Claire Le Quesne
I offer long term therapy and short-term solution focussed therapy to adults over the age of 18 and have a specific interest in depression, anxiety, the underlying causes of difficult relationships and self-harm. I am a qualified BACP counsellor, and work with adults and young people as a member of staff at well-known counselling services. My private practice is based in a lovely rural location that's easily reached by car from Alton, Petersfield, Portsmouth and Winchester.
I believe in the research that suggests that the relationship between the client and therapist is the key to the successful outcome, rather than the particular model of therapy being practised. Psychodynamic counselling hopes to make the unconsious consious and looks at how past and present events, challenges, relationships and traumas have affected you and continue to influence your state of mind and behaviour. It is an equal partnership, in which together we will carefully and sensitively explore your feelings, thoughts, memories and dreams. We will work to discover the underlying causes of whatever is troubling you, and hopefully help you to greater self-awareness, so that you can manage the challenges ahead. All our work is confidential.
I do not have wheelchair access. Onsite parking available.

This is an opportunity for you to get a sense of what therapy is like, ask questions and consider if you could work with me. Sessions thereafter cost £45 an hour. We would meet weekly at the same time for a duration of time agreed and decided upon by you. The length of therapy varies.
