Hello and welcome.
My name is Teresa.
I am a qualified registered counsellor abiding by the Ethics and Policies of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I started my counselling journey by attending an introduction to counselling course in 2011. This lead to an GCE Advanced Level course and finally, I graduated in 2015 with a Diploma of Higher Education in Person-Cenetred Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I now have over 5 years of client work behind me.
I decided at the start of 2019 to take the plunge a start my own private practice. I was drawn to the idea of being able to work within the ethics and standards I want to provide. To not be held back by time limited sessions within a certain criteria.
I want to be able to offer affordable flexible sessions that have your needs first and foremost.
'We cannot change, we cannot move away from what we are, until we thoroughly accept what we are. Then change seems to come about almost unnoticed.'

Person Centered Counselling
Person-Centered Counselling is a talk therapy that is client-centered.The root of the approach is the client. It is about your needs and what you want out of your sessions. I do not offer any advice or quick fixes. I will work with you at your own pace and support you to find your own self-awareness and enable you to be more in tune with what's going on within yourself. I believe that given the right environment you are able to find your own solutions in yourself, and work out what is best for you. I am able to supply this environment.
I believe the relationship between the counsellor and the client is the foundation of a strong therapeutic relationship. I strive to make you feel comfortable and held so no matter what you bring to a session you feel supported and understood.
This can sound overwhelming, but this I believe will lead to us exploring the cause to any problems.
Leaving you in a place where you are more able to face the future.
Room and Location
I work from two locations.
A room in Shirley, Southampton
and in Sholing, Southampton.
Both have setup counseling rooms in the permies
that are quiet and comfortable.
