Our team

Different models of working are represented in the counselling team, and this is reflected in the approach offered. However, all of the counsellors are experienced in meeting clients for the first time; in the first instance, you will be offered an initial meeting during which possible options might be discussed. You can request to see a male or female counsellor.
