About me

Hello and a warm welcome to my profile. I am a BACP Registered counsellor offering face-to-face, online and telephone counselling for couples, adults and young people (16+) from locations in Romsey and Eastleigh. I offer a free initial 20-minute consultation for individuals and a half-price assessment for couples.

Couples counselling

My couples work is based on an eight-session therapeutic programme and involves a 60-minute assessment followed by eight fortnightly sessions, each lasting 75 minutes. Couples counselling is suitable for any couple – be it heterosexual, same-sex, or family, such as mother and daughter. Whether your relationship is under strain from unresolved conflicts, communication problems, life changes, or other difficulties, couples counselling can help you work through these issues, deepen your understanding of each other, and find a way forward.

Individual counselling

I can help with a wide range of issues, including anxiety, stress at work and at home, sadness and depression, self-harm, panic attacks, loss and bereavement, low confidence, relationship and family problems, abuse and traumatic experiences. I also deal with more general problems such as feelings of dissatisfaction with life, a lack of fulfilment and direction, or a sense of stuckness.

Counselling offers an empathic, confidential space that can help you develop a deeper sense of self-understanding, higher levels of optimism and of inner strength. My therapeutic approach is tailored to suit your individual needs and I always aim to work at a pace that feels right for you.

Alongside my private practice, I also provide counselling at Carers Together, a charitable organisation supporting carers in Hampshire.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
