All of us experience challenges or difficulties at certain times in our lives that can leave us feeling stuck, lost, helpless or depressed. Sometimes it is difficult to talk to those closest to us about the things that trouble us the most. That is when talking to a trained Counsellor in a safe, caring and confidential space can really help you explore your worries or difficulties without being judged.
You might wish to explore difficulties you are experiencing or perhaps a general dissatisfaction with life. It could be that you feel an inexplicable sadness or frustration that needs to be explored in order to move forward again. As a qualified and experienced Counsellor I encourage a dialogue between us, to understand you and to work with you to achieve your goals and the changes in your life you would like to make.
