Life is full of ups and downs and we all feel stuck at times. What turns challenges into injuries is facing these challenges alone.

Whether you are experiencing distress, going through struggles, preparing for the next stage of life or simple staying curious about yourself and seeking for self-discovery, Footprints counselling provides a safe place for individuals, couples and families to explore and make sense of experienced inner emotions, understanding key interaction patterns in self and others, and finding hope for secure attachment, recovery and reconciliation.
