About me and my therapy practice

I realise that time and money is limited and so I like work in a solution-focused way with clients in 6- 8 sessions where possible. Working intensively with the issue that brings them to counselling. I pride myself on my warm and approachable personality and on building a good rapport with clients. Counselling is so much more than listening to a person. It is forming a unique working relationship that is empathetic,accepting, non-judgemental and genuine. This special relationship is instrumental in bringing about change for the client. To my work I bring a wealth of psychological knowledge and years of experience. I have particular experience working with young people and clients with mental health issues. I counsel in Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight. It is a great privilege to be a Counsellor and provide a safe place in the Counselling room where a client can talk about the issue or issues that are troubling them in confidence. And to be instrumental in helping a client bring about change in their life. I know it takes courage to come to counselling but I know every time a person does they move forward with their lives. I take great satisfaction in being able to help them do so.
