About me

I am a qualified Gestalt Counsellor offering face to face, online (zoom) and telephone sessions. My practice is located in Southampton city centre. I have had several years experience of seeing clients and have dealt with a wide range of issues.

Gestalt is a humanistic approach to counselling which focuses on our individual experiences and how we relate to others and our environment. It focuses on the 'here and now' and aims to raise awareness. With a greater awareness it can become easier to recognize and understand habitual patterns and behaviours allowing for natural change and growth.

​I offer a safe and professional environment for us to work together in. Everything in our sessions will be kept strictly confidential. I also feel it is of great importance that you, the client, feel respected, accepted, and free from any judgement. You will receive my full attention and care throughout the session, helping you to feel truly listened to.

​I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) which means I work in accordance to their ethical framework.

​I will work with a wide range of issues including but not limited to; anxiety, depression, addiction, stress, trauma, sexuality, phobias,and bereavement..

Member organisations


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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
