At times we can all feel lost and life can feel overwhelming, with us struggling to get the people whom we love and trust to understand our inner feelings. As a qualified person-centred counsellor, I can offer an emphatic, open, safe environment enabling you to explore those feelings, allowing you to better understand them and helping you to reconnect with your inner values and sense of self-worth.
