Description

I offer mindfulness-based stress reduction courses for groups and individual counselling / psychotherapy aimed at the alleviation of any distress that you might be experiencing as you journey through life. We all struggle at times, and can often find ways through with the help of family and freinds. However, there can be times when we need extra support from outwith our usual circle; and this is when one to one counselling or a group approach can be crucial for our wellbeing.
