It can come as a relief to share thoughts and feelings that may have previously felt too difficult to talk about.

I can offer you the chance to talk through your concerns in a supportive, confidential environment. This can help you gain a greater understanding of yourself and your experiences. Therapy can help pave the way towards a more fulfilling life, where choices and decisions can begin to feel like opportunities rather than obstacles.

I will work with you on an open-ended basis or for an agreed period of time.
