welcome
My name is Pat, and I am based in Kirkburton and Holmfirth, but cover the whole of Huddersfield.

Is it difficult to see the wood for the trees? Do you need someone independent and professional to help you see more clearly, so you can decide what's best for you or your relationship?

You have taken the first and most difficult step in recognising that you need help.
Counselling is discreet and confidential, offering a caring environment in which to explore issues and situations.
Counselling enables you to gain some understanding of your current situation, allowing you to make choices and to consider what changes to make.
