I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist working in the field since 2002. I have gained extensive experience working in a range of settings with issues including trauma, relationship difficulties, anxiety, depression and low self esteem etc. Apart from my own well established private practice which has been running since 2005, I worked as a counsellor/psychotherapist for ten years at a crisis centre for adults recovering from recent or historic sexualised trauma.
Having trained 'Integratively' this means I believe no one theory fits all so I have studied different theories and can use this additional knowledge to tailor the work to suit your individual needs. I also believe in working collaboratively and empathically with you so sensitive issues can be aired. The work is frequently explorative to help us understand how your past and/or unconscious ways of relating may be affecting you today, or it can be more focussed and short term if you wish to address a particular difficulty or unresolved trauma.
It can be daunting looking for the right therapist and the fit between client and therapist is crucial to the outcome. For this reason I offer a full assessment lasting about an hour so you get a chance to assess me and to get a feel for how I work, My private practice in Stubbington is in a quiet confidential setting within easy reach of the M27, Fareham, Gosport and Whitely, where I provide an environment which is caring, supportive and values your individuality.
Assessments and sessions currently cost £45. Sessions are usually weekly on a short or long term basis depending on your needs.
If you would like any further information or would like to make either a daytime or evening appointment for an assessment please email or ring me and I will respond to you as soon as possible, usually the same day.
