Raffaella Mase, UKCP Registered Psychotherapeutic Counsellor
Many people have discovered that it is helpful to work with a mental health professional to sort out personal or social issues causing them stress. During emotionally difficult times it can be good to talk things through with a professional person outside the family to seek a solution.
I supply an environment where you can feel safe to explore your anxieties and behavioursat a pace which is right for you. Counselling is beneficial for dealing with life's daily issues which can often relate to a traumatic experience.
