What you need to know
Whilst searching for a counsellor you will be faced with a bewildering choice of qualified, registered and experienced counsellors, so how do you choose the right one for you? To aid you in your search for the right counsellor I offer an initial 30 minute consultation free of charge. This is not a counselling session but it will give you the opportunity to meet me and for you to ensure that you are comfortable working with me which is most essential. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have and if you are feeling anxious or nervous you will hopefully be reassured. Through the counselling relationship I offer a warm, supportive and non judgemental environment in which to explore difficult emotions. This will encourage a deeper personal insight into presenting problems facilitating personal growth and an enhanced ability to find resolutions to enhance your life and relationships.
Experience and professional qualifications
I am trained, qualified and experienced in helping clients with varied and multiple issues, and have been providing both long term psychotherapy, short term counselling and CBT to adults and couples for 10 years. Much of my experience has been gained whilst working in the National health service as a counsellor in and around the Southampton area and as a bereavement counsellor. In addition I have worked as a counsellor and case manager for an employee assistance programme providing counselling and stress management to employees in the workplace.

Counselling for individuals and couples
I have supported individuals who have experienced difficulties with the following issues:
Talking about your problems with a trained professional can offer you a new perspective and help you develop deeper insight into your thoughts, feelings and emotions. As a consequence of this many people find they are able to make better decisions for themselves and lead happier, more fulfilling lives.
Counselling can help you explore your relationship and feelings together in a non judgemental environment where you can both be heard equally. I will be unbiased and help to facilitate effective communication between you, so that you can resolve the differences and difficulties in your relationship together.
Counselling and Psychotherapy
Sometimes difficult feelings and life circumstances or events can take us by surprise and leave us feeling a bit lost or out of control. When you are experiencing a stressful or challenging time in your personal life, work life or relationship, talking to a professional counsellor/psychotherapist can help you make sense of things and make changes where appropriate.
My aim as a counsellor and psychotherapist is to help you achieve a happier more fulfilling life. Sometimes negative behaviours and feelings, or beliefs rooted in our past can prevent us from moving forward or making changes which would enhance our lives and relationships. This can lead to stress, anxiety and/or depression which can be confusing and upsetting. Counselling can help to reduce the distressing symptoms of depression, stress and anxiety such as panic attacks and leave you feeling more in control of your emotions.
