Has a current or previous relationship left you feeling sad, disconnected, and lost? Perhaps a controlling or abusive relationship has shattered your life, and left you feeling scared or unable to have the relationships, and life, you truly would like. As a result of such experiences, has your self-esteem and sense of worth plummeted, leaving you feeling hopeless and sometimes even, to blame or undeserving? I’m Grace, and I am a fully qualified Integrative therapist specialising in Relationships, abuse and trauma.

As a Clinical Psychologist I am passionate about working with people to address their emotional and mental health difficulties and to achieve their treatment goals. I have a particular interest in working with addictions, trauma, and anxiety disorders and as such these are my main areas of expertise. In addition to working privately, I also worked in an NHS Addictions Service until recently, predominantly with alcohol and illicit drugs, and as a result much of my work was with people with complex mental health needs.

We all get stuck, from time to time. Sometimes it feels like we cannot move forward. It can be frustrating, constraining and painful. Yet there is energy behind every blockage, and looking at it from above – as if from a bridge – can be the first step to unlocking our potential. This is what I aim to offer to my clients, whether they are facing depression, anxiety, loss, recovering from trauma or going through a difficult transition. My approach is creative, in that it adapts to individual needs, and culturally sensitive, as it draws on my experience of transit and change. I practise in English and Italian. Face to face and online.

Although I work with a variety of issues, my passion is to support those who have suffered from a traumatic experience(s) that influences their quality of life. This might include adverse childhood experiences, attachment disruption, sexual or emotional abuse/ neglect or loss. I am here to support if you are suffering from low self-esteem, dissociation, engaging in self-harming activities, and want to feel differently about yourself and life.

Life brings many challenges and it is understandable that at times we might look for support in facing them. As a therapist my role is to provide space and guidance to help you on your journey of self discovery to enable you to examine your life and make new, meaningful choices within it. I offer a chance to reflect on the difficulties you are experiencing with someone from outside your day-to-day life. Together we can explore your situation in a way that leads to fresh perspectives and perhaps a new understanding of yourself. Therapy isn’t about giving you solutions or advice but rather empowering you to make your own changes.

Starting personal therapy is a big decision and it makes sense to wonder where to start and which psychotherapist to choose. How would you know what’s right for you? Making the decision to tell someone about the things that bother you most is not an easy one. However, if you are here, I would guess there’s a need to talk. Whatever it is - whether it is problems in the present, memories of the past or worries about the future - I can promise you a safe and confidential space to talk about it. A journey to find out what can make things better for you is a lot easier if you’re not alone in it.

As the saying goes, 'Its' good to talk', and I'm hear to listen. Whether life has just got a bit too much at the moment, or whether there are longer term factors and influences you'd like to explore and process, together, we can find a way. I could go into more detail, but for me, reading a blurb doesn't help establish whether I'm the right counsellor for you. If you've reached the point where you are actively looking I'd suggest sending me an email or giving me a bell, lets have a chat and see if I'm able to provide what you need.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Southampton are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Southampton then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Southampton, or Child Psychologists in Southampton.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Southampton psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Southampton specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
