Life may be challenging you in many ways and there may be some areas of your life that you would like to change or improve.
If you feel you are struggling with an important area of your life such as a valued relationship or building new relationships .. or
You are experiencing difficulty with anger, criticism, anxiety, panic, stress, depression, your relationship with food and eating... or
A change in your life is proving difficult to cope with such as redundancy, new job, work - life balance, divorce, illness, retirement, bereavement, pregnancy and parenthood, menopause... then
Counselling offers you an opportunity to look at the problem areas of your life in a safe and confidential environment, and to explore ways that you might bring about the changes and life choices that feel right for you.
