Hello, my name is Lynne and I'm a professionally qualified counsellor and registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. Are you struggling to make sense of how you’re thinking and feeling or finding it difficult to express yourself in your relationships with others? Are you overwhelmed but feel you can’t burden anyone with your worries? If trying to cope is making you more anxious, depressed or causing problems in your relationships, you're not alone. We can all feel overwhelmed at times and in need of support but you don’t always have to struggle to work things out on your own.

I am a fully qualified person centred therapist with over 15 years experience.

Together, we will work through the challenges you're facing and work towards a place where you can feel at ease with yourself.

Offer a reduced session fee to reflect the current cost of living crisis. Therapy should not be a luxury. I have been working as a therapist for 10 years and have a broad breadth of experience working with many presenting issue's. I take a warm, comfortable, welcoming and genuinely caring approach to my work. Asking for help can be very difficult and I recognise that. If you feel you have tried everything and nothing has changed then talking to a professional may help. You don't need to be in crisis to benefit from therapy. Therapy can be useful to increase awareness and provide understanding of why we do what we do.

The last few years have been a real strain for most people. Perhaps you don't feel right, your relationships might be suffering, you may feel exhausted from trying to maintain a positive side. Maybe you keep doing the same things over and over but cannot seem to break the cycle. I believe we all have the capacity to help ourselves through much of this but, in an increasingly complex and busy life where we are ‘always on’, there often feels like there's little time available to focus on 'me'. Counselling gives you the valuable space and time to find your way in a supported and non-judgmental environment.

Making the decision to enter into psychotherapy can be an important step and my aim is to offer a confidential space to discuss your concerns. Psychotherapy can be an opportunity to talk through what feels difficult or problematic in life. Sometimes people have an idea about the nature of their difficulties, others are less sure. Talking with a therapist can help you to discover and make sense of what is leaving you feeling either stuck, lost, anxious, unhappy or overwhelmed.

Are you struggling with issues that you find difficult to discuss with those who are close to you? Perhaps you feel stuck, anxious, have a general feeling of unhappiness that you can't shift? Life can be far from straight forward, in fact life is messy. We cannot escape the messiness of being human but we can make small changes in our lives that can help us to grow and move forward. Counselling can help us to do that.

NOT TAKING NEW CLIENTS. Hello, my name is Colette. Lock-down has allowed people to reflect. For some it has been stressful; confinement has brought underlying relationship issues to the surface and they’re asking themselves if they’ve reached a cross-roads. These feelings are important sign-posts and offer a route to a happier and richer state of mind – if you’re able to work through them successfully. It is often helpful to have someone other than family and friends to discuss your thoughts and make sense of them in a structured way . I approach my work with warmth and compassion and am experienced in a wide range of issues.

I am a Psychodynamic Counsellor working in Hampshire. If you are experiencing issues with anxiety, depression, stress, bereavement, abuse, relationship issues or a lack of confidence, I offer counselling where together we can get to the bottom of your difficulties and help you to understand yourself more clearly. Psychodynamic Counselling can provide you with a confidential, non-judgemental 'space' to reflect upon and work through the issues you are facing. Counselling requires commitment from us both, but gradually, over time, it can be a rewarding way to enable you to manage the issues that life throws your way.

Do you struggle with anxiety, poor self-esteem, relationship difficulties, or other emotional issues? Do you sometimes find it difficult to articulate what the problem is or feel that words are just not enough to express it? It might be that Dramatherapy is right for you. Dramatherapy is a form of psychological therapy/psychotherapy in which all of the performing arts are utilised within the therapeutic relationship (BADth). It is particularly helpful when you struggle to articulate what the problem is or when words are just not enough to express it. Clients do not need to have previous experience or skills in acting, theatre or drama, it is not about performing well or being good at acting, rather it is about making use of dramatic tools to explore, address and make sense of troubling issues. I am Marta Paglioni, a Dramatherapist clinical practitioner registered with HCPC and full member of BADth (British Association of Dramatherapists). - Cover image from: <a href="http://www.freepik.com">Designed by Freepik</a>)-

I am an Integrative (Humanistic) counsellor specialising in young people and adolescents from age 11-25. Counselling provides a space to talk to someone independently, confidentially and safely. It gives an opportunity to explore, and understand, feelings, thoughts, experiences and emotions which may be hidden, troubling or confusing without judgement, and with warmth and compassion. Working together enables the exploration of being your true self. Everyone has their own unique way of looking at the world which can impact choices and actions. Through self-awareness you can understand the causes of your concerns or triggers.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Winchester?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

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 Winchester 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.
