Andy Rogers - MBACP (Registered Member); PGDip Couns
I'm a fully qualified, highly experienced counsellor and counselling service co-ordinator, based in Basingstoke, Hampshire. My approach is a personal one, offering a respectful, thoughtful and non-judgemental professional relationship.
With over 20 years' experience as a counsellor, I have worked with a wide variety of people and concerns.
What is counselling for?
Counselling can be about better understanding your thoughts, feelings and relationships. It can be about changing how you feel about yourself or a situation, or finding new meaning in life. It might be about the past or the present, the loss of someone or something, dealing with traumatic experiences, or feeling stuck in ongoing circumstances, whether that's in work, family life, or just in how you feel in yourself.
It can be a place to find hope during difficult times, or somewhere to tackle a specific problem. If you feel stressed, anxious, depressed or confused, then counselling can often help.
Where do I work?
I work in a comfortable, quiet and discreet office in central Basingstoke, close to the shopping centre and bus/train stations. There is free parking.
What happens now?
Just get in touch (email, text or call is fine) and we can arrange an initial session.
Check my website for more information about counselling, how I work, and my fees. And if you have any questions, please let me know.

Training, qualifications & experience
I have 20 years' experience as a counsellor and psychological therapist. In 1999, I completed a BACP accredited Post-Graduate Diploma in person-centred counselling at the University of East Anglia and have since undertaken many other professional development activities.
Experience in a variety of settings, including an adult crisis centre, a youth counselling service, a university, a sexual abuse helpline, and a prison.
For many years I managed the counselling services for two Hampshire colleges of further and higher education, and now also run a private practice in Basingstoke.
Since qualifying, I have written regularly about the world of counselling and psychotherapy, publishing numerous articles, columns, reviews and book chapters. For two years I was Ethical Dilemmas editor for the journal Self & Society. You can see a list of some of my published work at my website.
