About me and my therapy practice
BACP Registered Counsellor, Supervisor and EMDR Practitioner, on the Professional Standards Authority Accredited Register, offering therapeutic support to individuals age 19+. Based in the centre of Winchester, close to the railway station and free 2hour parking. Daytime and evening Practice.
My work has taken me to many countries and into many and varied cultural settings. I am in my 50s and bring a wealth of both life and professional experience to my work as a Counsellor.
People consider coming to counselling for many different reasons and there is no threshold for the difficulty or pain you may be experiencing for coming along to explore what might feel right for you. Some people will consider a few professionals or types of support before deciding what feels comfortable at any time and I would encourage this.
I offer both short-term and long-term weekly sessions for individuals in Winchester and co-conduct a therapy group at a charity in Southampton for those affected by childhood sexual abuse. I do appreciate that everyone has a life outside of the counselling room and recommend that clients attend weekly, in order to get the most out of counselling. Inevitably there will be some interruption for breaks and unexpected events. We can discuss your commitments and agree a plan together.
There is no 'one size fits all' to how I work with clients. Developing a mutual and trusting relationship is a key foundation to getting the most from counselling. I am trained in different therapeutic models and will integrate my experience and skills to ensure that I work with you in a way that pays attention to and appreciates you as an individual. My specialist areas are trauma and stress - please feel free to read more about my training and experience at my website: www.qdm.eu.com.
