For certain criteria I will travel to the client.
I think finding the right counsellor is really important as it affects the work you are able to do with them. You need to find someone you can trust. I would encourage you to ring and chat about what you need and talk to me. Counselling is really powerful but working with the right person is essential.
I will encourage you to do that! I will offer you a place that is safe and gives you space to move, come to terms with, change or heal a situation where possible.
