Would you like to talk to someone in confidence? There are times in our lives that we hesitate to share our inner thoughts and feelings, or keep our problems and painful experiences, anxieties, or worries from our friends, loved ones, and family. In times like these, it is helpful to talk things out in confidence to someone who will listen without being judgemental or critical, but will be there to offer a tentative ear with empathic understanding, with a genuine care, warmth and respect.

You might wish you could be less scared of being in a romantic relationship or maybe you want to be more respectful and assertive with yourself. Family interactions might be a challenge, leaving you feeling angry and/or invisible. Maybe they are the reason you like to please others. It might be that you are crippled with anxiety and are wondering whether the way you treat yourself is the reason you are here. Maybe you lay awake at night wondering whether things could be different. ….. “If only I had the confidence to speak up"

In times of uncertainty, stress and anxiety can show up in different ways for people, and there could be a combination of things that have brought you here. Maybe relationships have been increasingly difficult and it's trying to figure out reasonable boundaries or finding compassion for yourself and others. It may be that having less contact with friends and family has left you feeling isolated or experiencing unhelpful thinking patterns or distressing memories. Perhaps you've recently moved or had a change in your career and now feel stuck with old beliefs and habits or external influences affecting your situation.

Does life sometimes feel like a jigsaw puzzle with pieces not slotting together? I am a great believer that we need to invest in ourselves. When life becomes difficult and those pieces are just not fitting, counselling gives you the opportunity to focus on yourself, make you the priority in an otherwise busy life. I have been through such times and it encouraged me to train as a counsellor to help clients with general mental health issues and other life difficulties, such as grief, addiction, sexuality, domestic abuse and anger issues.

I have lived and worked in many different cultures and enjoy working with people from all over the world. I am LGBTQI+ friendly. I encourage clients to work at a comfortable pace and start where they like. When possible I facilitate clients to use their body sensations, memories and images in a creative form of self-discovery called Focusing (Gendlin). I use Brainspotting (Grand) to enable clients to reprocess trauma, anxiety and stuck experiences at the subcortical level. Rather than talk about problems, I work with the neurobiology of the limbic system. This allows people to change habits, overcome fear and enhance their lives.

Life presents us all with situations we never believed we would find ourselves in and sometimes they can feel really tough. During those times, despite our best efforts, we can sometimes end up even more confused about what to do for the best. And the more confused we become the worse we feel about life, our ability to cope and ourselves in general . Its a downward spiral that can make us say and do things we bitterly regret but we have no idea how to change it all and feel more in control. In fact sometimes circumstances can feel like they control us and we feel totally powerless.

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.
