About me

'About me and the way I work'

Welcome to my profile. I am a qualified and experienced counsellor working privately covering the area of Eastleigh, Chandlers Ford and Bishops Waltham. In addition to my private work I also practice at a counselling service in Winchester supporting people with a wide range of issues e.g. Loss & bereavement, divorce, family breakdown, adoption, relationship problems, sexual problems, addictions, cancer & long-term illness, anxiety, depression, work issues, obsessive compulsive disorder, etc.

I trained in Gestalt / Humanistic counselling and with experience have adapted this to a more integrative approach using a range of methods appropriate to client needs. I use practical interventions during counselling such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Transactional Analysis (TA) or Mindfulness alongside my Gestalt creative approaches.

'What to expect in your first counselling session'

We discuss your needs and expectations at our first counselling session and I will review regularly to ensure counselling continues to be of benefit to you. This can be short or long term therapy.  My initial session is at a discounted rate of £25.

'Why people choose counselling'

People come to counselling for many different reasons and at various times in their lives, often at times of despair or in times of suffering. They come not knowing who to turn to or who could possibly help them. We can all feel hopeless and isolated at such times. You may feel alone yet often other people share similar experiences. As a counsellor I can stand alongside you and offer strategies and practical tools to guide you and give you the encouragement, help and support you are seeking.

'How counselling can help you'

Given life's challenges I will offer you the time and space you deserve to talk and share your situation and experience. As a warm and caring person I will listen to you empathically with an open and non-judgemental manner in a safe and confidential environment offering you a trusting therapeutic relationship.

Counselling is about empowering you to take a journey of self discovery as we explore together who you really are, how life has affected you and explore your feelings, thoughts and behaviours. This Raises awareness about yourself and how you make sense of your world and your connections to the people around you.  Enabling you to develop a new perspective on your life, see things afresh, having the ability to choose, learn new ways of 'being' and cope better with your difficulties. I believe as individuals we have the capacity to grow and strengthen using our inner resources. My desire is to facilitate this process and enable you to have a greater sense of well-being and live a satisfying life.
