Realising that you need help to discuss your difficulties can be a daunting prospect.
Taking that first step can often take a while to build up to.
There are times when everyone needs help to work through the obstacles that life throws at us, or those within that keep us stuck.
I can offer long and short term counselling & psychotherapy to help with a wide range of issues.
I work from my consulting room in Colchester, located just outside the town center, with free parking.
The next step?
When seeking help for the first time it can be difficult to know which approach might be best for your needs.
