About me

About my practice

Welcome. I offer a professional therapy service for both adults and teenagers, working with; stress and anxiety, self esteem and self worth, relationship issues and loss and grief. I have worked with many clients through times of struggle and uncertainty including  loss of a loved one, relationship breakdown and illness. I support individuals facing employment  challenges ranging from promotion, relocation and redundancy to handling conflict and improving communication.

My professional experience is underpinned by an Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling. I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy  "MBACP"and  I am also qualified in Hypnotherapy which I can offer as an additional tool if it is of benefit when working with particular issues and clients.

How counselling can help

There are inevitably times in our lives that are problematic and we may find we feel less than equipped to deal with the challenges we are presented with. Though this is common to most of us, it is not uncommon to feel quite alone and unsure where to turn at such times. You may be reading this as you face a particular issue, dilemma or situation you can readily identify that you know is the cause of your worry or distress. Perhaps you are suffering with intrusive thoughts or negative thinking patterns and difficult feelings that are impacting on your emotional wellbeing. Whatever your situation, we can explore it together, and agree how we might work to find the best way forward for you.

Counselling offers a positive intervention that can be both rewarding and satisfying at times in our life when we most need it. Having the right support can help us gain a wider perspective on our difficulties, this clarity can often help us begin to feel better quite quickly.

Further information

What to expect in your first session and beyond

It is a very personal experience working with a counsellor. Creating and maintaining an open, supportive and friendly relationship with you, free of any judgement, is my first working priority. It is this positive relationship that will enable us to work well together, so you can experience real benefits within your timescales.

Our work will be at a pace and level that feels right for you. As you move through the counselling process you will undoubtedly gain a deeper understanding of your inner thoughts and feelings. This clarity and insight can bring healing. It can also pave the way towards personal problem solving, leading in some cases to significant and lasting change.

Practical  Information

An initial 30 minute no obligation, non-chargeable consultation in person or via skype or phone is available. Individual sessions last 60 minutes and we would aim to have regular sessions over a period of time. There is no set length of time for this, for example an individual might benefit from short term solution focused counselling (approx. 6-12 sessions) or prefer a longer term approach, perhaps to explore the self in more depth or work with a longer term issue (up to 6 months or longer).

I work out of my home in a dedicated consulting room, which is situated in a quiet countryside location easily accessible from the  M3 motorway and approximately 7 miles from Basingstoke, Alresford and Alton.  I have plenty of off road parking. I work a range of hours including daytime, evenings and weekends.
