Have you been feeling low, anxious, short tempered or close to tears more than you normally would? Is this causing difficulties in your relationships, with partners, family, at work or with friends.
Counselling can help you gain an understanding of why this is happening. It can give you tools to manage things differently and empower you to make the changes you need in order to have the life you want.
I am an experienced counsellor and supervisor that can provide you with a safe, confidential, non judgemental space in which to exlpore your life and help you find the answers.
If you would like to know more about the way I work please email, phone or text and I will happily answer any questions you may have.
