A private space to talk, to be listened to, to think, to be thought about...

Past experiences, trauma, stressful situations or events in life can all result in emotional problems and personal difficulties. Help from a experienced clinician who is trained to explore these with you, at your own pace, in a safe and secure space can be hugely effective and beneficial. In addition, it is often of great relief to be able to talk to a professional person with complete freedom and in confidentiality.
