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.

Going through a bereavement or loss can make you feel lost, not knowing how or what to do to make yourself feel better. Sometimes it may feel like you won't ever feel better. Talking about who or what you have lost can be a way forward to help you understand how you feel and may shed light on your future.

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.

Hi, I am based in Marchwood but also offer mobile counselling in a 10 mile radius. Counselling is a place to help you explore the personal worries and issues you face. I aim to listen in an accepting, understanding, therapeutic and confidential way. During the counselling I aim to build a warm, honest, genuine and open relationship between us, in which you find trust in me and yourself, to empower you to explore your personal world and make the best decisions for yourself. This in turn, I believe, will enable you to reflect and make the best decisions for yourself in order to develop your own personal growth.

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.

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.

Are you sad, experiencing an ongoing battle with low mood and depression? Do you need time and space to work through what's causing your anxiety , stress, upset in your life? Does the daily struggle leave you exhausted and feeling like you want to give up? Physical symptoms are a result of an overthinking mind, negative thought patterns and habits that are causing you emotional distress. You are not alone and effective therapy can be a life changing process enabling you to feel happier and more fulfilled. Taking back control needs new skills, coping mechanisms and a different perspective - making the call is the first step.

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.

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.
