I value the courage and commitment that is needed to embark on a 1-2-1 therapeutic process. 

Our feelings are information and at times feel unbearable or overwhelming. In therapy, having a dedicated safe space will enable you to make sense of them.

As therapist John Bradshaw writes, "Anger is a boundary that guards us. Fear is telling us to go slowly and carefully. Sadness helps us complete things and recognise that life is a profound farewell. "
