Ashurst | Southampton | Hampshire
Are you feeling overwhelmed, alone, sad, depressed, anxious, confused, angry, stuck, stressed or generally something is just not right?
Person-Centred Counselling is a talking therapy that will help to enhance your sense of well being, personal freedom and relationships through exploring the particular circumstances of your distress.
I believe by being truly listened to, you will find the answers
within yourself to make changes to lead a more fulfilling life.
By working together, we will develop a genuine and trusting relationship as a safe and respectful space for you to be yourself and to be heard.
I will focus on you and your concerns by giving you support and time to consider your own thoughts and beliefs, helping you to find a clearer way forward.
Shall we talk?
