What is counselling?
Sometimes there are periods in our life when things get 'on top of us' and we feel we have no-one to turn to.
You may be having difficulties with events, current or past, or may wish to think about your direction in life.
Counselling is a chance to explore your innermost thoughts and concerns in a safe environment.
It offers an opportunity to look at issues in a way that feels comfortable, without being judged, and with complete respect for your beliefs and life philosophy.
