I embrace and believe as a Humanistic counsellor that all people have inherent worth and deserve respect and sensitivity. I hold faith that over time, we all have an innate tendency to move forward realizing our potential for growth, understanding and acceptance. I believe that we are all organically creative and highly individual and we all have the right to experience emotional challenges in our own way and in our own time-eventually resulting in psychological wellness and/or acceptance and my hope - inner peace.

I am a highly experienced counsellor and my aim is to create a positive, trusting environment in which I help you to help yourself. I provide a safe and caring professional counselling and psychotherapy service. I am an empathic and approachable person working in a non-judgemental and confidential way. By exploring your past, the causes of present day problems are often revealed. We can't change the past, but we can gain understanding allowing you to relate differently to yourself, others and problems in order to choose to make changes or find acceptance.

Hello, my name is Matthew and I am a counsellor based in the Havant area working from the Leigh Park Community Centre. I realise that counselling is a brave step to take with initially making the enquiry and then having the courage to attend the first session. I have had counselling in my life and being listened to seemed surreal at first. Friends and family had always given their opinions and reassurances, with the best of intentions at heart, yet being really listened to was ground-breaking for me. I aim to ease any anxiety by arranging an appointment as soon as possible so therapy can begin.

Walk-Talk Therapy: Do you want to re-connect with nature? To feel more grounded, mindful & to just slow down? We will walk in the beautiful woods and fields near my counselling room in the South Downs. Walking & being in nature releases endorphins which in turn reduces depression and anxiety. Life is often so busy that nature becomes removed - this will give you time to reconnect. For some people face to face traditional counselling is too anxiety provoking, so walking in parallel can feel more comfortable.

Hello I’m Jeni. I am trained in Dramatherapy, which is an alternative to talking therapies. I have found that, when things are too hard to talk about initially, creativity can help us to express and process and then release what no longer serves us. My private practice allows me to work online with adults, and young people, and in a Primary school with a specialist speech and language unit. I have also worked in numerous Secondary schools. I have experience in working with anxiety, low self esteem, pre and post bereavement, fostering and adoption (life story work) neurodiversity and survivors of sexual assault

My background is working in mainstream schools with children who are neurodivergent. I understand how having a learning difficulty, Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC) or ADHD can make it a struggle to fit in with the structure of school. These struggles can often make the individual highly anxious and struggle to remain regulated throughout the day. I also have an understanding of the difficulties and frustrations felt by parents and other family members. I am able to offer a warm, calm and inviting space to provide counselling to all.

My private practice is online and I have worked this way since 2017. I have been told by my clients, that the way I work with them, has helped them to face the hardest times in their lives. That for me is the whole point, to not have to deal with it alone. As a counsellor I will listen and be there with you. It's a safe space, to be heard and understood. It is not about me, it's about you. Together we will try and make some sense of it. You do not have to go through it alone.

Play Therapy , especially non-directive play therapy is helpful for children, because it allows them to express themselves freely and without pressure to talk.
I am an integrative and trauma informed counsellor based in Chichester West Sussex. I work therapeutically with children, young people and adults in a gentle, empathic and warm way. Fundamental to my approach is the belief that we all have the potential to change, develop and lead more satisfying lives. You may be having relationship difficulties, issues with anxiety, experienced trauma of some kind, or looking to change an aspect of your life that is not fulfilling. In providing a relationship which feels safe you can, at your own pace, find your own answers and feel heard and supported towards a happier way of living and being

I use talking, play and creativity as therapeutic tools to allow my clients to express themselves in different ways however, there is no pressure on clients to use all or any of these specific tools.
Experiencing problems or difficulties can impact on our feelings, behaviour, relationships and ability to engage in learning and growing - children and young people are no different! Poor mental health can cause disruptions to a child’s life and without appropriate support it can stay with them throughout their adult life, affecting their long-term wellbeing and ability to reach their full potential. Sometimes it is difficult to speak to people we feel closest too, we don't want to upset or worry them. Counselling offers a child a regular, private safe space to express and explore any worries and difficult feelings.

As children/adolescents do not usually talk openly about their difficulties, they will often communicate their feelings and thoughts through play , the arts and verbal communication to explore how they feel and think.
I am an experienced and fully qualified therapeutic counsellor for children and adolescents aged 4-19 years old, and provide counselling in a confidential, non judgemental and safe setting. My therapy room is based in Farnborough and I am able to offer support and relief from the overwhelming and anxious feelings that can leave a child or adolescent feeling vulnerable. I have found that through the therapy process, children and young people can develop their communication skills and confidence levels, as well as learning how to cope with difficult feelings.

Play Therapy Counsellors
Generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of counselling that relies on play to help therapists communicate with children and understand their mental health. Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys--such as playhouses and dolls--to understand the child's behaviour and identify issues.

If you're looking for play therapy in Portsmouth or for a Portsmouth play therapy counsellor, these professionals provide play therapy, play therapy children, child play therapy, play therapy for children, sandplay therapy, family play therapy and group play therapy. They include play therapists, play psychologists, play psychotherapists in Portsmouth, and play counsellors.
