Alison Rickard BACP Senior Accredited Counsellor, & Supervisor
It can be hard to talk about our problems, difficult to admit that we are struggling, and frightening to take the first step in getting help. Talking in confidence with a counsellor can really help us to clarify our thinking, to get a different perspective, and learn to understand ourselves better. It can help to give us the confidence to move forward and make changes in our life.
