Counselling and stress management in Southampton

Creative CPD for therapists


Does something need to change?

Sometimes, despite our best efforts, we just get stuck.

We can work Face-to-face and online

While many people I work with live in Southampton, some also come from places like Winchester, Salisbury, Romsey, Portsmouth, Petersfield, the New Forest, Fareham, Eastleigh, Chandlers Ford, Basingstoke and Bournemouth. There’s free parking where we’d meet and good bus services to my practice. While I prefer working face-to-face with people, I also offer video appointments which gives flexibility and also enables us to work together if you live further away from Southampton.

It'd be good to hear from you, but please check my availability if you're thinking about arranging an appointment. I wish you well on your healing journey.
