Counselling for Basingstoke, Fleet & HookIf you are concerned about important areas of your life such as a valued relationship; or if you are experiencing difficulty with anger, anxiety, panic, stress, depression; or a change in your life is proving challenging to cope with such as redundancy, new job, divorce, illness, retirement or bereavement, I offer an opportunity to achieve a positive outcome that is meaningful to you.
Basingstoke Counselling ServiceI know that asking for help can be really hard and my aim is to provide a welcoming, 'jargon-free' experience where you feel heard.
I strongly believe there is always a way to take positive steps forward, however difficult a situation may seem. I will be encouraging and will work with you at a pace that you're comfortable with.
"Having found myself at a dead end and finally plucking up the courage to seek counselling I found John via the internet, after my counselling sessions I wished I had the courage to have done it much sooner, the calm inviting surroundings, John's ability to just listen and ask the right questions enabled me to deal with many demons and I cannot thank him enough for helping and guiding me onto a much happier and better life for which I am still reaping the benefits..."
Getting StartedIn a first session I will explore your situation fully with you, explain my approach, answer any questions you may have and, if you would like to work further with me, agree a focus for future sessions. I find the number of sessions that clients have varies greatly and believe there is no right or wrong number. I will work flexibly to meet your specific needs and often find that valuable changes can be achieved within six sessions.
About MeI am a fully trained and accredited British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) Counsellor with an established private practice. Sessions take place in a welcoming and peaceful purpose built consulting room in a separate, self-contained, oak-framed building in Rotherwick; a discrete rural environment in North East Hampshire, a short drive from Basingstoke, Fleet & Hook.
I work with men, woman, couples and families. I am sometimes asked whether many men contact me for sessions. I generally find at any one time that approximately 50% of my clients are men, 30% are women and 20% couples / families.
