About me and my therapy practice

There are times in life when we all need a little help to work through difficult feelings, thoughts, or experiences. Sometimes a chat over a cuppa with a friend or family member is sufficient, but other times we feel we cannot talk to those closest to us, or we need to talk to someone with some specific training. That's where counselling steps in!

I am a BACP registered counsellor offering professional counselling to adult clients regarding a wide range of issues. I have worked as a counsellor in agency settings in Watford and Winchester over a number of years, and prior to this I had some experience conducting annual reviews of the efficacy of therapeutic communities around the UK.

Although I have experience in working with a wide range of issues, I have special interests in working with clients who have experienced any kind of trauma or abuse, have a personality disorder diagnosis, or who are experiencing suicidal feelings, thoughts, or impulses. I have had specific training in using the CAMS (Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicidality) Framework to work with clients to manage, explore, and understand these thoughts, feelings, and behaviours.

I offer counselling in a quiet venue in Winchester city centre and currently have space on Mondays for new clients. Sessions last for 1 hour at a regular time for short or long term work, we will identify clear goals in our first session and we will review our work to ensure you are getting what you want and need from the time we have together. All sessions cost £45, however I am able to offer some concessions based on financial need.
