AFFORDABLE COUNSELLING
I have just set up a counselling service in Saltaire. It has taken me seven years to qualify and I am working from home in Rhodes Street. I am very keen to make the service affordable to everyone, regardless of what they earn, or do not as the case may be. I am therefore AFFORDABLE COUNSELLING ! My lowest price is just £10, up to £20 for people on a good income. I have dealt with many issues to date , including depression, bereavement, changes and loss, low self esteem and relationship problems.
