How counselling can help
I believe that everybody is different and what works for one person does not necessarily work for another so I tailor my approach to suit each person. I provide a supportive and confidential environment to allow the exploration of experiences of loss, conflict, confusion and despair.
I understand that coming to counselling can be a big step so during your first session I answer any questions or concerns you may have about counselling so you can decide if you would like to begin sessions. Counselling can be short or long term depending on the issues you are facing and your personal requirements.
