If you're here, chances are you're looking for help...You may be struggling with a personal issue and feeling that something has to change.

Hello and welcome. Perhaps you are going through a difficult time at the moment. Each of us can go through times when we find it difficult to cope. We can feel stressed, and alone. Exploring your thoughts and feelings in a confidential space where you won’t feel judged can be a step towards clarity and change. You may feel anxious, depressed or suffer from low self-esteem. I believe each person can help themselves find the way forward towards achieving their full potential and leading happier lives. I can help you to understand yourself and to recognise changes that you can make to ease discomfort that you may be experiencing.

I provide a confidential safe space to learn about you, to consider direction or find meaning, in a way that isn’t always possible with friends or family. With over 14 years experience i can help you explore whatever aspects of your life you may want to better understand or change. We all struggle from time to time, and you don't have to face it alone. An opportunity to explore your thoughts and feelings freely without judgement, and learn how to help yourself on the not so good days….(and we all have them) If you choose to work with me sessions and the length of time we work together will be suited to you.

Hi, I'm Catherine and I am a BACP registered Person Centred counsellor. At times we can feel overwhelmed by life - past experiences, difficulties in the present and fears about the future. Counselling can be very helpful during these difficult times. It can enable us change the way we think about feel about things. It can help us explore our thoughts surrounding a particular issue, even when that might be challenging, and increase our self-confidence and self-esteem as we gain a deeper understanding of ourselves. By talking through things we all have the power to change our thinking and thrive as a result.

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.

Life presents us with difficulties and problems which can cause unhappiness and can leave you wondering how to cope or even if there is any point to it all. Anxiety and depression are common in our society today. Losing loved ones is something we all have to face at some point in our life. Events going on in our own country and around the world can make us feel unsettled and worried about the future. Talking about your experiences and feelings with a person-centred counsellor can really help. I am a warm and caring person with a genuine passion to help you find a way through your difficulties and find some peace within.

I mainly work with relationship issues - with individuals, couples or indeed any relationship dynamic. I qualified as a counsellor in 2001, specialised in couples work in 2004, and have been working with relationships since - both in the home and in business. We can work together online or in person. If you wish to work online as a couple, you just need to make sure you have good access to internet at home and a device that can clearly show both of your faces all of the time.

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.
