About me

There are times in our lives, as a child or an adult, when we find we are struggling and we need someone to talk to in confidence, without the fear of being judged.  I provide a warm, confidential environment, where you have the opportunity to be listened to and to explore some of the difficulties you may be experiencing.

Loneliness, helplessness and confusion are often feelings that affect people on a daily basis and also affect those around us. Talking to a counsellor can help you gain an understanding as to why things feel as they do and to find new ways of coping, in order that you can feel more in control of your future.   

About Me:

I am a qualified BACP Senior accredited counsellor and also a qualified supervisor.  I work with both Adults, Children & Young people (from aged 7).  I have now been practicing for 20 years - 16 years of this experience has been working with young people (between ages16-18) within an education environment whilst also working with adults and younger people in private practice.   During the last six years I have also been working with younger children (from aged 7) using the medium of play to support them through different anxieties, low mood and self-esteem issues.  I have  also worked for two  charity organisations  as a group supervisor providing group support and supervision to counsellors in training.    I have a successful private practice based in Landford and also Romsey, working with both children and adults (located within easy reach of Chandlers Ford, New Forest and  Salisbury.) 

The way I work:

Depending on your situation and concerns I offer both short-term and open ended counselling.
Short term (6-12 sessions) is useful for particular difficulties such as panic attacks, anger management, anxiety and exam/work stress.

Open Ended is helpful for issues such as depression, grief, low self-esteem.

Counselling for Children and adolescents

When working with children and adolescents I use a number of different approaches to help explore their feelings and support them in developing healthy coping strategies for any difficulties - now and also in the future.  This type of therapy can help children and adolescents with the following :

Separation Anxiety                                          School Difficulties

GAD (generalised anxiety disorder)                 Relationship struggles              Excessive Worry                                               Self-Harm
Family Breakdown                                           School/College/University transitions
Grief and Bereavement                                    Sleeping Difficulties
Low Self-Esteem                                              Suicidal thoughts

And Lots More....

What to Expect from Counselling;

Beginning counselling for a young child, adolescent or an adult, can feel a scary process so having a little information about how counselling works maybe helpful.  Counselling can help you make sense of difficulties that you may be experiencing and can provide a regular space where you can talk through how you are feeling.  By going through this process you can learn new coping techniques and gain further understanding with the aim of helping you move forward.

How do I know if counselling is the right for me?;

You never know unless you try....but only you can decide.  Counselling is there for anyone who is facing difficult times, needing support or guidance or just needing someone to talk to.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Exam Stress and Student Anxiety

Exams and Transitions to College and University are a part of everyday life but can be challenging for both students and parents.  A struggle to cope can trigger reactions from irritability, issues around eating, sleep deprivation or being tearful and panicky.

Whilst talking will not make the exams or transition go away, having someone to talk to about their anxiety and concerns can help and enable them to keep things in perspective.
