About me

About me

Hello and welcome to my profile. I am a fully qualified counsellor providing in-person, online and telephone counselling sessions in Eastleigh.

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 or career 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.

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 am also 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.

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
