A BRITISH expat is hoping to dispel what she describes as the ‘taboo’ of counselling after training for a diploma in the subject.
Philippa Porral, from Sotogrande, is studying part-time while also completing a placement with Connect Counselling Services in Gibraltar.
“There seems to have been this taboo about counselling which is disappearing now, people are becoming more open minded about it, which is great as the truth is most of us could do with counselling at some stage in our lives, whether we recognise it or not,” Porral, who is also an artist, told the Olive Press.
