I understand that human beings can sometimes lose their way at times, yet I believe in the power for each person to find their own path to ‘ultimate health’. With 15 years of clinical experience, I offer deep level support and challenge to facilitate permanent change and self growth and self support. I will offer an honest evaluation and an empathic response to your needs and work with you to develop your personal power and lifetime change.
There are times when we may struggle to cope or sense our life is stuck and feel powerless to change it. Taking the first steps towards finding the support and help you need is a courageous and important act, so please know that whatever issues bring you here, you will be heard. Counselling can help you to explore your inner world, make significant changes to your life and find your true self. I am a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) and adhere to the Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.
Experienced in providing safe and confidential counselling support for individuals, couples and families for a wide number of life challenging issues affecting home and / or work related problems. The problem might be a one off issue or trauma or a recurrent cycle that keeps returning. Loss, relationship, anxiety, trauma, parent/child issues. Workplace problems & relationships and career issues. Needing change in your life? Delighted to work with you.
I spent 15 years working as a Relate Counsellor, alongside this I have built up a successful Practice Practice working with couples, individuals, children and young people, supporting them in improving their emotional and mental well-being. I offer a bespoke ‘wrap-around’ approach setting activities between each session, which allows on-going personal growth and development. By supporting you to explore difficulties, my aim is to facilitate you to have a deeper awareness of your core triggers and understanding of your patterns of behaviours, leading to lasting change.
So, can talking to someone help? ABSOLUTELY! Regardless of the reason you might keep it in, talking has powerful psychological benefits that might not be obvious. Life can throw up many challenges and I am able to offer a safe, supportive, confidential environment for adults and young people to talk through and try and make sense of what they are finding difficult. Sometimes, we can struggle to find the words to share our internal world or communicate our feelings. Using creative tools together can be useful to help identify and process what is happening.
I am a qualified counsellor offering therapy on a one to one basis. I offer a confidential space to explore your thoughts and feelings. I work with both short term and long term clients. We go at a pace that suits you. I am a college lecturer, teaching counselling which allows me to be robust in many theories. I use a combination of these theories to support my clients. I have been in the media for my achievements working with hoarding behaviours. More recently, I have been in the media, TV, newspapers and radio for my campaign to raise awareness of Blue Spot. I am studying my degree in Criminology and Psychology.
If you are stuck in some challenging situations, feeling tired, frustrated or overwhelmed, not knowing what to do, I would like to offer you the appropriate resources and support. Even people with supportive family or friends may find it difficult to discuss personal issues with those close to them. Counselling provides a setting that is impartial, safe and confidential. It can help to bring insight into your difficulties thus helping you to deal with them and move on to enjoy the life.
Sometimes we can find ourselves in a place where we 'can't see the wood for the trees'. We feel as if we have little or no control over ours or others behaviour. That the direction your life is taking, is going the wrong way. Accompanying this here can often be a sense of loss or injustice, of not being able to imagine a better future. With up to date psychological understanding there is a better future. Building on your own knowledge and resources we can identify your personal goals and what you want out of your appointments. This tailored approach will work with you to resolve your barriers to achieving success.
Are you feeling troubled, distressed or even confused by relationship difficulties, life transitions, crises, helplessness, grief, isolation, anxiety, depression or loss of direction? Talking to a professional counsellor in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment can enable you to understand yourself better, make your situation more manageable and lead to lasting behavioural change. As a BACP accredited counsellor with 18 years experience of counselling adults with various difficulties, I understand how important it is to find the right counsellor to help you. For this reason I offer a free one hour initial session.
I am a qualified counsellor who specialises in working with Teenagers and Young Adults. Over the years I have helped clients with a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, anger, bereavement, low self-esteem, relationships and self-improvement to name a few. I strongly believe that we are all essentially "OK" but that life can throw many things at us that cause us to believe we are not. Together we can talk about what has left you feeling less than "OK" and find a way back to a place of self-confidence and belief.
