I run my private practice from a comfortable and professional setting in Fareham, Hampshire.
I am a qualified counsellor based in Fareham offering Counselling and Psychotherapy for Southampton, Portsmouth and Surrounding Areas. There are many reasons why a person seeks therapy. We all experience times in our lives when we struggle and feel unable to cope. Difficult feelings such as unhappiness, loss, anxiety, anger, shame, guilt and low self-esteem can overwhelm us but it can be a daunting prospect to ask a counsellor for help. Whether it be stress, depression, loneliness, relationship issues or bereavement that you are experiencing, these feelings often need to be faced before we can move forward. Counselling provides the opportunity to explore and work through such feelings with an understanding professional. Together, we would work to understand present patterns of thinking and behaving to identify those which may be unhelpful and how they originated. Counselling can help you to feel less overwhelmed by your situation and feelings, leading to an increased freedom of thought and action, all of which helps in achieving an increased sense of well-being, purpose and direction in your life, to enable you to live life more fully.
As a counsellor based in Fareham, I provide professional counselling and psychotherapy to individuals aged 18 and over. I run my private practice from a comfortable and professional setting in the centre of Fareham. My experience also includes working within the NHS IAPT service, as well as counselling at two separate community counselling agencies in Hampshire, one of which employs me as a Personal Tutor to the trainee counsellors embarking on the diploma training course, accredited by The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
The Psychodynamic model of counselling underpins all of my work. Established and proven, it focuses on problem resolution and developing personal insight.
