Description

Seeking help and knowing where to start isn’t easy. In my work with clients over the last 20 years I have seen how our lives can get confusing and complicated. Sometimes we may cope in ways that help us manage or survive, but in the long run don’t get us where we hope to be. Whether it’s dealing with overwhelming emotions, relationship issues, confidence, life stress, loss or trauma - counselling is a place to start making sense of things and moving towards lasting change.
