Hello, and a warm welcome to my website. My hope is, that in taking the first step in seeking help - in finding a counsellor - you will have the courage to keep going in your desire to resolve your problems.

People seek counselling help for many reasons. At this time you may be suffering from anxiety - due perhaps to a build up of stress, concerns about your health, relationship problems, concern for loved ones or fear about the future. It may be that you don't know the reason for your anxiety but you are feeling fearful and restless.

You may be suffering from depression and feel unable to enjoy life or find very little in your life to be positive about.You may be experiencing suicidal thoughts.

You may have very low self esteem and lack confidence - feel inferior to others and worry about what they think of you. You may feel you are being controlled or manipulated and don't know how to stop it.

Your problem may focus around a difficult relationship/s - which is making you unhappy and affecting other areas of your life.

Addiction to alcohol, drugs, food, gambling, the internet, pornography - can cause severe problems for the individuals concerned as well as for their families and friends.


Speaking with a counsellor can be very helpful way of resolving the above problems and other issues - listed further down the page. It is often easier to share a problem with an independent person - rather than a friend or family member - someone who is emotionally detached from you. It is surprising how beneficial this can be and how working through problems with a counsellor in a calm environment, receiving suggestions as to how change might come about and as to how problems may be resolved - can be totally life changing. Just having someone who is willing to listen to you and who is willing to try to understand how you are feeling and support you, can help because you are no longer trying to cope on your own.

I am a qualified counsellor and I meet with clients in my counselling room in Newbury town centre which is within easy reach of Basingstoke and areas around Newbury, Berkshire. I can offer you a private, calm place where you can talk in complete confidence about your problems and receive help and support in a non-judgemental way.
