Welcome my name is Mark and I am a BACP accredited counsellor based in Central Winchester offering face to face counselling to anyone over the age of 16. The idea of meeting a Counsellor you dont know and talking about your life and presenting concerns can feel scary and vulnerable. Many people have the idea that you have to talk about your life, but you dont have to if you want to. Counselling is about empowering you to take control of what you share and how life impacts you in the present


Counselling can be lifechanging and liberating but it doesn’t have to be long term. Sometimes short-term therapy is enough to feel heard and make sense of what is happening can be sufficient. A one off 90 minute session can be enough for you to have an idea of your needs


An idea of what can be addressed and worked through in counselling is below

Addiction. It can seem a scary word. You don’t have to have an addiction to have counselling. You maybe using to many drugs or drinking to much and need a bit of help stop or even cut down. Counselling can help you control what is needed for you to get your life back on track

Family and friends. Its really hard to see someone struggling with addiction. Many often feel powerless, helpless and hopeless. 1in 5 people are affected by someones addiction. Counselling can help by understanding addiction and learning to support a loved one in a  healthy way

Mental Health. Struggling with your anxiety? Panic attacks and that dread of just going out? Low mood and stressed. GPs just offering medication but not therapy? Sound familiar. You’re not alone and it can feel debilitating when you are not listened to other professionals. Counselling can help significantly with all mental health conditions

ACEs. (adverse childhood effects) A Disrupted childhood can be tough to understand and make sense of. Flash back and intrusive thoughts can prevent you moving forward. Counselling can help you come to terms with has happened and overcome your fears

Trauma Is normally an emotional response to an event that you have witnessed or been involved in. Counselling can help you by challenging your thoughts and overcome your fears


Epilepsy. Coming to terms with a diagnoses can tough and difficult to accept. Counselling can help you come to terms with what is happening, reframing thoughts, shame , stigma,  and acceptance of a different life
