Alison Rickard MBACP Accredited Counsellor & Supervisor
Counselling offers a safe place where problems can be talked about without fear of judgement. Talking about our problems can help to get them in perspective, it can help us to understand ourselves better and help us discover new ways of managing difficulties in life.
My approach is LGBT inclusive
Training, qualifications & experience
