Counselling and therapy in Landford, near Romsey and Salisbury
There are times in our lives, whether we are a child, young person or an adult, when we find we are struggling and we need someone to talk to in confidence, without the fear of being judged. I provide a warm, confidential environment in Landford and Romsey, where you have the opportunity to be listened to and to explore some of the difficulties you may be experiencing.
Loneliness, helplessness and confusion are often feelings that affect people on a daily basis and also affect those around us. Talking to a counsellor can help you gain an understanding as to why things feel as they do and to find new ways of coping in order that you can feel more in control of your future.
I am a qualified BACP Senior accredited counsellor and also a qualified supervisor and work with both adults, children and young people. I have been practicing for twenty years - 16 years of this experience has been working with young people (between ages 16-18) within an education environment, whilst also working with adults and young people in private practice. During the last six years I have also been working with young children (from aged 7) using the medium of play to support them through different anxieties, low self-esteem and relationship difficulties. Additionally , I am working for a charity organisation in Lymington as a group supervisor, providing group support and supervision to counsellors in training. I also have a successful private practice based in Landford and also Romsey, located within easy reach of Chandlers Ford, New Forest and Salisbury.
EFFECTS OF THE PANDEMIC
Over the past three years, we have all experienced one of the biggest worldwide global health crises which has had huge repercussions on so many aspects of our lives - families have been separated and bereaved; children have missed out on learning and socialising. For many, like other ongoing crises, the pandemic has made the need for mental health support more real and urgent. But we also need to hold in mind change is possible. So please do not suffer alone. If you feel you, or a member of your family are continuing to struggle, please give yourself permission to reach out for support.
