About me

My name is Natalia, and I offer a counselling and psychotherapy service to adults and young people. I offer sessions over video or telephone, with the option to work face-to-face where required. 

My business page ‘Open Tabs’ felt apt since a lot of us might feel like we have thousands of tabs open at a time. Sometimes we might just need some help to close them.
