Support from others is vital to our emotional well-being. However, sometimes we may find ourselves 'stuck' in a rut or struggling with sensitive issues that could benefit from a neutral professional approach. Counselling sessions are entirely confidential and offer a safe space for you to explore your problems without judgement.

In early childhood we are constantly learning from our environment. As a result, it is natural to learn patterns of behaviour from those around us during this formative time.  Influences in childhood and challenging life experiences can have a lasting impact. We may develop ways of coping that become self-limiting. It takes courage and motivation to really explore one’s self but we can change the way we experience ourselves. Counselling helps us to make sense of our emotions and to change our negative thoughts and behaviours.
