Life can be challenging and confusing at times and sometimes we need some help to work our way through and understand it. We may want to make changes and not know where to start, or resolve feelings and issues that are holding us back.
The good news is that you've already taken a significant step forward by being here, so well done you, and I can help you as you take your next steps.
You may have already seen that there are many types of counselling and therapy out there. That's great, but it can be confusing and time-consuming to try to find the right one for you.
I believe that the best therapy is one that can adapt to the person who needs it, because we are all different with unique life experiences.
I have purposefully trained and worked in many types of therapy so that I can offer a personalised approach that is as individual as you are to suit your specific needs and goals.
I also offer a free telephone consultation so we can discuss what help and support you are looking for and give you the opportunity to speak to me in person before committing to anything, so feel free to contact me and let's have a chat.
