Welcome. Please help yourself, and look around while you are here.

It can be very difficult to make sense of counselling and psychotherapy, especially at stressful and emotional times.  My work has shown me;
  • that most of the things that distress us can be understood if we can find the right place and time to discuss them  
  • that even if you have suffered profound traumatic upsets, now or in the past, it is possible to improve the way you feel about them, and to improve the way you live
I hope you find the site informative.  There are blog posts, videos and lots of other information and links to help you work out what you want to do next.
If after visiting the site you would like to discuss things further, then please contact me to arrange a free telephone consultation.
I welcome your comments, feedback and ideas, and I look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you for visiting
Kind regards
Toby Ingham
