There are are many reasons why people seek counselling and psychotherapy, you may be experiencing relationship difficulties, dealing with feelings of loss and grief or have lost self-esteem and lack confidence.

You may be struggling with the after-effects of childhood abuse and don't know how to move on from painful memories.

Difficult, unmanageable feelings of anger, sadness or fear could be making you feel overwhelmed, anxious and/or depressed.

Therapy can be reparative and transformative. It can offer you a feeling of empowerment as well as heal traumas and psychological wounds.

The psychotherapy  process can enable you to work through your feelings, move on from painful issues, and help you to lead a more fulfilled, happier and healthier life.
