Hello, my name is Colette,
Life is unsettling. Everyone’s lives have been tilted sideways and you can’t help wondering what may change next. Things we took for granted no longer seem guaranteed – everything seems wobbly. It’s like this for us as individuals, and for the people we love and support. Our relationships are under strain – our self-confidence is unsteady – we wrestle with containing our worries… Sometimes it really does get too much.
Whether you had things murmuring at the back of your mind before the pandemic, or stuff has begun to get the better of you more recently, talking it over with a professional counsellor can make a rapid and lasting difference to how you feel and your ability to take on and deal with what’s in your head.
I’ve been a qualified counsellor for ten years and I’m a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists). I work with young people (16yrs+) and adults in both short term (solution focused) and long term therapy. I approach my work with warmth and compassion and am experienced in a wide range of issues.
My background is in TA (Transactional Analysis) and I work relationally, which means that the work we do is collaborative and guided by you to go at your own pace.
I’m meeting people face to face in my counselling room in central Winchester. It incorporates thorough anti-virus precautions. Sessions last 50 minutes and fees are £50.
Please contact me via my email. I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
