My Personal Experience
Being a Parent / Carer of my own adult children offers me a unique insight into coping with a family with challenges.
This means that I work with an insider's view of what it means to be part of a ‘special’ family. In fact, a number of my clients have commented that they are so glad to have finally found someone that ‘gets them’.
Getting in touch with me
It may be tough to make that first call or to email me, but you are promised respect, care, compassion, understanding and absolute confidentiality when you do. I offer a straightforward, caring and professional counselling service with no ‘psycho-babble’.
