I work with clients on a holistic basis as I believe that this view of health is vital. Life is about balance and this means being aware of how you take care of yourself or how you ignore the little signals your body gives you until you have to listen. This means being aware of how you currently deal with stresses and how this helps or hinders your overall ability to live the life you would like. I believe that counselling can offer you this arena to explore your life in detail and to make the changes you would like within a supportive environment.
