About me

Professional counselling in Chandlers Ford, Eastleigh, Romsey, Hedge End, Winchester & Southampton. No-cost initial assessment.

Hello, and thanks for visiting. I am Brian Mitchell BA (Hons) PGCE MBACP a qualified and BACP psychotherapeutic counsellor.

If you are experiencing difficulties in your life it can be really helpful to talk with a professional counsellor who provides a safe, confidential, non-judgemental space for you to explore your life and relationships with a view to positive change.

I work with adults and young people over 16 in areas like anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, depression, feeling hopeless or stuck, sexuality/gender, sadness, worry, stress, shame, anger, guilt, relationship issues, feeling sad, family issues, panic disorder, phobias,  separation and divorce, affairs and betrayals, couples/marriage, abuse, emotional abuse, child related issues, bereavement, loss, eating disorders, childhood suffering, abuse, trauma, low self-esteem, low self confidence, self-harming, poor sleep, searching for meaning and other concerns.

Choosing a counsellor can be a a bewildering experience. Research tells us the single most important aspect of successful therapy is the quality of the relationship between therapist and client. To this end I offer a no cost initial half hour assessment so we can explore your needs and for you to be sure you feel comfortable talking with me.

I invite you to meet with me in a relaxed, informal setting so we can talk. I will help you make better sense of your experiences, unfulfilling behaviours, negative thoughts, and confused feelings and emotions. Together we can recognize patterns, discover meanings and explore options.

If you would like to contact me to explore working together you can do so on 02380 271213 or 0750 4272724 or at

My practice is within easy reach of the M3/M27 and central and south Hampshire.
