Counselling offers you a place to explore the difficulties in your personal life and working career with a counsellor trained to neither judge nor advise, but to examine and unblock feelings which may have been hidden for years.

 

Work, relationships and self - each one is as important as the other. During our counselling sessions, we will work together to bring all aspects of your life into balance, resulting in a happier, more confident, capable you.

 

In a counselling session, we may discuss your past and present relationships, family, health and general well being. This is designed to help you understand more about yourself. Together we will build a strong therapeutic relationship.

 

Gradually you will move to feel calmer and clearer in your thinking. Our counselling sessions will help you develop the skills and confidence to make changes in your life, and come to terms with things that can’t be changed.​
