Pat Smith - Adv.Dip. In Counselling
With over twenty years experience I offer individual, couples and relationship counselling from my private practice in Horsham.
Afternoon and evening sessions are available and I will endeavour to see you within one week of your initial enquiry.
I offer both long term and short term therapy in a warm, nurturing, safe, confidential, non-judgemental environment in which you will be able to develop a greater understanding about yourself so that you can make any changes necessary to fulfil your potential.
A good relationship between the client and the therapist is essential for promoting trust, confidence, a sense of wellbeing and growth and that is why a commitment to further sessions is only made at the end of the first session.
I look forward to helping and supporting you with the problems that you are currently facing.
Free easy access parking is available.
