I am a warm and empathic person, offering a safe and comfortable space for you to be attended to in depth and with compassion. I am situated in the centre of Winchester.
I work with all Adults (18+)
In my approach I am guided by Humanistic values and a deep respect for the power of the individual to grow and develop when provided with a secure therapeutic relationship. I believe that it is possible for you to deepen your understanding of yourself through exploration of feelings and experiences, always going at the right pace for you.
I can offer both short (six sessions) and longer term, open ended counselling.
I have trained in Transactional Analysis and draw upon many of the concepts and theories from this approach, and also use Integrative, Humanistic, Person Centred and Mindfulness in my work. I qualified in 2017 and have been working in a voluntary capacity at The Olive Branch, Winchester for the last three years alongside my private practice. I have also completed a training with Jan Day, called 'The Art of Being' which focussed on intimacy and sexuality within relationships.
I have experience of working with issues of bereavement, relationship difficulties, trauma, depression, work place issues, and attachment difficulties. I am interested and have experience of working with those who have emotional difficulties connected to having attended boarding school.
Please feel free to phone or e mail me should you have any questions about the counselling I can offer.