I can help anyone who is not feeling the best that they could feel, from people with specific issues to people who just don't feel right. I offer a hypno gastric band to aid in weight loss, as well as a 10 week hypnotherapy weight loss group. I also offer stop smoking hypnotherapy. I used to be a family solicitor, and so I specialise in helping clients through relationship breakdowns. This involves working through issues like anger, anxiety and depression as well as low self confidence.
I am a qualified counsellor happy to explore with you any difficulties, concerns, struggle or anxiety you may be experiencing in your life. My formal training is in Humanistic Counselling based on Person-Centred approach. The humanistic approach provides you with an opportunity to explore your self-development, so you have a deeper understanding of who you are and what are are feeling, resulting in improved self-awareness. My person-centred approach means that I strive to build a collaborative and trusting relationship which will allow you to focus on what is important to you because you are the expert of your life.
Welcome to the profile for my private counselling practice in Basingstoke, Hampshire. Why see a counsellor? It can help you better understand your thoughts, feelings and relationships. It can be about the past or the present, or the loss of someone or something. It may be about changing or finding new meaning in life. Maybe you feel stuck in ongoing circumstances, in your work or family life or just in how you feel within yourself. Counselling can be a place to find hope during difficult times or be somewhere to tackle a specific problem. If you feel stressed, anxious, depressed or confused, then counselling can often help.
Run-down? Tired? Feeling overwhelmed with your hectic life? Losing the battle between your professional responsibilities and commitments at home? Resentful? No one you can confide in?

Hello and welcome to my profile. Finding the right counsellor can seem daunting which is why I offer a free initial half hour meeting. This is an opportunity to discuss your counselling needs in more depth before committing to the process. You might be experiencing a crisis in your personal or work life, or have a general sense of not being quite happy or settled with certain aspects of your life. Counselling can help you feel heard in a safe environment and find a way forward to making the positive changes you desire.
Is anxiety a problem for you? Would you like to feel calmer, less stressed and sleep better? Perhaps you want to make positive changes in your life but don’t know where to start, or learn how to say no, be more assertive and kinder to yourself. Do you put yourself down & criticise yourself, struggle to make decisions or feel confused by your feelings and relationships? Counselling with me can help you. It’s the best self-care ever and can help you gain the confidence you need to feel better about yourself, reduce your stress and anxiety, explore your feelings and understand why you react to things in the way you do.
Hello, my name is Cath and I am a clinical psychologist. Thank you for having a look at my profile. I have worked in the NHS for several years, offering support to parents and caregivers, children and young people. I currently offer online only therapeutic input to individuals aged 11+. I am here to support you through the current difficulties you may be facing. I think it’s really important to build a strong therapeutic relationship so that you feel comfortable and supported and so this is forefront in my mind.
Through my work I have noticed that children with low confidence and low self esteem can express this through becoming withdrawn and avoidant or becoming angry and controlling. Parents come to me and tell me their child always wants control or they feel like they are stepping on eggshells when around their child. Parents might say that they wish their child would make friends and be more sociable, they always play alone. As a play therapist I help children to become more confident and happy within themselves which enables them to have positive relationships with their family and peers.
For more information, please see my website: https://concordiapsychologicalservices.co.uk/ As a Chartered Clinical Psychologist with nearly 20 years’ experience within mental health services, I am extremely passionate about the work I do. I am committed to enabling individuals to live a more fulfilling life, by helping them move in the direction of their values and goals. I qualified as a Clinical Psychologist from the University of Southampton in 2011. My Clinical Psychology training enables me to work flexibly, adapting a broad range of approaches to the needs of my clients.
Many of us experience times in our lives when we feel overwhelmed, stressed or feel anxious or depressed. Relationship difficulties or significant life events can bring huge change or loss or perhaps you recognise patterns in your life you would like to change. I offer a warm, empathic, non-judgemental and safe space in which to explore thoughts, feelings and behaviours, finding effective strategies to help you move forwards in your life. As a Humanistic Counsellor, I believe we all have the potential for personal growth and healing given the right circumstances.
