There are times in our lives when we feel the need to reach out to someone, to have a genuine person to be there in our hour of need. Someone to offer the hand of friendship, to listen attentively, be non-judgemental, supportive and caring.This could make a world of difference to each and everyone of us.
Serenity counselling can offer you a confidential, tranquil and safe environment throughout your counselling journey. I understand that it can be difficult to share concerns, however counselling can offer a way to alleviate worries and offer support, friendship and away forward.
I am situated in Castledawson village mid- way between Belfast and L/Derry approximately a quarter of a mile off the main arterial route. Please do not hesitate to arrange a consultation via a brief telephone call after which you can decide in your own time whether or not to avail of my counselling services.
