Perhaps you’re visiting the Counselling in Preston website because you’re considering accessing professional counselling yourself,  want to do a little research to help a friend or family member, or you simply want to know more about counselling and how it may help.

I understand that it’s not always easy taking those initial first steps to getting the help you deserve. Once you’ve made the decision to access support, the rest is simple. We’ll arrange an initial free consultation, lasting 30 – 50 minutes. This is an opportunity for you to find out more about counselling, ask questions and make an informed choice; it’s up to you.

If you’d like to make an appointment for an initial free consultation, please feel free to contact me. There are lots of ‘counsellinginpreston’ websites and therapists out there – There is only one counsellinginpreston and I have been supporting the community since 2007.
