleasure to work with her.

  • Priya was absolutely fantastic and I cannot praise or thank her enough for what she has done for my son. She is amazing.

  • Accommodating for appointments, knowledgeable with techniques and strategies, good rapport with my daughter and myself knowing these things take time she dealt with the issues with kindness and patience and always went the extra mile.

  • Priya made my daughter feel happy, at ease and comfortable, so much so that she looked forward to going along to Priya’s sessions each week. I noticed that she actively applied the strategies that they worked on together to help in times of stress and anxiety.

     

  • We all felt comfortable with Priya and her approach put my son at ease.

    I liked the way she came up with practical exercises to help my son slowly take steps towards conquering his fear of dogs.

  • Priya was very supportive when my young son started having behavioural issues after a messy breakup. She liaised with his school and provided invaluable processes and mechanism to help him deal with his anxieties and stress. He is a different, happier child now.
