I am a Gestalt Therapist.
Working in the here and now, looking at patterns of behaviour, and how the past can impact on the present.
My counselling room is on the first floor of a lovely building in Southampton.
It's a safe, secure space that provides a confidential environment for you to express yourself freely and openly. In any way you feel comfortable, about any issues you have to deal with, without fear of judgement or offending and upsetting those closest to you; like your family, friends, work colleagues, or acquaintances.
A place where you're able to be honest with yourself about how situations or events affect you personally, where you can explore feelings, thoughts and emotions that can sometimes be hard to address. A place where you can share how you feel, about your wants, a place where it is all about you. Where your voice is the important one, your emotions , your thoughts are valid. A place you can find peace, to evaluate and process how life affects you.
Working with issues regarding all aspects of relationships, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, grief, traumatic events and any of life’s issues past and present that may be hindering you from living a happy and fulfilled life.
I do home visits for clients who require counselling, but are unable to come to my counselling room.
Online ( Zoom) Counselling, Phone or WhatsApp (Phone or FaceTime) Options are also available.
Face to Face with Social Distancing in place will be available from July 2020.

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.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
