You are in control of your therapy. If you ask I will provide you with tools to manage your difficulties whether that be anxiety, depression or lack of direction in your life. Your personal thoughts will be deeply respected and surrounded by the safety of confidentiality.

A BIT ABOUT ME
I am a 30 year old female. I started my counselling career when I was a single mother of 20 years old.
My most difficult life event was caring for my parents. My father died of Motor Neurones Disease and 3 months later my mother died from Cancer. I feel that it is important to tell you this as many people might think "she is only 30, what does she know?" I know that life can be hard. It will throw curve balls at us, sometimes when we least expect it. I have felt grief, pain, shame, regret, disappointment, anger and more. I used to wonder "how will I cope with this?" Sometimes it feels that there is no light at the end of the tunnel. I strongly believe that it helps to talk to someone who will really listen to our story. Someone who will not judge you, and help you sift through your thoughts. Someone who will follow your lead and allow you to express your feelings, worries, anger, concerns. It can be really scary talking to someone who you don't know and it takes huge amounts of courage to take the first step.
