Ruth Webster Dip. Couns. MBACP
We all have busy lives and those lives are constantly changing. All of our experiences contribute to the way we live our lives and deal with the things that happen to us. Sometimes we have difficulty accepting our lives as they are and it is these difficulties that I can help with. Whether you are a Businessman or woman or a full-time parent I can help you to focus on the things that are important and help you accept things as they are or change the things you want to.
