Initial Contact


The thought of starting counselling or therapy can be difficult and talking to someone about the problems you are experiencing may be daunting so we work in a way which aims to eases any apprehension. It can be hard to make the first contact but the reality is that we all experience distressing events, or difficult feelings at some point in our lives. At those times, a little support can go a long way. Call 07708476330 or email to set up an initial 60 minute assessment session.
