I specialise in helping people to: 

  • believe in themselves
  • feel more resilient and able to cope

Counselling and Psychotherapy can offer you a safe and accepting place for you to share thoughts, feelings and emotions in a way that you may be unable to do – for any reason – with friends and family.
