William Thomson Counselling & Psychotherapy 

I am aware that it takes courage and a willingness to take the first steps to ask for help. If you are feeling overwhelmed, anxious, or depressed and you are sitting with a problem that may be made worse by a loss or past experience

or you are stuck and can’t move forward, it can be beneficial to speak in confidence with someone who is not immediately involved within your circle.
