All individuals, couples and families face difficulties at one time or another, and there are occasions when a qualified professional can be helpful in sorting out these problems. During counselling the professional counsellor helps you identify, and work on solutions to those problems in your life that are holding you back from greeting each day with hope. Discover our counselling staff and contractors.
