About me and my therapy practice

Do you want something to change but don't know what or how?  Feeling lost, overwhelmed or confused?  I am here for you to talk through what is going on for you, to make sense of your thoughts and feelings.

Perhaps you need breathing space, some time to talk through your thoughts and feelings. Life can be stressful, making you feel tired and overwhelmed. I work with you, to help you make sense of things, for you to get a better understanding of yourself and why you behave like you do.  It can be difficult to talk sometimes, I can help you.  

I work in a warm, compassionate, non-judgemental way with you setting the pace and talking about what you want. I can help with such things as relationship issues, family problems and loss.

We can work in an open-ended way or agree to a limited number of sessions in a focussed way.  


Practice description

I am a qualified counsellor based in Portsmouth.   My room is easily accessible, close to rail and bus links.

 If you would like to talk to me about your relationships, family, loss, or whatever is going on for you, then drop me an email or give me a call. I promise to listen and to hear you in confidence.

My first session

I offer a free 15 minute telephone call where you can give me a brief outline of what has brought you to counselling.  It will also give you an opportunity to ask questions and to get an idea of whether I am the right counsellor for you.  I will ask you some questions and ensure that I have the right experience for you.

Following this, you can book an appointment with me or you can have a think about it.  

The first session will be about getting to know each other and further expanding on what you told me in our telephone call.   I will ask for contact details, if these were not taken during our call.  I will also ask for any other information that is relevant, for example your family history.  I will go over my counselling agreement and privacy notice to ensure you understand and consent.

If you have any questions about the first session, please email me.
