Are you suffering with stress, depression or anxiety? Are you unsettled since being in Lockdown? Do you have unresolved issues in your life that are holding you back? Perhaps talking to a counsellor is the move for you!
I am a humanistic Gestalt counsellor that provides a friendly and professional counselling service who is experienced in working with a range of presenting issues including, anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, grief and relationship difficulties. One area that I specialise in is autism spectrum disorder and my sessions are autism friendly.
I offer short term and long term, online or telephone counselling sessions to adults of all ages within the UK. I also offer sessions face to face at my private practice, in Fareham, Hampshire. Sessions are available Monday-Friday 9am-5pm and some evening and weekend appointments available.
It is important that we can establish a connection so you feel able to work with me to explore your concerns and therefore I spend time with you initially to develop our working relationship. I offer a free 20 minute phone consultation to help you decide if I am the 'right' counsellor for you.
Through listening to you I aim to personalise your counselling sessions to meet your individual needs. I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space in which to share and explore your concerns, using psychological education and helping you to normalise, understand and manage your experiences. The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) ethical framework is followed.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a degree and a master's in psychology and I am a qualified Gestalt Counsellor. As a gestalt counsellor I work with you in the here and now by focusing upon the ‘what’ and the ‘how’ of your experience. I do not neglect your past or your future, but instead, ask you to consider the impact that your past or future has for you within the present.
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.
