TALK YOURSELF WELL: Its good to talk when your going through tough times.
I am passionate about helping people to achieve "Emotional Health and Well Being".
Gain a clearer understanding of yourself and discover a different and more positive way of thinking, feeling and behaving.Counselling helps you to unravel your own personal life experiences and develope better ways of coping. Results can be achieved in as little as 3-8 sessions.
Counselling can be a way of dealing with problems and reducing stress. It provides you with an opportunity to talk to someone who is trained to listen to your thoughts and feelings in an none judge-mental atmosphere. It also allows you to explore problems and issues leading to a better understanding and acceptance.

"One thing is for sure,that when you really need some help-help will show up. Pauline picked me up,dusted me down and pointed me in the right direction-she was essential to my recovery process.Punctual and professional,kind and caring.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Paulines' services, whether you're in deep, or just need a nudge in the right direction.
Really couldn't have done it without you"
Pauline, whatever compelled me to get in touch with you back in March, I'm just so glad I did. Full of appreciation for your understanding and patience that is helping me feel more comfortable and connected with me, others, and life generally. These new smiles run much deeper, priceless, thank you x...
For little insights that help shift perspectives, for simple aids that help turn around negativity and for encouragement that helps build self belief. I might struggle for words and confidence to describe it but I can feel the value of all of those things and it means a lot to me :-)

Now I believe I am able.
