Life is a Journey...
...And wherever you are on yours - at the beginning of a chapter, moving through the motions or at a cross roads - you may feel the journey is difficult and unrelenting. Know that you are not alone and change is possible. Sometimes, all you need is someone to walk alongside you and a safe space to be.
What is Counselling/Therapy?
Counselling provides a space for you to talk about anything that prevents you from feeling ok, in a safe, non-judgmental and confidential environment. It is, in itself a journey and a process to explore yourself further, allowing you to find clarity in your thoughts, feelings and life experiences. Life throws many surprises at us, and while we cannot predict the outcome of any situation, we can take control of how we respond to it.
'You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.’ - Maya Angelou
How Can Therapy Help?
We all have blind spots in our growth and, by definition, they tend to be invisible when they are our own. The process of speaking with someone to explore why you think the way you think, and feel the way you do, will allow you to find clarity in your thoughts, feelings and life experiences.

“For me, becoming isn’t about arriving somewhere or achieving a certain aim. I see it instead as forward motion, a means of evolving, a way to reach continuously toward a better self. The journey doesn’t end.”
