The Lighthouse Counselling
Quality Care You Can Count On
“Out of your vulnerabilities will come your strength”
What To Expect At Your Visit
Perhaps you're down or anxious - maybe you're unsure about the future of a relationship, or just feel that you aren't living the life you were meant to lead. Whatever your needs may be, I am here to offer support. Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery, and in my sessions I promote behavioral transformation by encouraging a positive outlook and the adoption of new attitudes and reactions. I have the professional experience to help you get back on track.
