Welcome

Welcome to my website:

I am a professional and experienced  counsellor / psychotherapist practising in Hampshire. I believe that I offer a safe space where both Individuals and Couples can come to explore a range of issues, and where, through joint exploration, they can begin to find release, understanding and greater fulfilment from a range of short and longer term problems and difficulties in life.

My practice is located very close to Alresford, SO24, within easy reach of Winchester, Petersfield, Southampton, Alton and further afield. 

I have direct experience of working with clients suffering from the debilitating effects of anxiety and depression, difficulties with relationships, grief, loss and bereavement, sexual abuse, long-term illness such as cancer and also those findings themselves confronted with stage of life issues such as coping with young children, empty nest syndrome, feelings of isolation and problems relating to the work-place.

In addition to offering counselling and psychotherapy for adults, I also have relevant experience in working with teenagers and young adults. Areas I have specialised in range from problems relating to low self-esteem, anxiety and depression, eating disorders, drug and alcohol related issues, bullying, and areas linked to further education and careers.

I describe myself as ‘Integrative’ and ‘Reflective’ in approach – an ethos embedded in the training I have undertaken to-date, combined with many years of working with clients in Hampshire.

My counselling style is supported by CBT – Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, elements of TA – Transactional Analysis and Person-Centred counselling and psychotherapy, together with a clear focus on the need to create an empathic and therapeutic relationship with the client. According to your requirements I can offer short-term therapy, 6-12 sessions,together with medium-term and longer term psychotherapy.
