About me and my therapy practice

I am a Psychodynamic Counsellor working in Hampshire. I currently offer face-to-face counselling at Counselling@Unit12 in Winchester. When working at Counselling@Unit12, we are mindful of the current professional and Government advice regarding Covid-19 and adhere to various protocols to work in as safe a manner as possible. I also offer counselling on-line, via Zoom, if you are unable to work with me face-to-face.

If you are experiencing issues with anxiety, depression, stress, bereavement, abuse, relationship issues or a lack of confidence, I offer counselling where together we can get to the bottom of your difficulties and help you to understand yourself more clearly.

Psychodynamic Counselling can provide you with a confidential, non-judgmental 'space' to reflect upon and work through the issues you are facing.

Counselling requires commitment from us both, but gradually, over time, it can be a rewarding way to enable you to manage the issues that life throws your way.

Practice description

Confidentiality is integral to counselling and my aim is to provide you with a safe environment where you are not judged and free to discuss whatever is on your mind.

Our sessions take place at the same time, on the same day, in the same room each week and in doing so we hope to ensure safety and containment.

As part of our boundaries I will not answer direct questions, rather I will treat such questions like any other thought you may have.

Counselling can either be 'open-ended' long-term work or short-term with prior agreement.

My first session

The Initial Consultation provides an opportunity for you to discuss what has brought you to counselling and any relevant background information. We can also discuss what your needs and expectations of counselling are and determine whether psychodynamic counselling and me as your counsellor are suitable for you.

I can offer an Initial Consultation on the telephone for 30 minutes free of charge. If you prefer a face-to-face Initial Consultation, this will be charged at the usual sessional rate of £55 for 50 minutes.
