About me

Professional  ONLINE 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 www.bacp.co.ukregistered 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,couples,  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 brianmitchellcounsellingcf@gmail.com

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

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
