About me

When our thoughts and feelings seem confusing and overwhelming, it can be helpful to share what we are experiencing in a confidential and non-judgemental environment, which can give us the opportunity to explore and unpack what is being experienced.

Hello ... my name is Gina and I am a Humanistic Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I can provide counselling, coaching and psychotherapy both in the long and short term. In addition to traditional talking therapy I can also offer a creative way of working, which I have found is often useful when a client experiences a "stuckness".

Whatever your reason for seeking counselling, I strongly believe one of the key ingredients for therapeutic change to take place is the relationship you have with your counsellor. With this in mind, I offer a discounted rate of £25 for our first 50 minute session together which will form part of an assessment.

If required I can offer specific coaching support for clients wishing to lose weight and explore their relationship with food. I have many years experience working with weight loss clients, (since 2004) and have recently attended a Practitioner Skills Training course with the NCfED, (National Centre for Eating Disorders) to enhance my knowledge and work further when working with clients who are overweight or obese and wish to lose weight. You will find more information on my website or contact me directly by email at

I work from a private room at my home on the ground floor of my house near Fareham Town Centre, which many clients have said they find to be a peaceful and calm environment. My home is well placed for those seeking counselling or psychotherapy who live in the surrounding area such as Wickham, Knowle, Gosport, Portchester, Botley, Whiteley, Locksheath, Warsash and Titchfield, or even as far afield as Havant, Portsmouth and Southsea, Southampton and Winchester. My private practice is close to junction 10 off the M27. There is free parking which just outside on the drive! You will find more information about me and my practice on my website
