About me and my therapy practice

I am based in the Hamble/Netley Abbey area of Southampton and provide supportive, non judgemental counselling. I have been in private practice for a number of years now and work with people of all ages, races, sexualities and genders and with a wide range of issues. I have extensive specialist experience in working with alcohol and other addictions, domestic and sexual abuse and young people but I also work with a very wide range of other issues including anxiety, depression, sexuality, bereavement and eating disorders to name but a few.
In terms of working for agencies I have over 5 years' experience in a drugs and alcohol agency and I currently work for a well respected local charity dealing with domestic and sexual abuse.  I also work for a children's home and school specialising in helping young people from traumatic backgrounds and affected by school exclusion.  In addition to my general counselling qualifications I also hold an advanced certificate in couples counselling.  
I work with individuals and couples face to face and by telephone or skype/facetime.
My fee for an individual face to face session is £45, couples counselling is £55, for students undergoing counselling training the fee is £40.  For clients referred by employee assistance programmes I charge a surcharge of £5 per session which helps to cover my increased costs in respect of monitoring and invoicing.
