Wendy Morris MBACP Senior Accredited Counsellor/Psycotherapist
I am a person centred therapist and happy to work with any concerns or anxiety that you may be experiencing in your life. I am non-judgemental and offer time, space and confidentiality for you to explore your needs, whatever they may be. These may include depression, anxiety, relationship issues, work, family or health related concerns or anything else you wish to bring.
I am happy to work either open ended, long term or briefly for 6 - 12 sessions, according to your requirements and budget.
I qualified in 1989 and worked initially with disadvantaged young people and later became a school counsellor in Hampshire secondary and primary schools. I have since worked in the NHS and private practice.
I work with Adults, Children and Young People and Couples and have a full DBS.
I work in a quiet and comfortable room in Fleet, Hampshire and receive client referrals through Self referral, Employment Assisted Programmes, Health insurance, Social Services, Adoption agencies and GP's.
I use a variety of theoretical approaches which are dependent on the individual's needs. These include: Person Centred, Rogerian, Transactional Analysis (TA), Cognitive Behavioural (CBT), Solution Focused (SFT), Emotional Freedom (EFT), Relational, Gestalt, Sand tray & Play therapy (mainly with my younger clients).
I am a Senior Accredited member of the BACP and abide by their code of ethics and, in accordance with their policies, I have regular consultative supervision. This ensures that I fully meet the needs of my clients and offer them the best service possible. I also hold full public liability insurance.
The first time that we meet is an exploratory session to ensure that you feel happy and comfortable to work with me and that I feel that I have the experience and skills to work with your concerns. I look forward to meeting you.

I began my career in Social work when my own 3 children were growing up in the 1980's and became a Miscarriage supporter with the NCT in 1982.
I started my counselling training in 1985 and it is an ongoing training as I am fascinated with the human mind and behaviour. I have studied extensively to work with children but also work with adults and families.
I am a specialist adoption worker having undertaken training through Barnados LINK and accept referrals from anyone with issues around adoption.
