Not always easy, lots of soul searching and self discovery.

But eventually

I Qualified as a psychotherapist-counsellor, then I really began to learn, continuing my personal development, work shops, courses, and oftenlearning from you, the client.

So to summarise....

Counselling is the clients and the therapist coming together to find a way forward

Sessions last an hour, family counselling will be longer.

The number of sessions can be as many or as few as required, and although continuity is important we can spread them out if that’s more convenient.

Counselling can help by simply being able to talk freely in a safe environment; it is often called 'The Talking cure'.

Many people internalise their problems, often not knowing where to turn, then often feeling relief on being able to share with another.
