About me

About me

Hello and thank you for visiting my profile. I am a fully qualified counsellor providing in-person, online and telephone counselling sessions.

I offer a calm, confidential and safe space within which we can explore and work through the difficulties you are facing. I am experienced in dealing with a wide range of issues, including anxiety, stress, depression, loss and bereavement, low confidence, relationship and work problems, abuse, and trauma. I tailor my therapeutic approach to suit your individual needs and circumstances.

How can counselling help?

If you are currently troubled by unwanted thoughts, having difficulty getting motivated, or feel that you are not getting what you want out of life or relationships, then counselling may be of benefit to you.

Counselling can also be preventative, you don’t need to wait until you are struggling, it can be part of your self-care and mental health maintenance.

Please take a look through my website www.tpcounselling.co.uk for more details.

Training, qualifications & experience


Dip(He) Humanistic Gestalt Counselling

I am a qualified counsellor. I work as an independent therapist and in the voluntary sector, which allows me to work with a wide range of people. I have also been a trustee for a local counselling charity, and feel that this gives me a range of perspectives on how to provide the best therapy for my clients.

Prior to training as a counsellor, I spent over 20 years working in business. I can use this experience to help you to look at difficulties you are facing at work or in your career. I also have a wide variety of life experiences, so I understand the challenges that life can present you with.

Member organisations


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.

Further information

Please contact me to discuss what you would like to achieve from therapy. If you are happy we can set up an initial session.  Sessions are initially weekly thereafter.

I practice Gestalt therapy, which places emphasis on increasing awareness of the here and now. Therapy may help people discover feelings that may have been suppressed or masked by other feelings and to accept and trust their emotions.

I am based within easy reach of Winchester, Southampton, and Eastleigh, just of the M3.
