About me

There are times when we feel we have difficulties that are hard to sort out on our own. Although you may have a wide circle of family and friends, they may be too close to you or even part of the problem; so talking to me as an independent Counsellor can provide an opportunity to explore things and make sense of what is happening. Counselling is confidential so you can safely express your feelings and talk about what troubles you. The aim of counselling is to try and help you sort out and untangle your feelings and worries.

There are many reasons why someone might want to come to counselling such as depression, stress, anxiety, bereavement, relationships, work, anger or simply just feeling lost. Whatever your reason for coming, as an counsellor  I am trained to help you explore your issues and to help you to work out ways of living your life more positively and constructively.

Taking the first step to seeking counselling may sometimes seem confusing and difficult. I offer a free, 30 minute 'taster' session where we can explore what you would want from counselling and how we could work together towards this. My private practice is in Portchester, easily reached from Fareham, Waterlooville, Cosham, Gosport and close to the motorway from Portsmoth, Havant and Southampton.

My practice is ICO registered and fulfils the requirements of the GDPR 2018
