I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor, Trauma & EMDR therapist, Supervisor and Couples Counsellor based just outside Stroud, Gloucestershire.
My therapy suite is a warm, inviting and comfortable log cabin and is situation in a private position within my garden, a toilet is available and there is plenty of free parking making coming and going to your therapy session stress free and private.
I am extensively qualified and experienced and offer a warm and empathic environment for you to share your issues, feel heard and improve the areas of your life that may feel chaotic and are causing you problems.
