About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced Registered and Accredited Counsellor working in Horndean, Waterlooville. I offer short and long term as well as time-limited counselling to individuals, couples and young people. I have worked within a variety of settings within the community including working in Higher Education. 

My core approach is Humanistic integrating Person-centred counselling, Gestalt and Transactional Analysis depending on your needs. In addition I can offer brief and solution focus therapy. 

I have a BA(Hons) in Humanistic Counselling, Edexcel Level 5 BTEC Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and  Advanced Certificate in Relationship Therapy/Couples Counselling.

 I offer a safe, supportive and confidential space in which I work alongside you at your own to take steps to explore your thoughts and feelings concerning past and present issues. Thus enabling you to gain understanding, find resolution and a way to move forward. In addition to the ‘talking therapy’, creative materials may also be used (if you choose), to help you connect with and communicate ideas and emotions that may be difficult to express.

My practice is close to the A3M, A27 and M27. It is in easy access of Waterlooville, Petersfield, Havant, Portsmouth and the surrounding towns and villages. 

I offer an initial 50 minute session at a reduce rate of £20/£30. My standard fee for ongoing counselling is £50 for individuals and £70 for couples. Concessions are available, please ask.

Reduced rates are offered to student counsellors.
