Hello and a warm welcome to my profile. I am a fully qualified, experienced MBACP (Reg) counsellor providing in-person, online and telephone counselling sessions from locations in Romsey and Eastleigh. I offer a free initial 15 minute consultation.
I offer a confidential, safe space within which we can explore and work through the difficulties you are facing. I am experienced in dealing with a wide range of issues, including anxiety, stress, depression, self-harm, loss and bereavement, low confidence, relationship and family problems, abuse, and trauma. I tailor my therapeutic approach to suit your individual needs and circumstances, and work at a pace that feels right for you.
How can counselling help?
People come to counselling for many different reasons. Some may need help to deal with specific issues, such as self-defeating behaviours, relationship problems, or significant life changes. Others may be struggling with general feelings of dissatisfaction, inner conflicts, or a lack of fulfilment or direction. Counselling helps to clarify, process and resolve these difficulties. In addition, clients often report developing a deeper sense of self-understanding, as well as higher levels of optimism and of inner strength.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
