    Over 17 years experience working and training within a variety of organisations, NHS General Practice, Bradford Rape Crisis, Behind Closed Doors (domestic violence), Sue Ryder Hospice, Bradford Counselling Services. It can sometimes be hard to know who we are with the negative demands made upon us to confirm. I believe every human being is unique with the ability to change. The counselling relationship will provide an environment in which you can gain understanding, clarity and choice. Let me help you take the right path to get back on track.
