I am a qualified counsellor offering an affordable and professional counselling service which provides a safe, independent place to help you talk things through. In our first counselling session we will explore what you want from counselling and then progress to identify what is going on in your life. By thinking through your issues, we can identify ways to cope, how to support yourself and develop awareness so as to move forward.
My approach is to work with you to find and agree what works best to achieve what you want.
