Working Together, Towards Understanding

You may be experiencing a challenging stage in life or having difficulty within yourself.
Whatever you might be going through, whether it be something specific, a recent loss, relationship issues, feeling depressed, stressed or anxious or a more general sense of sadness or dissatisfaction, talking to an Independent Counsellor may help you to gain more understanding and a clearer vision.
Sometimes it’s difficult to move forward in life. I believe you can reconnect with life to find a more peaceful and happier way of being through counselling.
I believe in helping clients understand their thoughts and feelings and to provide the necessary ’tools’ to equip them throughout life.
