About me

Hi, my name is Celia, I am a qualified counsellor who specialises in working with Children, Teenagers and Young Adults. I am based in the centre of Basingstoke close to public transport links and the M3, there is also free parking available.  My modern and confidential room is on the ground floor and has disabled access.

Over the years I have helped clients with a variety of issues including anxiety, anger, bereavement, low self-esteem, relationships and self-improvement to name a few.

I strongly believe that we are all essentially "OK" but that life can throw many things at us that cause us to believe we are not. Together we can talk about what has left you feeling less than "OK" and find a way back to a place of self-confidence and belief.

What can you expect when you come to see me?

I will listen to you without judgement, I won't tell you what to do but give you confidence in your own ability to make the changes you want to see.  The therapeutic relationship that we form will be an important part of the work we do together, once you feel relaxed and able to trust me you will be more open to exploring those parts of you that you have kept protected and hidden but are causing you pain or getting in the way of your relationships with those around you.

Each one of us is unique and the way I work with you will reflect that.  As well as talking, I am able to use various techniques such as visualisation, music and art to help you express feelings which can sometimes be difficult to put into words.  We can explore these different techniques and find what works for you.       

Taking the next step...

If you are a parent/guardian looking for a therapist for your son or daughter can I suggest that you look at my profile together, include them in the process of choosing a counsellor, they will be much more likely to engage when we meet if it is a joint decision.

I offer a free introductory 30 - 45 minute session which will give you the opportunity to ask me questions about therapy and how it can help you achieve your aim.  I can also find out about you and what brings you to therapy.  This will give us both the opportunity to decide if we can work together.

I am based in the centre of Basingstoke close to public transport links and the M3, there is also free parking available.  My modern and confidential room is on the ground floor and has disabled access.
