Sometimes we get stuck in patterns of behaviour which we learned at an early age, and then continue to repeat throughout our lives. If these patterns are unhelpful or destructive they can interfere with all of our relationships, personal and professional. Counselling can help us make sense of confusing emotions or damaging behaviours, and allow us the opportunity to change them.
Helping people who are struggling with their sexuality feel more comfortable in themselves and the way others view them. Helping you have a fulfilling intimate relationship.

Helping you address the emotions and issues that are causing suicidal thoughts whilst working on practical strategies to protect your personal wellbeing.
Supporting you to consider your choices whilst respecting the limitations of therapy and the right of personal choice.
