St. Marys Road
Sometimes life can feel overwhelming. Most of the time we can cope well when faced with these challenges. Other times we find ourselves struggling with our load and worrying about what is coming at us next. As a counsellor I will provide a warm, safe supportive environment to allow you to explore your experiences and concerns without the fear of being judged. I can provide the time and space to help you identify and overcome issues that are causing you emotional pain. By gaining insights you can start to understand what is preventing you from living the life you want to live.
