About me

I am a qualified counsellor in the Eastleigh area, working with adults and young people from age 10.  I offer counselling for anxiety, depression, bereavement, chronic illness and trauma, as well as many other areas.  I can offer face-to-face and online counselling, flexible around shifts if required, and I aim to provide a safe, non-judgemental space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings.  Maybe you have been experiencing anxiety or a recent bereavement?  Perhaps you need some support following a traumatic event or coping with a chronic illness. 

It can be a daunting decision to start counselling, and I aim to help you in this process and work in a way that is decided upon in consultation with you and that is tailored to your needs. 
 
I have worked with families and young people in a variety of settings, and have experience of looked after and previously looked after children, and ADHD and Autism.  I have several years experience of working in the public sector, safeguarding families and supporting them through difficult times. I also counsel young people with a range of difficulties and challenges for a local charity, based in school.  

Life can be challenging and at times some extra support may be required.  Are you experiencing a difficult time at the moment or feel like you are at a crossroads in your life?

Counselling can help in many different situations and times of life. Please contact me if you would like to arrange an initial chat.
