Harmony Counselling Basingstoke

18 Winchester St, Basingstoke RG21 7DY, UK – 07500 770464

Harmony Counselling provides a discrete, welcoming, gentle, non-threatening and non-judgmental service to all those who walk through the door. Debs is calming and reassuring when working both one to one with a client, and also when working with groups. I have referred many clients to Debs and all have been extremely satisfied and have also referred other clients to Harmony. it is hard to explain the difference a good counselor can make, so I will simply go with invaluable. I cannot recommend Harmony enough, both personally and professionally. Debs really is one of a kind.

I have given myself a five star review! Well I would do that wouldn't I? Why don't you come along and give Harmony a try? I challenge you to find out for yourself the benefits and renewed sense of wellbeing that Harmony can bring to your life. If you are happy, I'd love you to leave me a genuine review!
