Judy White Reg MBACP (Amaryllis Counselling)
Are you struggling with life? Counselling is often a step you can take to help you find hope and healing. I offer counselling in a safe, welcoming and private room in central Eastleigh. Coming from a Nursing and Midwifery background (I was a midwife for 30 years), I have a particular interest and expertise in issues around pregnancy, childbirth and fertility. Are you struggling with post-natal depression or anxiety following a traumatic delivery? Or perhaps you are devastated after losing a baby, or struggling with life following an abortion. Please get in touch, I can help. Depending on the issues you face, short-term counselling may be all you need to bring you to a better place emotionally. However, if you have deeper, long-standing issues of trauma or abuse, longer-term psychotherapy will enable you to understand yourself and begin to move forward. After working in various charity-based organisations, I have wide experience in most aspects of general counselling such as generalised anxiety and depression, but also have particular skills around loss (bereavement, divorce and relationship issues, coping with cancer or a difficult diagnosis, and caring for someone with disability or dementia). I am also keen to see relationships enhanced and restored if possible, and am enjoying working with couples. Whatever your reason for coming to counselling, you will find I provide a friendly, confidential, supportive relationship and a safe space, to help you find a way forward. I offer a reduced price initial session which is your opportunity to see if you feel at ease with me and if what I can offer is likely to meet your needs.
