Counselling Basingstoke, Fleet & Hook
If you are concerned about an important area of your life such as:
A valued relationship
Experiencing anger, anxiety, stress or depression
Coping with redundancy, retirement or bereavement
Counselling can help make changes that are meaningful to you.
Asking for help can be really difficult.
My aim is to provide a welcoming, 'jargon-free' experience in a safe space where you feel heard...
I believe there is always a way to take small positive steps forward, however difficult the situation. I will be encouraging and we will work at the right pace for you.
"Having found myself at a dead end I finally plucked up the courage to seek counselling. I found John via the internet. After my counselling sessions I wished I had 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. I cannot thank him enough for helping and guiding me. I now have a much happier and better life. I am still reaping the benefits..."
I offer a wide range of counselling services to men, women, couples and families.
I am often asked whether men contact me. I find that on average 50% of my clients are men, 30% women and 20% couples or families.
What to Expect
In the first session we will explore your situation fully. I will explain my approach and answer any questions you may have. If you would like to work with me we will then agree a focus for the work.
The number of sessions that clients have varies based on a number of factors. I will work flexibly to meet your specific needs. I often find valuable changes can be achieved in six sessions.
If you feel ready to try a new approach please do contact me. A referral from a GP or Agency is not necessary.
I offer sessions Monday through Friday with daytime and evening options.
I am a fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist. I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP).
I have a long-term and established private practice in Rotherwick. Sessions take place in a welcoming, peaceful, self-contained consulting room in an oak-framed building.
Rotherwick is in a discreet rural setting a short drive from Basingstoke, Fleet & Hook in North Hampshire.
