Counselling allows you to discuss problems and difficulties in a safe and confidential environment.
I specialise in working with people who have experienced trauma, as well as people involved with the criminal justice system.
Different people need different types of support at different times. By working together, we can tailor the type of therapy to suit you as an individual.
