There are times when we all need help with life's challenges. Offering individuals a space to reflect and think may lead to better understanding, self-awareness and change. A lot of individuals have feelings of getting stuck or going around in circles, often immersed in difficult feelings including anxiety, stress, anger or depression. Counselling can be that space where concerns, difficulties and fears can be explored and shared; an opportunity to unpick, uncover and repair issues or concerns.

He has travelled a lot in past and lived in different cultures, which has given him a huge perspective on life. He comes from an arts background, studying graphic design and illustration.
