Counselling and stress management in Southampton
Creative CPD for therapists
Feeling powerless and adrift in your life and relationships.
Repeating habits that bring too much pain and disappointment.
Struggling with thoughts filled with emotions such as anger, shame, guilt, sadness and fear.
Feeling more hopeful and purposeful.
Learning vital lessons and living in a way that's better for you and others.
Befriending, understanding and being supported by your thoughts and emotions.
'Though you can't go back
and make a new beginning,
you can start from now and
make a brand-new ending'
While I've got many years of experience working with university students, graduates and early career professionals, I enjoy working with people of all ages and backgrounds. Wherever you come from, I'm interested in your story and exploring ways to help you move from stuckness towards freedom.
It'd be good to hear from you, but please check my availability and FAQs if you're thinking about arranging an appointment. I wish you well on your healing journey.
Get what you need
Counselling: Find out more about what therapy involves and how it could help you.
Creative exploration: While creative methods are just one part of the mix, they can enrich counselling in many ways.
Autogenic Therapy: A mindfulness-based approach to stress management you can learn as a separate course or integrate into ongoing counselling.
Energy psychology: Tapping or touching key acupressure points could help to promote balance and calm as part of therapy and as a valuable self-help practice.
Coaching: Strengths coaching may energise and guide your next steps and/or careers guidance could help you build a more fulfilling working life.
Hopeful words from some people I've worked with
'You were flexible, understanding and patient.'
‘Really valued being able to explore and understand things more.’
‘The intensity of anger I was feeling has lessened significantly.’
'I can cope better even though life is still very stressful.'
'A valuable experience which was a great help to me.'
Face-to-face and online support
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, I also offer video appointments which gives flexibility and also enables us to work together if you live further away from Southampton.
