It can sometimes be difficult to completely open up to friends, relatives or work colleagues for fear of damaging relationships or compromising your career. I can provide a calm, unbiased and highly confidential space for you to talk about the problems in your life.
I am professionally trained to help you explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviour openly, without fear of being judged. I can support you to find alternative angles and gain new perspective.
