I understand that it may feel as though life is working against us, or we are struggling to make sense of where we are going or what we are supposed to be doing? Sometimes we question why we are constantly striving for the next best thing, or trying to find a person who can really understand us, for who we really are, or who we are longing to become, or are we continually searching for someone to make us happy?

Other areas of counselling I deal with
I thought I'd share with you two recent testimonials from two of my most recent clients:
''I have attended counselling sessions with Andrea for over a year. She has been thoroughly professional and compassionate throughout. With her help, I have regained my self confidence and self esteem which was at an all time low. She has helped me to identify with myself again and given me coping strategies to deal with issues that have, and still do, affect me. I have found the sessions invaluable. I would have no hesitation to recommend her services.''
''Andrea has helped both myself and my son immensely. Coming from a background of both going thru domestic violence / abuse, Andrea has helped build and strengthen the relationship between myself and my son after awful trauma and to build our confidence self esteem and belief in ourselves that we can achieve our goals and move onto to a positive bright future. She has motivated me in such positive ways and helped me achieve things I couldn't imagine ever doing at the start to a point where I have had the confidence and trust in myself to make life changing decisions to move my life to a better place where I should be to benefit all my family. Andrea instills positiveness and direction in me and has helped me immensely through my journey recovering from domestic abuse and ptsd. I cannot recommend Andrea's services highly enough. She is currently working closely with my son again now to help with his adhd / autustic spectrum issues, helping to encourage creativity empowering him and his ability to achieve and boosting his confidence in the school holidays and I can't wait for the results of this to show to his school when he returns back in Sept.''
