20 Romsey Road
I am a fully qualified and experienced psycho-therapeutic counsellor. I currently work in private practice in three locations; Eastleigh, Winchester, West Wickham as well as the NHS providing counselling services for service users and a charity organisation.
I have worked in differing environments including general practitioners, rape crisis and mental health providing a vast range of experience. I specialise in helping people overcome a variety of issues including anxiety, bereavement, generalised anxiety disorder, stress, depression, panic disorder, addiction, trauma, mental health, relationship issues, couples counselling and health issues.
Many of us have problems or issues that slow us down or stop us functioning altogether in our lives. This could relate to one interaction or it may be a pattern for us where the normal coping skills and resources we use stop working for us as well as they did.
Sometimes we may not have any idea why we are feeling different it could be something about us just 'doesn’t feel right'.
Gestalt Therapy is a Humanistic Therapy, which incorporates the whole of the person as one, the mind, emotions, and bodily sensations integrating together; helping to enable awareness of oneself. Exploring together, in a safe, professional, confidential, and non-judgmental environment, the issues that have brought you to therapy enables you to find your own inner resources for changes and personal growth.
