Corine Hope, Dip.TA, MBACP - Counselling & Psychotherapy
Seeking therapy takes courage and finding the right therapist can be a daunting task. Perhaps a brief description of who I am, how I work and my beliefs of what effective therapy is, will hopefully be helpful for you in taking this initial step.
I am a fully qualified professional Therapist with over 10 years of experience working with adults on a one to one basis, in various locations, including my private practices in both Winchester and Southampton. I have experience in working short term but mainly work towards a longer lasting deeper change, working at your own pace, with an open-ended longer-term approach.
I belong to a Professional Body, The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, meaning that you can be reassured about my training and qualifications. It also means that I have agreed to follow its Ethical Codes and Standards and I undertake continuous training and development.
I am lucky to have benefited from a high quality accredited first training in Transactional Analysis Counselling. Over the years, through Supervision, Personal Development and additional training, my way of working has taken inspiration mainly from Psychoanalysis, Relational Psychodynamic approaches, Existential Philosophy and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy. Paramount to all of these is my belief in the importance of the quality of the Therapeutic Relationship; developing a trusting relationship while being aware of what happens between us is core to effective therapy.
Perhaps you would like to make changes to your life but are unsure of where to begin? We can work together to help identify patterns and themes of your view of the world and yourself in it. We can think about how past experiences may have impacted on your ability to cope and function. With acquiring greater insight, awareness and meaning, we can work towards breaking destructive patterns and gain resources which will help you cope with difficulties and make profound changes to your life and relationships.
