Brian Skilling Counselling and Clinical Supervision
I can help you work together overcome the current issues that present itself. To cut the waffle that most counsellors provide on their advertisements, I will listen to your issues and see if we can both find a therapeutic approach that can help. No technical jargon, therapeutic confusion or waffle. All I ask is for you to make the first move to see if we can both work together, no commitment or binding contracts. If you are happy to proceed then we can work out the best ways in moving forwards. I can offer reduced fees based on current criteria if this is a concern as I know things can be a struggle. We can discuss this in our session and other questions you may have before proceeding.
If you wish to read further then thank you.
