About me

I am a qualified counsellor offering therapy for Young People and Adults.  I have 14 years experience of working with young people in Secondary Schools, the last 3 of those, as a Counsellor.

Why see a counsellor?  If you are looking at my profile then it is highly likely that something in your life is not right but you are struggling to work out either what it is and/or what to do about it. You need someone to talk it through with but find that it can be difficult with family and friends.  A counsellor is trained and impartial, someone who will listen to you, giving you the time and space you need to talk.

What can you expect when you come to see me?  A friendly, relaxed, non-judgemental and confidential space where together we can explore the feelings you have around these issues that are concerning you.  As your therapist, I am here to help you talk about those feelings and give you confidence in your own abilities to make the changes you want.

Each one of us is unique and the way I work with you will reflect that.  As well as talking, I am able to use various techniques such as visualisation, music and art to help you express feelings which can sometimes be difficult to put into words.  It’s all about what you feel comfortable with and what we agree together works for you.

If you are a parent/guardian looking for a therapist for your son or daughter can I suggest that you look at my profile together, include them in the process of choosing a counsellor, they will be much more likely to engage when we meet if it is a joint decision.

I offer a free introductory hour where we can talk together, you can ask me questions and I will do my best to answer them as fully as I can.  I can find out a bit about you and what brings you to therapy.  This will give us both the opportunity to decide whether we can work together.

I am based in the centre of Basingstoke close to public transport links and the M3, there is also free parking available.  My room is on the first floor, which unfortunately does not have disabled access.
