Sometimes navigating the complexities of life and being human gets a little tricky to manage and we can get lost along the way.

While friends and family can be a great source of support, sometimes they are simply just too close to be impartial or do not have the necessary skills to support your journey.
I am experienced in supporting people with a wide range of difficulties including:
