Hi, welcome and thank you for viewing my profile page.
Emotional Distress shows up in many ways and can have a huge impact on our lives. It may cause sadness, depression, difficulties with relationships at home and at work. It may also impact on our self-worth and self esteem.
I understand that asking for help can be difficult, particularly for our mental health, although hopefully that is beginning to change with recent news items; particularly helped by Prince Harry believing that mental health must be taken seriously. There is a lot of power in being able to have a conversation with a counsellor when you know that anything you say will not be judged. It can be life changing. We all need help at times to deal with whatever life throws at us. As a Humanistic Counsellor, I can offer you professional face to face counselling, in a safe space where you can explore what might be troubling you. I will walk alongside you as we explore your thoughts and feelings to find the best way to support you. If you struggle to find the words, there are many creative ways to express thoughts and feelings.
I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and can help with a range of issues. I have over twenty years experience of working with people with a terminal illness and also working with the bereaved for those family and friends who are left behind.
I have comfortable rooms in Emsworth and Portsmouth, both with nearby Car Parks.
I believe that the relationship in therapy is extremely important and I therefore offer an initial free 30 minute consultation. This will help you to decide if I am the right counsellor for you.
A discounted fee is available for students, please contact me to discuss.
To arrange an appointment please e-mail me and I will contact you as soon as possible.
