Counselling or Psychotherapy can be of significant benefit to anyone facing life difficulties or suffering from symptoms that disrupt their life or make life difficult or even unbearable. Sometimes such difficulties are new to the person; sometimes they may have been ongoing for months or even years. While many people now realise quite early the value of speaking to a trained psychotherapist or counsellor, others may take longer to come to this realisation.  From our long experience in this field, we believe that it is never too late. Counselling and psychotherapy are provided on an appointment basis from 8.00am to 9.00pm Monday to Friday and from 9.00am to 4.00pm on Saturdays. Thank you for visitng our website - We hope to be of assistance to you very soon.
