About me

I have been privileged to have been able to help many adults, couples, families and employees with a wide range of issues since 2000, often succeeding with short term counselling. Having worked for Relate for many years, I now offer a private and confidential service from my home in the Neon Valley, convenient to Winchester, Petersfield, Fareham and Eastleigh.

Issues I have helped with include communication difficulties, bereavement, affairs, anxiety and depression.

I have also developed a more holistic approach to work with self esteem problems, assertiveness and self improvement, which helps people to live a happier and emotionally healthier life. I am enthusiastic about meeting people and passionate about helping them to achieve as much positive change in their lives as possible.

Many people experience difficult times at some point, when life seems like a struggle and you are left feeling powerless despite your best efforts. At such moments it can be enormously beneficial to talk to someone independent, positive and non judgemental, who has experience with helping others to resolve these difficulties as quickly and smoothly as possible.

My approach to helping is integrative so I am happy to adapt my style and the approach I use according to the needs of my clients. My training was in Psychodynamic theory, which focuses on uncovering our subconscious needs and emotions. I use the parent, adult and child model along with Systemic theory. I have recently added Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to my creative helping tools.

My practice is based in the comfort of my own home. I offer an initial session to talk through the problem and to decide the best way forward. This can involve either short term or longer term counselling.
