Feeling overwhelmed, anxious, depressed. Experiencing relationship difficulties ? BACP fully Accredited Counsellor, with over 8 years experience. I believe counselling should be accessible to all. Affordable Fees. Call 07757170425. Free 20 minute consultation to help you decide whether working with me could be helpful to you.
My counselling practice offers a comfortable space in Chandlers Ford. My aim is to create a peaceful space and provide a safe non-judgemental environment for you to come and talk freely about any concerns or difficulties. Talking through problems or concerns can help clarify and untangle mixed emotions which might be causing anxiety, stress or depression. I have many years experience working with adults, students and young people who are experiencing emotional, academic and relationship issues.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Why choose counselling?
Sometimes, it can be difficult to talk to family or friends, who might be too emotionally involved, or just simply unable to offer the right support for you and your needs.Therefore, allowing yourself the time and space to explore your feelings with an impartial professional, can alleviate some of the pressures one might experience within personal relationships.
