27 High Street
I am a fully qualified and accredited integrative counsellor. I provide short-term or long-term confidential counselling and psychotherapy. I can offer you a safe, confidential and non-judgemental place for you to talk freely and really be heard.
Maybe you are going through a difficult time and need support during this time, like a divorce, loss or bereavement. You may have deep-seated feelings of inferiority from the past or present, that trigger feelings of low self-esteem, anxiety and depression.
You may not have had control over all the events that have happened to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.
From my own experience of therapy, at a very painful and challenging time in my life,therapy enabled me to understand and empathise with my clients. I trust that my life experiences and professional training have qualified me to support another human being on their journey.
With my help and support you can learn to take more control of your life, however frightening or confusing the past may have been or the future may seem. Together we can work towards you having the courage to change and the choice to move on.
