Face to Face Counselling


As human beings, everyone experiences difficult times in their life. We can often feel down, sad, angry, afraid, frustrated, confused, tired. Sometimes, life can really throw us and we simply have no idea how to cope. This often passes by itself, but should it not, it can be helpful to seek professional help. There are a variety of reasons why a person can end up struggling emotionally in their life. I can help you to explore the source of your problems and navigate your way to feeling good again. Counselling can help you to get insight and advice, to share your struggle and gain perspective, to learn new skills and to strengthen what you already know. I always work with my clients in a warm, compassionate, respectful, direct and confidential manner.
