If youâ€™re looking at this webpage, my guess is you are looking around to see what is available to help you.
Why not take the first step and give me a call? Our initial counselling appointment is always FREE and I would love to help you. I will offer you a really safe and confidential space to talk and, by listening, I will support you as you discover solutions to your problems. Some things don't have a solution, such as the death of someone you love very much. In these cases, I can help you come to terms with things which cannot be altered so that you can see clear through the pain to the rest of your life.
Our initial telephone consultation will give us an opportunity to discuss your needs and if you do decide to carry on, we will arrange a regular time to meet up each week. Each session will be quality time for you to talk through your problems in a non-judgmental setting that will be uniquely tailored to you.
