- Hallo and welcome to my service. I am a trained and registered Counsellor and previously worked for 35 years in the NHS.
- I offer a place and time that is private and dedicated to you. It can be hard to begin to talk about very personal feelings and events - but I hope that you will feel comfortable and supported by me, whatever you wish to explore about you and your life.
- We start by making an agreement about how we are going to work together and then we check how we are doing after an agreed number of sessions, so that we stay focussed.Sometimes this work can be hard, and I encourage you to "stick with it" for at least three sessions.
- I look forward to meeting you.
Training, qualifications & experience
