Counselling and stress management in Southampton

Creative CPD for therapists


Healing possibilities

Sometimes, despite our best efforts, we can just get stuck. Maybe you're feeling powerless and adrift in your life and relationships, repeating habits that keep bringing too much pain. Or perhaps you're struggling with thoughts filled with emotions like anger, shame, sadness and fear.

Whatever's brought you here, counselling could help you find your way to a greater sense of balance, hope and meaning.

It might help you learn important lessons and live in a way that's not only better for you but also positively enriches key relationships.

I offer both talk therapy and creative counselling. You may benefit from Gestalt Acu-balancing or Autogenic Therapy as practical ways to help you manage stress and I'm also experienced in strengths and career development coaching.

Based in a quiet location in Bitterne SO19, I see people from Southampton and many parts of Hampshire. There’s free parking and good bus services to my practice. I offer video appointments which gives flexibility if you're local and also enables us to meet if you live in another part of the UK and mainly want to work online.

I wish you well on your healing journey and am here if you want to talk anything through.
