Counselling and Psychotherapeutic Approach
Ursula works in a humanistic and integrative way which means she uses a variety of skills depending on the requirements of her client’s needs.

If you have experienced a major life event (i.e. relationship breakup, bereavement, loss of job, change in financial situation…) or if indeed you feel a bit “flat” and the usual coping skills like “getting on with it” or “bouncing back” are no longer working for you, this is a good time to seek out professional help to restore you to your usual Self.
