I am a qualified Counsellor and member of BACP and an accredited registered member of the National Counselling Society.
I am aware how daunting coming to counselling might be, what if you have nothing to talk about, what if you don't want to talk about anything that might upset you? That's okay. I work with what you want to bring to a session I work in the here and now whilst respecting and acknowledging that the past has influenced who you are today. .I offer open ended or time specific counselling. This can be agreed at the beginning of our relationship, but can also be reviewed on a regular basis to ensure that you are happy with your choices. It is important for the relationship that you feel a connection with me, as this is a relationship where you may be sharing things about yourself that you have never shared with anyone else, it is important that you feel safe with me and that you can trust me.
Counselling is about talking about the things you need to talk about, there is no easy solution, but what I hope to offer is a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment in which to explore those issues that may sometimes feel too over whelming. Or your need may be to have somewhere to talk and be heard without interruption and without judgement or criticism. I am here to facilitate the changes that you wish to make and if you don't want to make changes, then I am here to listen.
I work with adults, adolescents (13+) and couples. I am based between Salisbury, Romsey and The New Forest and can offer free parking.
