You as an individual knows yourself better than anyone else and are in the best position to know what you want or need. Sometimes it takes a little time and effort to clarify these things. Counselling is a very effective way of doing this.
I will work with you at your pace to support you to explore the person you are and what's troubling you right now.

Together we can explore how you want to move forward. You will be at the heart of our work.
