About me

I am a Chartered Psychologist registered with the Health Professions Council and the British Psychological Society. I founded Hampshire and Surrey Psychology, a practice of experienced and qualified psychologists. Many of us have additional post-qualification specialisms so, if I am not an expert in your particular difficulty, then we will almost certainly have someone who is! We have appointments available in Petersfield, Hindhead (near Guildford and Haslemere) Alton, Southampton and Bognor Regis.

Following inital assessment, we are able to advise the most appropriate type of therapy for you. We offer Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Mindfulness based therapy, CAT, Schema therapy and Counselling.

Health and Care Professions Council

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

Wheelchair user access

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.
