Counselling & Therapy New Forest & Winchester

I’m Tom your fully qualified and experienced counsellor (Winchester University) I’ve been involved with counselling for over 20 years and have worked full-time since 2003.
I grew up in a small village surrounded by countryside and it was here I developed my love of nature. I was also surrounded by Aunts, Uncles and Cousins and had sense of freedom in my childhood. At 20 years old, I formed my own business and into my twenties and early thirties worked hard into developing it. Unfortunately in this period I experienced some losses, and emotional upsets and I realised I was suffering with anxiety, depression and some forms of OCD.
It was at this time I started to become interested in psychology and entered into some therapy of my own. This helped me overcome many of my difficulties and I eventually went to train and qualify in different psychotherapies until I become a fully recognised and registered therapist and counsellor.
I’ve run my own clinics since 2003 and have many thousands of client hours behind me, first in Basingstoke, then running a busy clinic in Harley Street, London, before moving to the New Forest area as a way of working slightly less hours. (it doesn’t seem to be like this yet!)
I carry out continuing training and have trained in many areas such as Bereavement, Depression and Traumas, attend regular supervision and work to a code of Ethics demanded by the main Associations connected to counselling and therapy. I’m a full accredited member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (see www.bacp.co.uk) which oversees counsellor and psychotherapist in this country and regulates a code of ethics and skill training etc.
I do have a great interest in how the mind works and the behaviours we carry out, and attend training, and read constantly to learn more to improve my craft and knowledge. In my personal life I’m married, have 5 children and I enjoy walking, reading, writing and kayaking.
