The focus of the counselling work is to explore life issues in a non-judgemental environment; I believe that each individual is the expert within their own life; they have a wealth of intrinsic abilities which when discovered and acknowledged encourages emotional growth and psychological well-being. The counsellor or psychotherapist supplies the skills and qualities to work alongside the individual as they explore the horizons of their inner world.
The therapeutic and training services are based upon a philosophy which endevours to provide a safe space for each individual or group regardless of their differences and diversity of experience.
