What's worrying you?
- Relationship issues
I provide hope, support and practical skills for sufferers of depression and addiction and work with the experiences of trauma and phobia. I am here to help and we can explore together and start to understand your need and the underlying issues that are troubling you in a professorial empathetic way. I believe in counselling, we all need time to talk.
