My first session

Our first session is an opportunity for me to find out more about your current difficulties and what kind of support you need - and an opportunity for you to assess whether you feel comfortable working with me.

The session will offer a warm, safe, non-judgemental space where you can start to explore your feelings and find your way forward again.

The session can be face to face, online or by phone.
