You are here because you may be going through a stressful period of your life. Taking some time for yourself can be hugely beneficial in looking at what is troubling you. It is popular to consult with a personal trainer at the gym to improve your physical health, but how about taking charge of your emotional health by talking things through with your own personal counsellor and therapist?
We know that rates of depression and stress are on the increase (WHO) and sources of support can be minimal. Often the focus is on medication which, although may be useful for some, does not always address the underlying issues.
As your personal counsellor, I can offer you 1:1 therapy in a confidential space where you will be listened to without judgement so that we can explore your feelings together and think about a way forward that allows you to feel less burdened and overwhelmed with life.
Qualified counsellor experienced in providing 1:1 counselling and talking therapy sessions to adults and couples in and around the Hook and Basingstoke and Farnham areas. I have worked with a wide range of issues including anxiety, low self-worth and self-esteem, depression, bereavement and loss. Also relationship conflict within families, transitions to College/University etc, sexuality, self-harm and dealing with huge life changes e.g. serious health concerns, work issues, betrayals and divorce.
Alongside my private practice, I work in education with students facing tremendous anxiety with transitions to College/University and have particular experience of working with students on the autistic spectrum and those who struggle to find their way in life. I have worked for many years as a volunteer counsellor specialising in supporting adults in grief, trauma and complex family dynamics. I also have a special interest in early life trauma and how it can effect the body.
My counselling and psychotherapist practice is based in Worting House, Basingstoke and in the village of Odiham which is within easy reach of Basingstoke. Nearby villages which are a short drive or bus ride away are, Cliddesden, Chineham, Crondall, Crookham Village, Church Crookham, Elvetham Heath, Farnham, Fleet, Hartley Wintney, North Warnborough, Oakley, Overton, and Old Basing.
