Hi, I am Mandy. I am an accredited counsellor/psychotherapist. In addition to offering on-line counselling, I work face to face from two locations, Basingstoke and Winchester and I am qualified to counsel children, adults and couples. I provide a space where your story can be told and heard, a space where you can feel safe and connected. I believe that our early life experiences impact our thoughts and behaviour in adulthood. Through the counsellor/client relationship, Psychodynamic counselling works to help you become more self-aware, gain insight and understanding of your past and present to find ways of doing things differently that are empowering to you. A willingness to test ideas and explore thoughts and themes is what will often lead to discoveries from the unconscious and eventually positive therapeutic change enabling you to take your new insight and apply it to your life outside therapy. We are born with the ability to imagine, dream, create and play and as an associate member of the Creative Counsellors Association I am able and happy to use a variety of creative medium with our counselling work. Whether it be art based, images, toys or sand work, there is a beneficial and meaningful connection between creativity and therapy. When working with children and young people, my approach is tailored to the individual, ethical and age-appropriate. Wherever our minds wander, our thoughts and feelings are important no matter how insignificant they may feel. Exploring them together helps develop a greater sense of ourselves and our experiences.
