About me

Hello and welcome,

I am an experienced, fully qualified Integrative counsellor and registered member of the BACP.  I offer counselling in a safe, non-judgemental and confidential environment to help you explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, which may be negatively affecting your life.

As an Integrative counsellor I use theoretical concepts drawn from the major approaches, treating the unique person holistically.  I do believe it is the relationship between client and counsellor that determines the success of counselling.

I offer both short and long term counselling.

Introductory session £50

On-going weekly session £50

Each session lasts for 50 minutes and it is beneficial to meet on a weekly basis.  The amount of sessions required varies and some people like to have a set amount and others prefer to work on an open-ended basis.  We can discuss this and together agree what would be best for you.

As well as working in private practice, I also work in the charity sector for a counselling service in Hampshire.
