About me

Hello, my name is Christine. I am an Accredited Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. My area of expertise is with adults from the age 18 and upwards. I see clients on an individual basis only. 

I work as an Integrative Counsellor, which may include:Psychodynamic therapy, Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (R.E.B.T), Person centred therapy, Rewind Therapy, Gestalt, Creative approaches (using music, poetry, drawing, visualisation work, sand-tray therapy, Russian dolls, pictures, written work, metaphors), Trauma aware, Internal family systems aware, Transactional Analysis (T.A).

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained and completed a Diploma in Counselling, at Central Counselling and Training Services  (C.C.T.S.) Southampton (2018) and later qualified as a fully Accredited Counsellor in 2020, with the Association of Christian Counsellors (A.C.C). I also have a backgound working in the NHS for over 30 years and gaining  experience working in a multi-ethnic and multi-cultural community, as a nurse; so have insight and experience working with different areas of health and issues that can arise and mental health concerns that can present. 

I have worked as a counsellor for two charities over the past seven years, supporting general counselling issues in the local community of Southampton and also working with  pregnancy loss work in Winchester. I receive professional supervision every month and I am up to date with the Disclosure and Barring Service (D.B.S) status yearly. Please access my website for more information at .
