As a person-centred counsellor, I believe that each of us is the best-qualified to find our own way in life. But that can be hard at times and it can sometimes be difficult to cope alone, and you may not want to discuss problems with friends or family.
A counsellor can help by providing a warm, thoughtful and non-judgemental space where you can voice your experiences and emotions and explore current problems or deep-seated issues. This can help you to gain a deeper understanding of who you are, as well as help you find ways to move forward and to become who you really want to be.
