Outside of my private practice I work with children and young people and also volunteer for a counselling charity where I see people of all ages.
You will have your own reasons for coming to therapy. You may be finding it hard to cope, have a desire for change or life’s challenges may leave you anxious, stressed or depressed. You may be feeling stuck and unable to move forward or feel alone with difficult thoughts and feelings. I'm an empathetic, non-judgemental therapist who offers a confidential space where you can feel safe, understood and trusted as you start to explore the reasons why you feel the way you do.I will support you to understand the challenges you face and the changes you wish to make.

I have experience in working with both adult clients and children and started my counselling journey working in children and adolescent mental health for the NHS.
Hello I'm Jen and I am a person-centred therapist and I have been in private practice since May 2020 where I see clients remotely. I offer person-centred therapy to both adults and children . Working as a person-centred therapist I believe the client is very much the driver of their own therapy journey and I am here to offer that safe space required to enable the client to freely explore what is going on for them at a pace which feels natural to the individual. There is no obligation to set goals as the therapy I provide is very fluid and can go in any direction as the therapy offered is all about the person and not goals or targets.

Do you feel stuck, sad, or anxious? Are you an adult struggling with life right now? Or a parent concerned for your child or teen? Life can throw up difficulties at any time, a difficult childhood, trauma, or a relationship breakdown. You or your child may have experienced bullying, difficulties fitting in or managing social and cultural expectations. These experiences can lead to the development of anxiety and low mood, self esteem issues, and other mental health difficulties. Therapy can help you to understand yourself, and the impact of your thoughts and behaviours more deeply.

I'm experienced working with both children and adults, and offer both short and long term counselling.
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.

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.

Clients often seek counselling to help at times when they may need to resolve emotional, psychological or relationship issues. It can be difficult to talk to loved ones about their feelings and emotions. Counselling can be a positive way of addressing unresolved issues and useful in helping clients understand their own problems better. It can help people gain perspective of themselves and others and encourage self-awareness. By talking about and exploring your emotions and feelings it may help you come to your own conclusions bringing about positive changes and empowering you to take your next steps in life.

Hi! My name is Claudia (she/her). I'm a counsellor, therapist, mother, wife, daughter, dog lover, friend among many other roles! The challenges of having all these roles made me reflect on the importance of taking care of our mental health which led to my training in Gestalt Therapy. My profession is my passion and I feel privileged to help transform lives for the better. Many times, the way we deal with our problems and needs ends up keeping us stuck, generating more and more suffering like anxiety, depression and stress.

Child Counsellors
Child psychologists in Southampton, ENG provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time, while the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Southampton build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also see the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
