I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor, who is a registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).
I offer short and long term therapy for Portsmouth and surrounding areas.
As well as working from a very private and confidential office, I can come to your home for 'home visits', or can do walk and talk from a location of your choice.
In addition to my private practice I have a wealth of experience of working with children/young adults 11-25 years old.
During the initial enquiry you will you will have an opportunity to ask me anything that you are not sure about. We can explore whether we can develop a working relationship, and whether you can feel comfortable and safe to work with me.
First session consists of assessment and setting goals for therapy and agreeing on best times and dates for future sessions.
