Taking The First Step...

It is very difficult to make the initial contact to a stranger knowing that you need either personal counselling, help or career guidance and coaching. Will you like the counsellor/coach? How do you know they will help? What would it be like to share your personal problems?

It is a risk. However what will it be like if you don’t get help? How will life be if nothing changes? How much longer can you or your loved ones tolerate your feelings of distress?

The initial session face-to-face, on the telephone or on skype is an exploration. It opens the door to possibilities. Suddenly you will have the opportunity to talk to someone who will listen, understand, care and over time, help

CG counselling is focused on people and aims to meet their expectations
