About me and my therapy practice

About me

Hi. I'm Bernadette, a qualified and experienced person-centred counsellor in Southampton and the New Forest area.

Following over 20 years' experience working within the NHS, I now work for two well known charities supporting those with life limiting illness and bereavement, along with a local charity supporting both victims and survivors of domestic and sexual violence, whilst also running my own successful private practice.

I offer an understanding and empathic safe space and environment to facilitate your personal growth and support you whilst navigating life's challenges without judgement. This service can be accessed face-to-face or online via Zoom. I also offer 'walk and talk' within Southampton and the New Forest.

I have experience of working with couples and relationship concerns, young people, adults and older adults, whilst embracing diversity and inclusivity.

I understand that engaging in counselling can be difficult. With this in mind, I offer a free initial 30 minute consultation via telephone or Zoom to give you the opportunity to make an informed choice on the best way forward for you.

I am committed to the BACP ethical framework and maintain continued personal development and supervision to ensure safe practice for both myself and clients.

Your confidentiality and privacy is paramount. I comply with GDPR and am registered with the ICO.

Whilst my premises incorporate a lift they unfortunately do not allow for wheelchair access.

Restrooms are available on site.

Roadside parking and surrounding car parks are available nearby.
