About me

I am a fully qualified Gestalt Counsellor based in Romsey and Winchester, within easy access of Chandlers Ford, Eastleigh, Southampton and surrounding areas. I offer individual counselling for adults and young people within a professional, safe and confidential setting with free parking.

I believe that humans beings just want to be happy, at ease with themselves and their environment - I know I do! Yet there are times when this seems to elude us either because of, or causing difficulties in our personal and professional lives. Sometimes we are able to resolve these difficulties ourselves or with the support of friends and family. However, for times when this process is not sufficient or possible, the therapeutic relationship counselling offers can be a positive and helpful experience.

I have experience of working with clients presenting with issues such as anger, anxiety, low mood, depression, low self-esteem, stress, self-harm, cancer, divorce, relationship issues, work-related stress and loss and bereavement.
