I am a qualified counsellor working in Winchester. My private practice offers you a safe and comfortable place where you can be heard in complete confidence without being judged or lectured to.
Life can get complicated and challenging. We can lose track of where we are going, or wonder whether we really want to go there at all. We can experience difficulties in our work or in our close relationships. We can lose our motivation, sense of direction, confidence and sense of purpose. We can feel sad, angry or afraid without knowing why. We can get into the same negative patterns and traps again and again, and we cannot understand what is going wrong. We can find that opening up to friends or loved ones is not useful or desirable.
Professional counselling can make a real difference to our understanding of what is happening and why, and how we can implement real and lasting changes in how we see, feel and relate to ourselves and to others.
My experience covers adults and young adults living with depression, anxiety, panic and stress, loss of motivation or direction in life, terminal illness, workplace and relationship issues, and sexual violence or abuse.
I have worked as a counsellor in a variety of settings like Universities, hospitals, GP practices, charities and Council-supported establishments.
I work mainly with Transactional Analysis, which is a theory of personality and a communication system that can implement simple, positive and rapid changes. I also use other modalities and schools of thoughts, depending on your needs.

My practice is in central Winchester in a safe, private and comfortable setting with plenty of free parking. I am also on a main bus route (no 5/66).
I have a very old and well-behaved small dog, not allowed in my counselling room.
