About me

Here at Welfare & Welfare we take a practical and realistic approach to helping you improve your life. We have had a wide life experience and are therefore able to practice therapy in a way that is relevant to the everyday life of the client.

We will help you to manage and enhance your life rather than only treating the immediate issue. Through this approach we help to assist you to be confident in managing your difficulties while achieving a satisfactory and lasting outcome.

We will work together to develop a strategy that will give you the fastest relief now and also the capability of managing any potential difficulties you may encounter in the future. The strategy we develop will be planned to give you benefit of not having to come back for long term therapy

Our wide-ranging mix of qualifications and certified therapies provide a highly specific therapy process designed to work well for you as an individual. Although we may also use reliable Counselling skills, Neuro linguistic programming, (NLP) Coaching for couples and relationships and Hypnotherapy exclusively , as required.
