Counselling is a personal journey of exploration and self discovery. For whatever reasons you are looking at coming to counselling, I can provide you with a confidential and safe space for you to explore your feelings and inner self. We can work together within an emphatic, trusting, non-judgmental relationship to help you find a way through life's challenges. Counselling can assist you in understanding yourself better and deciding on choices that work for you.
I can offer sessions that suit you; long or short term - you decide; whatever suits your needs. I can offer various times, please get in touch with any questions.
