Have you noticed that life doesn’t always go according to plan?
Sometimes it can be the big things that get us down- the breakdown of a relationship, losing a loved one, the loss of a job or someone you love falling sick.
Or sometimes the things we desperately want in our life – that great partner, children, that amazing job – don’t come to us in the way we’d hoped they would.
Other times we might experience depression or anxiety, and we might try to fix them by cutting off from the things that we value, thereby making us even more sad or worried. And many times we humans just get stuck- we lack motivation or purpose… we’re low on confidence..we live on auto pilot and feel that life isn’t as vital or as meaningful as we imagine it could be.
Asking for help doesn’t come naturally for many of us. But speaking to a psychologist can assist you to see things from a different perspective. Therapy can be a helpful and supportive factor while you take steps towards living a life that really matters to you.

Unsightly body hair can be very upsetting and embarrassing for both men and women. Laser hair removal is considered one of the most effective treatments available today. At Kingspark Sports Medicine Centre we only provide our clients with the best. We therefore have chosen to utilise the three wavelength diode laser, ensuring safe and comfortable hair removal. It is suitable for all skin types, gives relatively fast results and no downtime after the procedure. The treatment is virtually painless and can last from a few minutes up to an hour depending on the area being treated. Laser is only effective on hair during the early growth cycle. Therefore, several treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart may be required to attain effective results. The number of treatments required is dependent on a person’s hair color, coarseness of hair and hormones.
