Counselling and Psychotherapy

What is Counselling and Psychotherapy?

There are times when life can be difficult or painful, leaving you feeling overwhelmed and alone. Perhaps you are experiencing a sense that things aren’t right and it’s a struggle to understand thoughts, feelings or situations. Maybe emotions are out of reach, creating a sensation of numbness or disconnection from yourself, your body or from others, therapy is rarely a quick fix - however, it is a way that can help.

Counselling offers the chance to explore what is happening for you within a safe environment and free from judgement. Psychotherapy is also non-judgemental and in a safe space, however, it may explore emotions and experiences held a little more deeply. Being fully trained in the Person-Centred approach means that Counselling and Psychotherapy merge, often indistinguishably.

I believe when awareness occurs through therapy, an explicit encounter with an inner you may arise. As within a safe, warm, therapeutic space, and away from judgement a process can unfold, that aids self-understanding, leading to realisations around issues or relationships, obstacles may then become visible, freeing blocked potential.

It is my intention as your therapist to facilitate clearing the way towards the fulfilling path that is yours, to enable trust in your own decision making. Ultimately, you are assisted to build confidence and establish a lasting self-belief.

Where to begin

I understand that to venture into Counselling and Psychotherapy may feel very daunting; I therefore offer an initial session, for you to see if it feels right for us to work together.

If you decide you would like to start, we will meet at the private therapy room situated within Pinnacle Performance Gym, at Hamble-Point Marina. I am happy to meet you just outside on your first session.

Pinnacle, Hamble Point Marina, on the outskirts of Hamble La Rice, the room is within easy reach of Netley Abbey, Bursledon and East Southampton.

The gym recognises that being healthy occurs as a whole; because, lasting health is significantly affected by emotion, habit and thought that persevere within you.
