COUNSELLING


Counselling is a chance to talk through your problems/anxieties and emotions with a trained counsellor/pschotherapist.  The counsellor /psychotherapist plays a supportive role, and may sometimes provide practical advice on problem solving..


TALKING

Talking to a complete stranger is easier, you can be honest with a stranger and you don't have to worry about what you say or how it sounds they will not judge you.


WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

Counselling/psychotherapy offers a supportive relationship where you can explore any issue at your own pace.

You are accepted for who you are.

Explore past or present experiences.

Counselling/psychotherapy can improve how you communicate and accept the choices you make.


I provide the following options for your counselling sessions:


Face to Face

online - Zoom

WhatsApp Video

Chat
