About me

Welcome to my profile. I hope this overview helps you identify the skills you are looking for.

I have worked as a counsellor and psychosexual therapist for over 20 years, helping my clients overcome a wide range of problems.

For many people the first steps to seeking help takes the most courage. I believe that the therapeutic relationship of trust, respect and confidentiality between myself and my clients, and my flexibility to adapt to my clients needs, are the keys to a successful outcome.

My experience and training cover a broad area of counselling; particularly issues that cause dysfunction and distress within relationships. Whether as an individual or couple, I provide professional support and a safe environment where you can feel free to express yourself without fear of judgement.

My goal is for us to work together to reach a resolution that you are happy with.

EXPERIENCE:

From 1995 - 2005 I was an International Healthcare Provider running my own state registered private clinic.My clinic specialised in treating addictions and addictive behaviours. This period allowed me invaluable experience across a broad spectrum of emotional and behavioural problems. Many of my clients problems stemmed from sexual and relationship issues, as a result I chose to further develop my skills in these areas.

From 2005 and currently, I work as a private practitioner with individuals and couples who are seeking support in exploring and changing unhelpful attitudes, responses and behaviours that impact negatively on their sense of self belief and therefore relationships with others.

I also have a corporate level consultancy. Offering counselling, mediation and coaching for staff in crisis or conflict.

PRIVATE PRACTISE:

My private practise is based in a confidential and safe environment in The New Forest near Ringwood.

TESTIMONIALS:

"When I first met Penny I was at a very low point in my life. Penny helped me to understand and deal with the underlying issues that had evolved over a number of years, as well as many other problems and situations that arose during my time in therapy. She has helped me to take control of my life, and I am now in a good position - I have an enjoyable steady job, a successful relationship, and most importantly, I am happy."

"Penny has helped us put our relationship back on track. We now have improved communication between us, thank goodness! It has been a relief being able to put into practice what we have worked on during our sessions and see the positive results. Penny's input has been invaluable."

Member organisations

BACP

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy.

MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
