Hi I understand it can be difficult to take the first step when you are looking for help and support. Counselling is on a weekly basis.Meeting each week will give you the space and time to talk through your difficulties and help you understand your situation more clearly.
I have been working as a counsellor and trainer for over 10 years. I am a member of and accredited trainer with COSCA.
