Hello, my name is Adam Goward, I am passionate about counselling and the benefits of therapy, to be heard and feel understood, also to unpack thoughts and feelings can be so enlightening and liberating.
For me counselling is giving yourself the time and space to explore your issues, to gain insight with the help of a caring professional who is able to facilitate you through the often challenging and difficult experience of personal therapy.
Training, qualifications & experience

I have also had 5 years as a volunteer at a hospice where my work was centred around bereavement, other charitable work I do is for an organisation which has GP and self-referrals.
