Thank you for visiting my site and reading my profile. I provide a professional counselling service based on an integrative person centred / CBT approach.
The counselling sessions take place in a private, relaxed, non-judgmental environment where you are able to discuss matters that affect you now or have done in the past and my aim is to empower you to learn coping strategies that will improve your life now and in the future.
